Has anyone successfully installed opensuse (any version) on an xseries 342? (Single 1.13Ghz cpu, 512Mb, 2 x 18.2Gb scsi, Serveraid-4MX raid controller).
Any problems? Does it detect the scsi controllers and raid controller? I’m d/ling the serveraid support cd right now. It contains the raid bios and the support files for suse linux enterprise server. Will they work with opensuse? I have opensuse 10.1 on 5 cds. I can’t find anywhere to d/l 11.2 in cd isos, only as 1 large dvd iso, which is no good as the 342 only has a cd reader, and it’s a pain splitting dvd isos to cd isos.
I’m hoping to turn this old beast into a web server, preferably running LAMP (apache2 etc). Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received. I’ve already got a Poweredge 2550 running Ubuntu 9.4 server, but the IBM is a different kettle of fish, with Ubuntu crashing during install because of their disc naming conventions. I’m hoping opensuse should be ok as the IBM has support for SLED. It’s either opensuse or fedora, which I’m not a great fan of.
Sorry for such a long first question.
