Probably quite late to bring this up, but can anybody explain to me
why there is no i386 kernel available on the installation cd's since
8.0? And if this kernel version is considered obsolete (ie no support
for machines below i586) then why are updated i386 kernels still
released? That seems a little inconsistent.

While installing the beta i happily thought RedHat put in some
sort of patch to the kernel to not print out all those kernel-messages
to the screen while booting. When the install finished and i tried to
boot the system, i found the system still printing out kernel-messages.
The thing is that while installing the system i got some pictures
showing up in the installer about (from memory, not sure about spelling
or if its 100% as it was written in the image) "Who understood those
kernel message anyway?".
But, the kernel is still printing messages. Is it not only the
init-process not printing messages and thats not the kernel is it?
Sorry if this has already been a topic.
Would it be a totaly loss if the kernel got patched not to print
information to the screen, and rather just logged to a file?
The things printed while booting is not realy errors but lots of
information about IDE and other cards.. etc. These information is not
realy interesting for all people, and maybe also not understandable and
easy to be taken for errors. Having the boot graphical at this stage is
maybe hard, but only showing an "Init.." and showing only errors -
could that be hard to make?
Probably and issue best taking care of by the real kernel-developers?
Did we get any hands up for a separate taroon list?
Severn works fine for me but taroon doesn't and I'd really like to check it
out for work to consolidate a few servers. If anyone can point me in the
right direction I'd be grateful.
I usually try to customize the package selection
during install. This time, however, I decided to try
to install a fairly minimal system (nothing beyond
basic workstation) and then use the package manager to
install the rest after the first boot. However, I
can't seem to get the package manager to find my CD...
After selecting a few packages (or group of packages)
to install and selecting "install now", the program
asks for the corresponding CD (say, CD #3). I put the
CD in the drive and clik "OK". It asks me for CD #3
again. I verify that the CD is in the drive (I can
mount it and see that it is indeed CD #3) and I click
"OK". It unmounts the CD and asks me for CD #3 again,
and so on. I haven't been able to install a single
package with the package manager because of this.
What's going on??

I got similar errors with JetDirect and LPD printers few times, but in
general, JetDirect, Samba and LPD printing works well for me.

I've installed Severn on a P133 with 64M of RAM and noticed a few things.
- I'm amazed this actually works. I thought RHL had outgrown my
former computer a while ago.
- 85 minutes to install the standard Workstation setup.
Ugh. I'm not going to do this everyday.
- Choosing French for the installation, every line ends with " "
- Same thing for the startup messages. Is this a known issue?
- Hooking up the machine with my RHL 9 system via a twisted pair
network cable floods the screen with kernel errors. The network
card is a 3com 3c905 (have to double-check that one)
- redhat-config-xfree doesn't detect my monitor but I'm pretty sure that's
because of the KVM sitting between them. I'll try this again later with
the monitor hooked up directly to the computer.
It's explained in the release notes. Just pass "vnc" as kernel boot
parameter. The only problem I had with this is that you have to manually
assign an IP address to the system using ifconfig on console #2. I've
already filed a bug in bugzilla on this issue.
I had the same problem. I stumbled onto another workaround. If you type
'linux askmethod vnc' rather than 'linux vnc' it will pick up a dhcp
The down side is that you still have to go over to console #2 and do an
'ifconfig' to see what the address is since it was DHCP assigned and I'm
not a savant (idiot yes, savant no...)
So it would be nice if A) it would go through the static/dynamic address
assignment process before starting the VNC server and B) print out the IP
address that it is listening on. That's just my two ever so worthless
