FC6 test 2 failed too, (after FC5 and FC4) the same way. therefore, the
version of the kernel is very probably not the cause of the failure.
Its hard for me to believe that a commun MB is not supported (Intel says
linux supported, and i updated the BIOS).
- Is there any kind of mistake that i could have done when i plugged the
hardware ? or when i setted the BIOS choices ?
- If i have to use another MB, what would you advice has a safe choice.
