Linux Can't Detect Hard Drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I tried to install Open Suse 10.2 a couple of weeks ago, and it said I didn't have any HDDs installed (even though I do, and I'm running Windows fine with it) I assumed it was do to my 580X chipset (a bit too new for most Linux OSes, I assumed) The Suse 10.3 Alpha came out, and no problems have been reported, so I was thinking of perhaps using that. I also found something on a forum for a way to get x1950 drivers on Linux (which ATI doesn't support still...)

Are there any Linux ditros that have been proven to function properly with the 580X chipset? If not, I'll just give the Suse 10.3 Alpha a shot (my buddy downloaded it last night) but if there's an actual released OS that could run on my chipset I would prefer that.

I've discovered that Linux can have problems recognizing newer drives. My old caviar 7200 250 is fine, but my new 7200.10 shows up, but won't function as a boot drive. I would guess you are right, it's the board. After all, I have Slackware running on the same hdd you have listed.

If SuSe doesn't do it probably nothing will since SuSe tends to have good drivers. Try ubuntu just to try a distro with a debian base. If that doesn't work you're probably out of luck
