[K12OSN] Re: 2 network cards on a Dell GX-110



It is indeed a 3com 3c905b NIC, just like what is on the system board. I
haven't tried a different brand yet, so I think I'll go that route next.
Thanks for the help. Will let you know what I find.

Reply-To: k12osn redhat com

Does anyone have experience with GLX on K12LTSP?  I may be in a position to
recommend it to a few people, and I need to know if I can use GLX-based
programs (like Blender, Celestia, etc) as reasons for moving to K12LTSP.

Thanks,

Jon

I am trying to setup a K12LTSP server on a Dell GX-110 1ghz with 512mb ram.
Unfortunately, when installing a 2nd PCI NIC in the machine, in addition to
the integrated one on the system board, I run into an IRQ conflict. I can go
into the BIOS to change the IRQ number, but the other device that's causing
the conflict changes as well so that both have the same IRQ number, no
matter what I change it to. There are 2 PCI slots on the system and I have
tried all three with the same results. Has anyone had any experience with
this? TIA for any assistance.

Interesting: I'm using that exact machine and amount of memory for 
developing a pilot at my company.  For the second NIC I used a Belkin 
PCI "Desktop Network PCI Card" (I think the model # is F5D5000), the 
kind you can get for $5 plus a mail-in rebate for $5!  I believe it is 
based on the RealTek 8139B chip.  Anyway, I had no trouble installing it 
or K12LTSP v 3.0.1.  What device is it conflicting with?  I also have a 
SCSI card in mine, with a CD-RW attached to it.

If/when you do get it working, I'd be interested to hear if you see any 
performance difference with apps running on the client versus the 
console.  What I notice is that  many (most? all?) apps take two to 
three times as long to load on the client as on the console.  I have 
just one client at the moment, a P166 with a 100Mb NIC, with a 100Mb hub 
connecting the two, nothing else is plugged into the hub.  The problem 
could be with the client although I used this same client and hub in our 
test lab, using a dual Xeon 2.4Ghz server, and there I noticed no 
difference between that client and some other 700Mhz clients.  Perhaps 
it has to do with the video card on the client (?).  Anyway, I'd like to 
hear about the performance you get, just to compare notes.

Why type of Nic?  I have this running just fine on my 110 (600)  Haven't had
a reason to try on the 866 series.

I know that for sanity sake, I usually put a different type of nic than the
3com on board one just to remember which is which while looking at it.  I
usually use an intel 10/100 PCI nic.

Thanks
