Red Hat 9 error message: This version of Red hat is incompatible with your hardware

Post by Lon Ponsch » Sat, 03 Jul 2004 08:03:53



I have an old Tyan motherboard that I want to put Red Hat 9 on
but I get this error.


Have tried the install with both Knoppix and Red hat 9.


The install chokes after the initial system bootup occurs and then the
cds won't run. CD Rom is an Acer that works with everything else.


Is the Tyan just too old? Its bios is from before 1998 best as
I can figure. For another project, I was going to upgrade the bios of that
machine. Would that be effective?


Needless to say this Tyan S1564D Tomcat IV Dual (cpu) is no prize.


But can I get it to work for low level Inet connection as a backup computer?


Vid card is a Stealth 2000.

You may want to look into something from an earlier era. If you _want_
it to be Redhat:

You might even need to go back a little further than that, say around
5.0 to 6.0 region. I'm not sure. But I think 7.0 should work.

There are others on the Planet Mirror site as well. Just poke around
some to see what you come up with. You should be able to run stuff with
the 2.2.X or 2.0.X series kernels without too much trouble.

Here's one you can buy (requirements at bottom):

Here's a recent version that says it'll work:

In fact, that one is listed in the following link. Most of them are
recently released/updated, too. There are others that may work there,
and you just need to follow the links to see if something is suitable:
