Annoyed at missing driver support.

So we purchased liquidFTA and wanted to install it on bare hardware. We were pointed to the RedHat hardware support list. We purchased a Dell R320.

liquidFTA is based off of CentOS 6.4

Only the FTA bootable image does not detect the Broadcom network cards and drops the install.

The full install of CentOS does have correct driver support.

The FTA requires you to have network access in order to enable the console.

Edit:

Update.... Dell did this: http://linux.dell.com/files/whitepapers/consistent_network_device_naming_in_linux-v0.92.pdf

There is no eth0 because it is setup as em1 and em2.

Now I am trying to resolve this, both myself and with the FTA developer in parallel.


Any ideas?

Yep, that doesn't help.

The dev programmed it not to have console access until you enter a license.

After he created an install that use the devbiosname=0 flag everything worked.

He also resolved a scripting issue with the disk expansion feature.

Most of the issues were because I'm installing on newer Dell hardware.

Now that all those issues are sorted....this thing rocks.
