Successful install - MSI K9N Neo
I just wanted to send a quick thank you to everyone who contributes to
the AMD64 port. I put together a computer with an MSI K9N Neo m-b and an
Athlon X2 3800.
I used the D-I Beta 3 net-install iso to install the testing
distribution. Just about everything went smoothly. If there is any
feedback I can provide for the AMD64 port or for the installer, please
let me know where to send (and how to provide it...I'm still cutting my
For completeness, my two problems were sound with alsa and usb printing
with cups. I could only get muted sound out of non-powered speakers. I
don't think the audio chip is full supported in the alsa drivers shipped
with the 2.6.16 or 2.6.17 kernel. I think it has been fixed in cvs or
svn or whatever. Powered speakers work just fine so I will worry about
that another day.
Also, I could not get usb printing to work with cups and an hp3900. I
think it is a known cups bug but I am not sure. Parallel port printing
work fine so again I will worry about that another day.
I am still getting everything up and running, but wanted to say Thank
you for all the hard work.
