ClearOS Feature Request

B560 Chipset

Resolved
0 votes
Hello

Will ClearOS work on the "new" B560 Chipset Motherboards with the 11th gen Intel CPU's? Or can there be any problems?

Thank you

    Different strain of Linux, but there are some ideas there. If the installer won't run because of graphics issues, you could try it in text mode - see the documentation here. They also suggested a later kernel. You don't quite have that option, but you can use the kernel-ml packages from ElRepo, but only if the supplied kernel has problems.

    I found this about B560: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=346412
    Can this also be done in ClearOS?

    Thank you for the link. I will try it, when I buy the motherboard and CPU, hopefully in a week ;)
    I still haven't decided if I should buy the B560 and 11th Gen, or the B460 and 10th Gen.
    I didn't get an answer from Redhat, if it supports B560, or when it will.

    There is a 7.9 iso now available for testing in https://mirrorlist.clearos.com/clearos/testing/7.9.1.325269/iso/x86_64/. (I originally posted this to the wrong thread)

    I wrote to Redhat and asked them if Redhat supports the new B560 chipset and 11th gen Intel CPUs.
    I also asked them if it doesn't support, if it will and when ;)
    I hope they will respond :)

    There is now a beta 7.9 iso but I don't know how to make it available for the moment.

    If it does not currently support a B560, I have no idea if it will come. That is completely up to Redhat as we use their kernel.

    Do you maybe know, if the ClearOS 7.9 iso won't install on the B560, will there be an "update" with version 7.9.1, or the 7.x version won't get the B560 support?
    Because, eventually, support for the B560 should come, or not?

    What do you think?

    Did you maybe ask the Clearcenter team regarding the ClearOS 7.9 iso? Maybe an approximate time? 1-2 weeks or more?
    I can't advise on the B560. It could be an expensive mistake or it could be fine.

    With respect to the iso, I am working on it but we are struggling with a space issue.

    No you don't understand correctly.
    If you install 7.7 in another machine then transplant the disk immediately, it is the same as installing on the B560.
    If you install 7.7 on another machine then perform a full update, it will update itself to 7.9. It may work on the B560.
    If you install 7.7 on another machine then install an Elrepo Kernel then transfer the disk to the B560, it will then have the latest available kernel and, from that perspective, should work but there are other issues that could go wrong with transferring a disk, and it is essential that you boot from either BIOS or UEFI on both machined and not one on one and the other on the other.

    Without knowing the PCI IDS or the NIC type, I can't say if ClearOS has the drivers. If it needs the r8125 driver you will need to get it from Elrepo again. Once you have ClearOS installed "lspci -knn | grep Eth -A 3" should identify it.

    Do I understand this correctly. If I install ClearOS 7.7 in another machine and then transplant the disk into the B560 machine it would definitely work? Or there is still a 50:50 chance?

    On more thing. The ASRock B560 Steel Legend and the Gigabyte B560M AORUS ELITE both have 2.5 Gbit Realtek LAN.
    Do you know if the kernel in 7.7 or 7.9 include this driver?

    Note I've never stated whether 7.7 or 7.9 support the B560 chip. I don't know and I can't find any sensible links. Almost certainly 7.9 would work if you could install an ElRepo kernel into it. It may work with the stock kernel. The issue would be getting you to an installation with the ElRepo kernel. It may mean loading ClearOS onto another machine then transplanting the disk, or it may work out of the box.

    For example ASRock B560 Pro4.
    I only found this on Linux in the manual:

    Legacy USB Support
    Enable or disable Legacy OS Support for USB 2.0 devices. If you encounter USB
    compatibility issues it is recommended to disable legacy USB support. Select UEFI
    Setup Only to support USB devices under the UEFI setup and Windows/Linux
    operating systems only.

    Also the same for the ASRock B560 Steel Legend.

    Here are also some other motherboards that I'm considering: ASUS PRIME B560-PLUS, Gigabyte B560M AORUS ELITE, Gigabyte B560M D3H, Gigabyte B560 HD3

    For Gigabyte B560M D3H and B560 HD3 I found this:
    Due to different Linux support condition provided by chipset vendors, please download Linux driver from chipset vendors' website or 3rd party website.

    So, even the 7.9 version lacks support for the B560 chipset?
    Is there a 7.9.1 version in the works with B560 support? :)
    Or 8.0 with support of the old bandwidth manager? :) Yes, I know, wishful thinking :)

    Yes it is possible. What is the exact m/b? You could try googling that instead.
    I tried building the 7.9 iso this morning but hit a couple of glitches so I don't know when it will be out. I've had to ask the Clearcenter team for help. Note that a 7.9 iso is not necessarily the panacea.

    So, if I buy the new B560 motherboard it could happen, that I won't be able to install ClearOS?
    Do you maybe know, when will the installation disk/iso for the ClearOS 7.9 be available?

    I can't find any useful information on it. Normally you can search for strings like "b560 centos", "b560 el7" and so on but I am not getting any sensible hits. Note that ClearOS is compatible with the Elrepo kernels and they are bleedin' edge so at least they should work. The issue may then be how to install ClearOS in the first place to be able to update the kernel. Also the current installation disk for ClearOS is 7.7. We have not yet produced one for 7.9.
