      You can get around the Intel video driver problem by forcing X to use the vesa
      Either modify your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to include:
      Section “Device”
      Identifier “Videocard0”
      Driver “vesa”

      Or add the kernel boot parameter xdriver=vesa

      I get the same problems (Intel video and FC10 boot failure) on my Toshiba L10.
      To run the latest kernel(s) I have to overwrite the initrd with the one from
      kernel 2.6.27-0.392.rc8.git7.fc10.

      I have dir till X11 however I donot even have xorg.conf in that dir…

    2. First of all, if you really need RHEL 6, then you really need RHEL subscription, because RHEL is not usable without subscription! But if you want “Free RHEL” then use CentOS 6, which is same linux with different branding…

      If you want to try boot with xdriver=vesa boot option then do following:
      1. Access Grub boot menu
      2. Press “e” (edit)
      3. Select kernel line and press “e” (edit) again
      4. Add xdriver=vesa at the end of line
      5. Press Enter
      6. Press “b” (boot) to boot with modified kernel line

      xorg.conf is missing because it’s normally generated on the fly, but you can of course create xorg.conf manually and use it instead if you want.

    3. 4 step that is installation media is not appeared.
      ir ask for load driver manually or enter disk driver list.
      i have 3 cd of red hat 9. can someone help me

      • Hi jagvir,

        So you have Red Hat 9 CDs? Red Hat 9 was released on 2003, so it’s very very old, because it wasn’t Enterprise Linux at all…I suggest you to try Fedora 16 or newer RHEL 6 or CentOS 6…

    4. Does Red Hat 6 support i5 2nd generation processor well?
      Does GUI problem appear with Red hat 6 in i5 2nd generation processor?

      • Hi Uzumaki,

        Yes, it should support your processor. What you mean with GUI problem?

    5. Graphical User Interface

      • Yes, I definitely know what GUI means, but I try to figure out, what you meant with GUI problem?

      • Processor is not normally reason for any Gnome problems.

      Same issue as Zafrul and gagan mallik. “No usable disk have been found”. Trying to install RHEL 6 on VMWare. After the language selection I get this error. Hard Disk Space 25 GB, Type SCSI 0:0. Any suggestions whats wrong. Oh tried to change the type of the HDD but can only chose a different type of SCSI.
