Even Scientific Linux has limitations

We strive for perfection. Any goal less than that is sortof silly. But we are also realistic. Not everything is going to be perfect. This page documents what we know is broken, or not living up to it's potential.

ipw2100, ipw2200, ipw3945

Wireless driver, firmware and deamon for the Intel ipw3945 wireless chipset
Limitation : Does not work in the installer.

ftp installs

Limitation : Currently, during an ftp install when it get's the the graphical section, there is a long pause (close to a minute) when it sits at a blank screen. It is NOT frozen, it is just searching for files that are not there. Give it a couple minutes and it will continue.

NVIDIA motherboard chipsets

Limitation : May need to use
linux noapic
to install.

Intel 965 motherboard chipset

Limitation : May need to use
linux all-generic-ide
if you have pata hardware (usually your cd-rom, or dvd drive)
