3. General Notes
----------------------------------------------------
o LKST
LKST function was excluded from the normal kernel. LKST built-in kernel is
located in Asianux/extra/kernel-lkst directory on the installation CD.
After installing the lkst kernel, reboot the system using that kernel.

o Asianux 2.0 Service Pack 3 does not support upgrading an already installed
system. It supports only new installations.

----------------------------------------------------
4. Restrictions/Known Bugs
----------------------------------------------------
o FTP installation shows an incorrect number of packages to be installed.
It always reports the actual number of packages + 1.

o When / partition is created on a software RAID partition, the installer
fails to write the bootloader
onto the MBR if the /boot partition does not exist. The user has to create
manually the /boot partition; it can be created on RAID.

o The Installer detects BCM5704 NIC as an `Unknown` device.
This problem is just a device detection problem of the installer. It
can still be configured by the DHCP client or given a static IP.
After the installation, the device will be detected correctly.

o The driver image on the installation CD inserted in a USB DVD drive
cannot be loaded.
To avoid this, boot the installation kernel with the following options:
linux driverload=usb-storage dd

o Neither USB Floppy devices nor USB CD devices will be mounted automatically
by KDE desktop.

o On x86-64 architecture, FireFox can not show webpages containing
Flash contents. To display them properly, the user has to use FireFox x86
version.
# rpm -e firefox nss nspr evolution28-atk evolution28-cairo \
evolution28-gtk2 evolution28-glib2 evolution28-pango

# rpm -ivh firefox-*.i386.rpm nss-xxx.i386.rpm nspr-*.i386.rpm \
evolution28-atk-*.i386.rpm evolution28-cairo-*.i386.rpm
evolution28-gtk2-*.i386.rpm evolution28-glib2-*.i386.rpm
evolution28-pango-*.i386.rpm flash-plugin-*.i386.rpm

o BCM5787 Gigabit Ethernet controller can not always get the IP address by
DHCP.
To avoid this problem, change the timeout value to more than 20 secs in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/network-functions.
ex)
while [ $timeout -le 40 ]; do

o Memory error detection function does not work with edac driver.
To avoid this, modify /etc/modprobe.conf as follows:
install *_edac /bin/true
install edac_* /bin/true
And reboot the system.

o In Asianux 2.0 Service Pack 3, the order in which NIC devices are probed
is different from Asianux 2.0 Service Pack 2. A device driver `e1000e` will
be loaded for a device which was called `e1000` driver on Asianux 2.0 Service
Pack 2.
This problem happens when the kernel has been upgraded from Asianux 2.0
Service Pack 2 kernel to Asianux 2.0 Service Pack 3 kernel.
The following NICs fall under this issue:
80003ES2LAN_COPPER_DPT
80003ES2LAN_COPPER_SPT
80003ES2LAN_SERDES_DPT
80003ES2LAN_SERDES_SPT
82571EB_COPPER
82571EB_FIBER
82571EB_QUAD_COPPER
82571EB_QUAD_COPPER_LP
82571EB_QUAD_FIBER
82571EB_SERDES
82571EB_SERDES_DUAL
82571EB_SERDES_QUAD
82571PT_QUAD_COPPER
82572EI
82572EI_COPPER
82572EI_FIBER
82572EI_SERDES
82573E
82573E_IAMT
82573L
ICH8_IFE
ICH8_IFE_G
ICH8_IFE_GT
ICH8_IGP_AMT
ICH8_IGP_C
ICH8_IGP_M
ICH8_IGP_M_AMT

When the kernel has been updated from Asianux 2.0 Service Pack 2 kernel
to Asianux 2.0 Service Pack 3 kernel and the system has a NIC which is in
the above list, modify /etc/modprobe.conf as follows:
alias eth0 e1000e
And reboot the system.

o netdump does not generate vmcore on X-Window system.

o XConfig does not work properly for the following graphic card:
`XGI Volari Z7/Z9`.
