We want to be sure that Ubuntu is fully compatible with the new Intel Core 2 Duo Processors.

This is a page to track bugs and discussions related to supporting this.


Installer Freezes on Not Finding IDE CD/DVD-ROM Drive

I believe this is caused due to the Intel P965 chipset has no more integrated IDE channel, thus the motherboard usually has an additional chip onboard for an IDE channel. In the current Gigabyte (I got one of them) and ASUS (think they have it too) this is a JMicron JMB363. Until very recently the kernel had a bug inside that made it unable to access the IDE/PATA channel. So If you have and IDE drive or HDD left you will not be able to use it.

Fixed in Edgy Status/Notes

I tried Kubuntu Knot 2 tonight with no luck. It got to the start screen, and hit install and it freezes to a blank screen with a blinking cursor at the top left of the screen.


  • [ Has Anyone tried an IDE to SATA converter like this one?]

  • USB enclosure for ATA drives
  • Network(PXE) installation
    • -- this requires another computer -- Many of the P965 mobos apparently use some Realtek Ethernet cards that aren't supported by the installer
      • workaround: get another PCI Ethernet card to install from
      • potential workaround (not tested): local network install
  • PCI/ATA controller card. I'm using a CMD649U chipset based card. Although I can't seem to boot off the CD, isolinux brings up an error.
