Can anyone pls tell me if a ThinkServer TS130 with a E3-1225 Xeon
processor is compatible with CentOS 6.0? I would like to
5.6 but my hardware will not allow me to do so.

L3 Cache 6 MB

* Virtualization Technology
* Trusted Execution Technology
* Extended Memory 64 Technology
Seems OK, what specific problems are you having ?
Sorry, I meant the hardware I have now is preventing me from upgrading to
I just want to make sure CentOS 6.0 would have the necessary drivers for
on board video, ethernet, etc., for the TS130 before I make the purchase.
Not absolutely sure about this, but I think E3-series is very close to 2nd
A while ago I installed CentOS 6.0 to Acer 7550 laptop that uses integrated
Intel HD Graphics of i5 CPU.
All I got with 6.0 kernels was vesa 1024x768 resolution. I found out 6.1
shoud fix this. Since CentOS 6.1 wasn't out then, I installed kernel from
Scientific Linux 6.1 (another RHEL clone) and theafter I got very nice
graphics -and high-resolution console also in runlevel 3 to my CentOS 6
So, I would say 6.0 doesn't support Intel graphics of that CPU, but 6.1
should do it. Don't know about network etc, but at least it fixes the
graphics -I guess that server uses integrated graphics since they've chosen
a CPU that has it.
