why it’s so complicated… i installed opensuse 15.2 but nothing about rockstor only normal os. can you share how to install (where to find the download) why to keep it like a big secret … make it simple for normal or new user
@mrbuzz_Patrice. as you can see from @phillxnet’s postings on the forum, the transition to OpenSUSE is not quite complete yet, as the current versions are all release candidates/for beta testing towards the final image that will allow you to install the 4.x version of Rockstor and mark the transition from a CentOS based solution to OpenSUSE.
Since the testing requires some more advanced technical knowledge and the development team is very small, creating interim rpms at this time is probably too time intense, since nobody is a full-time developer on this distribution.
So, I’m asking for some more patience, until the function parity is achieved and the team can finally roll out an “installable” release.
To follow up, when you installed just LEAP15.2 were you able to make use of the 10G NIC you mentioned in your post title?
I use two Intel EXPX9501AFXSR NICs for my NAS & Backup setups and they work fine. They spec a PCIe-2.0 X8 slot though they run PCIe 1.0.speed. ($55-$90 used on ebay) On my new WS setup, I use the TP-Link 10GB PCIe Network Card (TX401)-PCIe CAT6A ($100)
I hook up with a Qnap QSW-308S-US switch that has 3 SFP+ 10Gbps slots ( I use 2 Fiber and 1 CAT6A copper GTek modules) and eight 1Gbps RJ45 slots. ($150 on Newegg)
PS: No issues with drivers! Rockstor 3.9 and 4.1 releases.recognized both the Intel & TP-Link NICs!
Any more info on this being supported? I just installed 15.3 on a clean system (not an upgrade) and it does not recognize the ASUS XG-C100C NIC (the NIC does show up in the bios boot menu). I’ve looked through the posts about building the driver but the commands to check and build are not even present in OpenSUSE Leap (5.3.18-59.40-default - Stable release) so doesn’t seem to be an option.
