Hello @tazzydemon and a very belated ‘Welcome to the Rockstor forum’.
I had a quick search for your reported error and came up with a kernel bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91629
which has apparently been fixed in later kernels but the Rockstor / CentOS installers both use older kernels anyway so not sure what’s going on there. There will hopefully be an updated installer (probably based on CentOS 7.3) available in the future but I don’t know when, we had to back out of that plan with the latest Rockstor iso release as it was all a bit too last minute but we do have an issue open in the rockstor-iso repo:
So maybe there has been some backports or the like that address this.
You could try installing a generic CentOS 7.3 and see how it goes, might be useful info on that issue.
I have an ASrock N3700 ITX here as one of my Rockstor machines, but I have only tried it in BIOS/MBR mode. I intend to use it in some future GPT/UEFI tests but alas haven’t yet gotten around to this. My BIOS/MBR install was without issue but that was a little while ago, ie no network issue for me.
There is another thread on the forum where I report details of the network card built into my board, it’s presumably the same as the one in yours:
I had no network issue here during or after install but again this was with BIOS boot install only.
That machine is now running 3.8.16-8 and all appears to be OK still. I’ll try and report back here once I get around to my UEFI tests. My bios version for this board is currently:
dmidecode -t bios | grep "Vendor\|Version\|Release"
Vendor: American Megatrends Inc.
Release Date: 08/19/2015
So CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1611.iso installs fine on my N3700 box in UEFI mode. It even offers BTRFS which was a surprise.
Now I am installing Rockstor on my windows Virtualbox so I can try to roll my own. I wish I didnt have to! All I have done with this in the last year is fiddle with it (partly because of me and partly because of the way I want to mirror its storage to the cloud - something I have not yet really sorted)
And now I will need another rego code. Drat.
My python build script fails… so more work needed from me…
@tazzydemon For the time being you may be better off just installing using the 3.8.15 iso, picking your update channel and updating: ie as per my recent post with another forum report of installer difficulties related to our 3.8.16 iso:
I have linked back to this thread in the indicated issue to build a list of relevant installer issue reports.
