I have the Abit IP35 Pro and it seems to work nice with my 2.6.22 kernel and Kanotix Thorshammer/Debian 4.0.
Ubuntu 7.10 and SAM Linux 07 LiveCD also work, i will install and test SAM the next time and tell you if it work.
booting with the live-cd sidux 2007-04 eros it works out of the box. no problem with nic, sound, grafik. After installing on the harddisc i got the message: their are no harddisc found, try it with irqpoll at bootline of grub. so i started with cheatcode "irqpoll" and now the box run very fine. no problems. sidux is genial.
anybody get ip35-e to run without any kernel/boot parameters when using both sata hdd and pata dvd-writer? I am currently using ubuntu 7.10 amd64.
has anybody had any success with another distro or a custom kernel?
fyi I have tried a variety of different boots, including only my primary hdd which is a samsung sp1204c sata 1 (not sata 2) and I could not boot, I keep getting a failed to contact ata device (--> indicates that sata is turned on to ide, but cannot change that in bios) and an error on irq19
