I have a Sun V65X which I believe has an internal Adeptec AIC7902 H/W Raid Controller. I have installed Ubuntu 11.10, and the symptom is that the system goes through the h/w checks, post, and then hangs (presents a black screen) when it should be hitting the boot loader or OS Boot strap.
The recipe for installing RedHat on this box (one of the original supported operating systems), was to perform some post-installation process of getting the driver installed and making a command line change in the kernel line in grub.conf. /etc/modules.conf was also updated, I believe.
Its been a while, so my memory is a bit weak on the details.
I want to get Ubuntu running on this box and would appreciate any tips on this procedure.
