Comment 1 Tom 2004-02-27 13:58:14 EST
Just wanted to update and let you know that I have abandoned trying to
use my dpt_i2o card with RHAS. I had previously tried using it with
RH9 and created a bug report for that as well.

Since I had another raid card (megaraid) present, I just used that.

I would be more than willing to ship my card to someone at redhat if
that would help facilitate this being resolved.

If anyone would like to take my up on that offer, please email me.

Since this is a very old bug report that may very well have been fixed in the
later RHEL3 updates, I'm closing this one out.
Comment 3 Ernie Petrides 2005-10-17 19:18:04 EDT
I have no record of a relevant fix in any RHEL3 update.

Changing disposition to WONTFIX.
