Description Bill Ralph 2004-05-20 12:31:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040116 Description of problem: While attempting an installation/upgrade of a FC1 system to FC2, the installer cannot find the SCSI driver even though I manually load it: "mpiscsih". The message is: "An error has occurred - no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem." Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Insert FC2 CD #1. 2.Reboot. 3. Actual Results: "An error has occurred - no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem." Clicking OK on the box causes a reboot. Expected Results: Either the disk should have been auto-partitioned or the user presented with Disk Druid to manually do it.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-20 14:00:04 EDT
If you switch to tty2 at that point and run lsmod, can you verify that mptscsih is loaded? Can you also run the list-harddrives command?
Comment 2 Bill Ralph 2004-05-20 15:03:39 EDT
Switching to tty2, lsmod tells me that both mptbase and mptscsih were loaded. list-harddrives returns nothing but the prompt.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-20 15:06:28 EDT
Are there any disks listed in /proc/scsi/scsi?
Comment 4 Bill Ralph 2004-05-21 14:49:19 EDT
No.: Attached Devices:

Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel updates for security problems only. If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the product version accordingly. Thank you.
