Description Daniel Senie 2001-07-07 16:21:38 UTC
Description of Problem: I need to install RedHat 7.0 on a system with a Mylex AcceleRAID 170. The kernel on the boot disk image for 7.0 does not support this card, since the version of the DAC960 driver in that kernel is too old. I need a procedure for building/booting systems with this card, since the older Mylex cards (the ones supported by the older driver) are no longer on the market. To do this, I need a driver disk, or a new boot disk. Can RedHat generate this for me? How about if I pay? How Reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Put Mylex AcceleRAID 170 into system 2. Attempt to install RedHat 7.0 3. Actual Results: Card not recognized. Expected Results: Successful installation. Additional Information: We're unable to move to RedHat 7.1 at this time due to stability concerns (i.e. the thing's just too new).

I guess the 6 month silence answers the question. Fortunately I have a good supply of spare, older AcceleRAID 150 and 250 cards to use while installing, and then switch to the 170 card after. I guess I'll mark this bug as closed, never to be fixed, 'cause RedHat doesn't give a damn. If anyone at RedHat decides they do want to fix it, they can mark it as back open, and make comments.
