Description Lars Herrmann 2003-07-28 10:54:53 EDT
Install on FSC Siemens L200/P200 with Mylex Raid Controllers fails, because
kernel-BOOT does not recognize the controller. No module DAC960 included and
also pcitable does not include any DAC reference.

Comment 5 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2003-07-30 04:55:10 EDT
additional note: examination of the kernel-source RPM shows that the dac960 module was moved 
to unsupported.

Two questions:
  - can we get it back into supported (we're willing to test here of course)?
  - should CD1/images not include an image with unsupported modules?


Comment 6 Tim Burke 2003-07-30 08:21:40 EDT
Currently, the impediment to getting the megaraid driver onto the supported list
is the fact that development does not have any such hardware.  If we had at
least 1 to test with (within a week or 2) then we could probably get it added
back onto the supported list.  

Any efforts to secure an adapter would be appreciated.
Comment 8 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2003-07-30 12:09:56 EDT

I guess you meant to say dac960 and not megaraid.

A few things we can do:
  - we bug FSC for such a controller (from what I head we have pretty good chances for this)
  - we get FSC to run the tests
  - we run tests here (I'm on-site until Friday and willing to run all necessary tests)
  - generating driver disks for the unsupported modules

Lars, please comment on the chances of getting Tim such a controller within a week or 2.
