Description mike.radomski 2000-05-28 16:51:36 UTC
I have a Alpha PWS 600au with an onboard Qlogic isp1020 controller and a
pci Qlogic isp1020 controller.  The redhat version 6.1 and 6.2 boot images
do not detect the onboard controller.  Previously I had redhat 6.0
installed on the system.  I installed it using the boot images found at
ftp://ftp.digital.com/pub/DEC/Linux-Alpha/Images.  The 2.2.12 kernel on
that disk is able to recognize both controllers.  I am able to install
redhat 6.2 from that disk.  However when rebooting after the  install, the
stock kernel (2.2.14-6.0) that comes with redhat 6.2 does not boot.
Actually it boots but cannot mount the root fs because it has not
recognized the onboard scsi card.

This all occurs even if I remove the pci qlogic controller.

I did not see am updated boot.img from ftp://updates.redhat.com

Thank you..

I have tried the RawHide kernel update 2.2.14-100 and it still does not detect 
the onboard scsi adaptor.  I upgraded to the 2.2.15 kernel.  It detected both 
scsi adaptors but I then got a keyboard timeout [2] error.  But the scsi 
adaptors were detected just fine.  Is there a fix the the keyboard timeout [2] 
problem.  I searched the newsgroups and found a few people with that problem 
but no answer to it.

I am unable to reproduce this problem in our test lab using 6.2 ...

I just upgraded the the 2.2.16-3 kernel and both cards show up fine.
