Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11790
AIC7xxxx panic kernel
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
AIC7xxxx panic kernel version 6.2 sends me when is trying to locate the
Adaptec SCSI driver.
The installation abort.
Version 6.0 was Ok!!!
See bugs 11610, 11729, 11790, 11797
did you have any success using doug ledford's latest driver disk (v 5.1.30)..?

Although there isn't much information in the bug report to go from, if the
problem is that you have either a 2842 VLB SCSI controller or a 2742 EISA SCSI
controller or a motherboard aic7770 based SCSI controller, then the 5.1.31
driver version on my web page does indeed solve that panic. If the problem is
something else then there is no way for me to help you without a more accurate
bug report that includes the hardware you have and the specific panic that is
being printed on the screen. You can use ALT-F4 to switch to the screen that
should show the panic.
Closed due to inactivity. Please re-open if problem persists.
This is likely related to this: http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=10418
Contact me. I have an HP NetServer 5/60 LM which exhibits pretty much the same problems with the same driver. RedHat versions up to
6.1 work fine on the machine. Thus, am willing to open up the machine for you to be able to verify and/or test resolutions.
I can install a fresh copy of RedHat 6.0 or 6.1 and give you telnet access or something. Just let me know what you'd like.
NOTE: the driver update disk 5.1.31 does *NOT* solve the problem on this aic7770 chip!
