If i want to install the actuall kernel-rpm with rpm -i --force
kernel-2.6.3-2.1.253.i686.rpm there comes the error message:
No module dc395x found for kernel 2.6.3-2.1.253, aborting.
Fehler: %post(kernel-2.6.3-2.1.253) scriptlet failed, exit status 0
Why --force? You must be trying to install it onto an old
distribution that is unsupported. It probably would not work because
modutils and initscripts would probably have trouble with it.
# CONFIG_SCSI_DC395x is not set
The latest FC development kernel has this module disabled. I am
guessing that it worked in 2.4.x kernel but it is either known to be
broken or completely untested in 2.6. I do not see much complaining
about it on LKML in the last 6 months, so its status is unknown to me.
You may want to ask upstream about its status.
this needs fixing upstream. it's been broken for some time, and it appears
no-one cares about fixing it.
