Description of problem:
Fedora Core 2 2004.03.16 - gdth driver fails to recognize GDT8523RZ 
RAID controller.

Initially fails to detect RAID array, asks to add driver, after 
adding gdth - RAID array still don't appear, "no disks found", 

Tested the system with Windows 2003 Server and FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE -
 both worked and installed Ok.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't know

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create RAID5 array with ICP setup utility. Insert Installer CD and 
2. When installer fails to recognize array, go "Add driver" -> ICP 
3. No disks detected.

Actual Results:  Installation failed.

Expected Results:  Array recognized and ready for further 
installation steps (partitioning etc.).

Additional info:

Dual Xeon Supermicro ServerWorks-based motherboard, 6Gb of ECC DDR 
SDRAM, 6 UW160 SCSI disks in RAID5 array.

Also fails to recognize the ServerWorks chpset (says "Unrecognized 
ServerWorks chipset" during boot.

is there any way you can get the PCI ID's for the device in question ?
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:18:35 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
