Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make boot and driver floppies from the cdrom images files
2.install from floppy
3.specify scsi cdrom, driver from driver disk
Actual Results: Advansys driver not found
If you no longer support i486 and below, perhaps adaptec 152x and 1542
and other isa-only drivers can be dropped as well. The advansys driver
supports fast and ultra, narrow and wide, isa and pci. The cards are
oem'ed and show up under many other names, min happens to be SIIG.
This is because the driver is in kernel-unsupported.
Is this also the reason for the following install failure on FC2?
# rpm -iv kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2.i686.rpm
Preparing packages for installation...
No module advansys found for kernel 2.6.7-1.494.2.2, aborting.
BTW, it's not good that up2date claims to have successfully installed
this RPM on this machine. The errors do show up in the shell I
started it from, but not in the GUI.
Could you give my workaround a try?
I've only built this today (5 August 2004) and tried it on a couple of
machines but it's working for kernel 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 on the boxes I've
