Description HECKEL E. 2004-04-15 16:26:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
During detection of scsi devices (cciss) installation hangs.
Trying with linux acpi=off works well for the detection of the card 
but says later that there are no hard drives available. Installation 
goes forward to language, keyboad, mouse,... then crashes when 
choosing partitionning and reboot.

Using another shell does not show any more help messages.
The /dev/cciss directory does not exist.
When I create the directory manually and then create the different 
devices with mknod, I was able to mount de hard drives and create 
partitions in the shell.

But even with this steps, if I return in the first shell, the 
installer simply crashes when I have to choose between disk druid and 
automatic partitionning.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with linux acpi=off (hangs on loading cciss if acpi=off not 
2. choose language, keyboard, mouse, install type, partionning
3. message : no hard drives detected, crash, auto reboot

Actual Results:  reboot

Expected Results:  partion the disks

I tried to install FC2 on a ProLiant DL380 G2 and I've got quite the 
same problems as described in this bug-entry. My problems come when I 
try to boot from the bootdisk. The loading of the megaraid-driver 
hangs. So I'm not able to install FC2 on a G2, but on a G3 it isn't a
