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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
This should work in test3
