Description of problem:
Dual PIII 800mhz
4gigs of ram
Compaq hardware raid (cpqarray)
With the remote insight card installed, FC2's installer detects and
tries to load the megaraid driver making the system lockup/hang
requiring a power cycle.
The 'workaaround' is to boot with noprobe and select the modules by
hand but this is bad because it breaks kickstart and upgrades.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot FC2 install CD
Can you attach an lspci -vxx
Created attachment 100442 [details]
lspci -vxx output as requested.
Here ya go.
Something like this should fix it

Posted a final version of that to linux-kernel and the maintainer
I am expereincing this same issue, do I need to create a new iso with
the updated kernel?
If you can remove the compaq card you should be able to install,
upgrade to the kernel errata and then reinstall the card. That is
probably the easiest approach.
fixed in FC3, (and soon FC2 update).
Alan, this seems to still not be upstream as of 2.6.9 (havent checked 2.6.10rc)
