Description Rob Starkey 2004-05-19 17:52:03 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5)

Description of problem:
Compaq/HP DL360
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot FC2 install CD

Posted a final version of that to linux-kernel and the maintainer
Comment 5 Mike Cotton 2004-09-16 19:09:30 EDT

I am expereincing this same issue, do I need to create a new iso with 
the updated kernel?  


Comment 6 Alan Cox 2004-09-16 19:31:21 EDT
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.
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2004-11-02 23:43:39 EST
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)
