Description of problem:
Installed FC2 on a system with a symbios (sym53c8xx driver) card.
Changed the card for an adaptec (aic7xxx driver).
On the next boot-up, kudzu correctly identifies the aic7xxx card, but
does not unconfigure the old card. This leads to a system with both
the removed and the new scsi card in /etc/modprobe.conf and only the
sym53c8xx driver loaded. After a reboot the aic7xxx driver is loaded.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change scsi cards
2. Boot system
I'm assuming that lspci does not show the symbios card any more.
Can you attach your current /etc/sysconfig/hwconf?
It doesn't show the symbios card anymore, but /etc/modprobe.conf still
has an entry for the sym53c8xx driver:
alias scsi_hostadapter sym53c8xx
alias scsi_hostadapter1 aic7xxx

reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
