Description Klaasjan Brand 2004-05-22 13:33:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

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):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change scsi cards
2. Boot system

I'm assuming that lspci does not show the symbios card any more.

Comment 2 Klaasjan Brand 2004-05-25 18:49:23 UTC
It doesn't.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-25 19:49:02 UTC
Can you attach your current /etc/sysconfig/hwconf?

Comment 4 Klaasjan Brand 2004-05-26 18:28:28 UTC
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

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
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.
