this module isn't available for kernel 2.6.8-1.521 too.
(it has never been available for 2.6 kernels afaik).
Comment 2 Shawn Houston 2004-11-02 17:18:35 EST
The initio module is available and working in the FC3 kernel. I
compiled the FC3 kernel on FC2, and both the kernel and the module
work flawlessly with FC2. Kernel 2.6.9-1.649 SMP on a dual athlon box
with an INI-940 card.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2004-11-18 23:00:59 EST
reenabled in current errata kernel.
Comment 4 Shawn Houston 2004-11-20 18:18:33 EST
I upgraded to the latest errata kernel. 2.6.9-1.3-FC2, but had to
change back the the 667 FC3 kernel when my machine started locking up.
I suspect the initio fixes in the FC2 kernel are different than the
FC3 kernel. UP machines may not notice as it looks like my SMP machine
is triggering a locking bug. 2.6.9-667-FC3 is rock stable on this machine.
Comment 5 Shawn Houston 2004-11-23 10:41:31 EST
2.6.9-1.6-FC2 is rock stable on my SMP athlon with initio loaded.
