Description Jeremiah Johnson 1999-02-21 20:00:48 EST
After formatting the swap partition when installing beta
5.8.1, addswap fails. TTY3 shows " setting up swapspace
version 0, device = sda5, size = 73990144 bytes " TTY4 shows
" <4>scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 1308,
scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 Write (10) 00 00 3d c6 3b 00
00 08 00 " after this message shows up, the install will
'reset' the scsi device forever. This machine was running
Redhat 5.2 prior to installation of the beta and had no
similar problems.
