Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128482
dpt_i2o modules/driver is not included in RHEL AS v3 x86_64 installation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:03 EST
Description of problem:
My adaptec 2015S raid controller is not recognised during
installation of RHEL AS v3, and the installation cannot continue
because It cannot see my disks. Fedore core 1 and RH9 install without
a problem because they contain the driver dpt_i2o. I tried the newest
iso image (update 2) and the first v3 iso image for the x86_64
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, and on my two server with adaptec 2015S raid controller.
Controller is not defective, because Fedore and RH9 install fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL AS v3 (x86_64) on opteron system with Adaoptec 2015S
2. It will give warning about no drives found to install, when
selecting add drivers, the dpt_i2o driver is not in list.
Unable to install RHEL AS v3 my Opteron server.
Able to install RHEL As v3, just as I installed Fedora core 1 and
I tried to boot with "linux expert" but still could not load the
dpt_i2o. I did alt-F2 and at the shell prompt, checked the
anaconda.log, dpt_i2o was not loaded. I checked the module directory
and in the file module-info there is no reference to the dpt-i2o
The driver isn't 64-bit clean from what I remember.
Don, this is a RHEL3 feature request.
Internal RFE bug #154237 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Based on a technical assessment, this driver is not suitable for inclusion in a
64-bit version of RHEL3. Removing from U6 consideration.
