Description Rajarshi Das 2004-09-09 07:33:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1)

Description of problem:
While installing RHEL4 Beta1 (RHEL4-re0827.3) on a p630 box from the
cdrom, the sym553c8xx driver loads fine. Then a message shows up
indicating that the driver was not found. The available list of
drivers doesnot contain the ide cdrom driver for p630. Also, because a
p630 doesnt have a floppy drive, a cdrom is needed to provide the
driver image. 

Apart from the above, is there a procedure to burn a ide-cdrom driver
(.o) into a .img file, the way the installer expects ?


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert Bootable CDROM of RHEL4 beta1 into p630.
2.choose 'install from CDROM'


Actual Results:  the message shows up indicating that the driver is
not found.

Expected Results:  The driver should have been loaded and the
installer should have continued

Does it work post-install?  If so, what modules are loaded
post-install?  Can you provide the dmesg for the box?
