Just tried out the new boot.img posted on gribble today, it
failed to load the aic7xxx.o.

tty4 shows
* in loadDeviceDriver, ks = 0, typName = SCSI
* pci probing for scsi devices
* pci probe found 1 scsi devices
* found driver for Adaptec 2740, 2840, 2940
* running /bin/insmod /bin/insmod /modules/aic7xxx.o
* insmod failed!
* /proc/scsi/scsi: Attached devices: none
tty5 shows

Forgot to mention the Adaptec 2940 PCI SCSI3UW/SCSI2 card in my system
conf list.

Comment 2 Jeremiah Johnson 1999-02-25 20:11:59 UTC
Ok, I just verified that I am using the " updated " boot.img. I
re-downloaded the image from /pub/testing/i386/images *AND*
/pub/updates/redhat-5.8.X/i386/images. I did a " sum " on both of
these files, and they both produced the same output of "17424 1440". I
then did a "sum" of the boot.img from the 5.8.1 cdrom, and got this as
a output "08484 1440". After doing this, I tried to install with the
"updated" image. It seems the module is for kernel version 2.2.1-4,
and the kernel that the bootdisk is loading is kernel version 2.2.1-6.
I also noticed this on TTY4
" <6> Install uses obsolete /proc/pci interface " and,
" <3> kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprob -s -k nls_iso8859-1, errno =
2 "
