Description of problem:
BusLogic drivers are not being loaded during the intial install, nor
can I find them in the manual driver selection list after anaconda
informs me it cannot find a hard drive.

BTW, this install is under VMWare (which is where I do beta
testing/testing before production deployments, and I suspect is where
most of the BusLogic users come from).  I can select an LSI Logic
controller which 4as-beta1 does recognize, but you must select
advanced setup, and it's easy to miss.

Is this truly a bug, or was there a decision to drop the BusLogic
driver support?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a vmware profile, selecting the BusLogic controller (default)
2. Boot 4as-beta1 cd.


Actual Results:  Anaconda will not find the disk/controller, and will
ask to select from a list of drivers, which BusLogic is not a part of.

Expected Results:  Anaconda finds the disk automatically.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-09-29 16:49:11 UTC
the buslogic driver in 2.6 kernels is not maintained and is not of
sufficient quality to ship; the lsi logic controller is the recommened
controller for vmware.
