Description Warren Togami 2004-10-22 05:19:26 EDT
Please add a descriptive phrase to the summary, and more in-depth
description here (be sure to note any arch-specific issues):

I2O SCSI RAID from manufacturers like Adaptec now uses the i2o_block
driver, rather than the dpt_i2o used in FC1 and earlier distributions.
 Beware that block devices used by i2o_block are now /dev/i2o/hd*
rather than /dev/sd* SCSI device nodes.  This may be problematic for
those upgrading from older distributions using dpt_i2o.  After an
upgrade to FC3, you may need to boot using a rescue disk and edit your
/etc/fstab to use the new device nodes.

layer, and Fedora specific notes.
Comment 1 Ed Bailey 2004-10-22 16:32:53 EDT
Warren -- here's what I added.  Unless I hear otherwise, I'll assume
that it's acceptable:

I2O SCSI RAID adapters from manufacturers such as Adaptec now use the
i2o_block driver, rather than the dpt_i2o driver used by Fedora Core 1
and earlier distributions.

Be aware that block devices used by the i2o_block driver are
/dev/i2o/hd* rather than the /dev/sd* SCSI devices. This may be
problematic for those upgrading from older distributions that used the
dpt_i2o driver. Therefore, after an upgrade to Fedora Core 3, you may
need to boot using a rescue disk and edit your /etc/fstab file to use
the new devices.

Core-specific notes, visit the I2O homepage:
