Description Jakob Menzi 2005-02-12 15:16:36 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading fedora core 2 to 3 the system wont boot, when I turn
on the attached SCSI HP Ultrium 1 Tape. The Tape is attached to a
EX-2212UW SCSI PCI Adapter which is based on the Symbios 53C875 chip set.
When I try to boot with a CD in rescue mode the system hangs also,
when the tape is turned on. Fedora Core 3 detects the Adapter correct
as a sym53c8xx based Adapter.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sym53c8xx_2/sym53c8xx.ko of 2.6.10-1.760_FC3

How reproducible:
Use EX-2212UW SCSI PCI Adapter or other Adapters that are based on
Symbios 53C875 Chip with Fedora Core 3 and attach a HP Ultrium 1 Tape.
Power on the tape and start the system.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
Actual results:
Fedora Core 3 kernel hangs in early stage.

Expected results:
See above

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
