No one seems to be paying attention any more to bug 10418, even though the
Adaptec AIC7xxx driver is still broken. I have emailed dledford and a
number of users have posted about this issue - the driver update disks
(yes, the newest ones - 5.1.31) still do not work correctly on many EISA
This makes it impossible to use RedHat on my HP NetServer 5/60 LM.

Attempts to install RedHat 6.2 on the above system results in
this: "kernel panic: aic7xxx: unrecoverable BRKADRINT
In swapper task - not syncing". Using driver disk (5.1.31) provided at
http://people.redhat.com/dledford/aic7xxx.html did not solve problem,
therefore bug 10418 should NOT be marked as RESOLVED!
It has been a month since I reported that the problem is not solved in the
comments, with about half a dozen other people reporting the same thing
after me. Until this is corrected, unfortunately I'm stuck with RedHat 6.0
or 6.1, which, by the way, work perfectly fine with my onboard adapter. It
has been 5 months since this bug was originally reported.
Please have someone look at this. It's critical because it prevents any
installation or operation of RedHat on my system until it's corrected.
Apparently this is a kernel related issue, reassigning.
