Description of problem:
I tried to use the driver provided by Intel, also the driver provided by Adaptec, but with both I have the same problem. Installation hangs after partition creation, and looking at the virtual 5 I founded a message "writing inode tables 24/200", or anything else.
Looking a lot about related documentation, I founded it only running well on RedHat 8, but is not possible to use it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.take a SE7501WV2 with Adaptec hostraid enable
2.create a RAID 1 with a pair os disks
3.try to install RedHat 3 with the drivers from Intel or Adaptec
Actual Results: Hangs on "writing inode table"
Expected Results: Installation occurs
I tried to update the BIOS version to the last, P39, but then i turned back to P34.
We can not provide support for drivers that do not ship with RHEL 3.
We also can not support closed-source drivers.
Does the install work with host raid disabled, and the drivers that ship with
Is the driver provided by Intel/Adaptec open source?
With host raid disabled, the installation runs well.
The driver provided by Intel?Adaptec is not open source...
We decided to upgrade the hardware, adding a PCI 29320-R controller.
Now, itÂ´s ok.
Thanks a lot for your help.
