Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 162431
Advansys cards missing from pcitable
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:20:43 EST
Description of problem:
The Fedora Core 4 installer does not autodetect Advansys SCSI cards in a system,
despite the advansys.ko kernel module being included in the installer initrd. I
believe that this is due to the absence of any data regarding the Advansys
controllers in pcitable. The following entries were present in hwdata on Red Hat
Linux 9, which did not have this problem:
0x10cd 0x1200 "advansys" "Advanced System Products|ASC1200 [(abp940) Fast
0x10cd 0x1300 "advansys" "Advanced System Products|ABP940-U / ABP960-U"
0x10cd 0x2300 "advansys" "Advanced System Products|ABP940-UW"
0x10cd 0x2500 "advansys" "Advanced System Products|ABP940-U2W"
I don't know if data in the modules.pcimap file is also necessary for
autodetection or not.
I'm working around this by using a driver disk for FC4 but it would be nice if
FC5 "just worked".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try installing FC4 on a system based on an Advansys SCSI card.
No SCSI card or attached hard drives detected.
I get to see disk druid.
It's always "fun" installing Fedora on my Advansys-based file/print server. See
http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/drivers/advansys/ for more references.
At this point, PCI ids really should be in the driver itself (and therefore
Done for FC5. Fix already in rawhide.
