Description Michael J. McGillick 2000-08-15 19:28:45 UTC
I have an HP Netserver LH3.  The machine comes with 2 internal Symbios 
SCSI controllers.  The installer with this version, as well as every 
previous version of Red Hat detects this controller as an ncr3c5xx 
controller instead of the correct sym3c5xx controller.

Does the ncr driver not work?

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2000-08-18 13:24:55 UTC
Our kernel group has tested the driver with the same hardware and it works for
us.  We really need to understand if the ncr driver is simply NOT working for
you... if the driver does not work on your hardware, then indeed this is a bug;
we would really appreciate an answer to this question soon.  I/we apologize for
rushing this answer but we're running out of time to fix this in the current
release and need more information if we are to proceed with this.

He mentioned (out of bugzilla) that the ncr driver
does work for him, but it is not the prefereed driver.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-18 15:24:38 UTC
Matt, you want to put this module on the boot disks and
I'll add the appropriate stuff to pcitable?
