Description Rob Landry 2005-08-23 11:48:12 EDT
+++ This feature was initially created as a clone of Feature #166578 +++

--- This is the x86 version of it ---

$summary, data points...

IBM provides aacraid 1.1-5[2386] on... 


...adaptec makes version 1.1.2 available @...


...which includes patch...


...which adds support for the 8i.

Upstream kernels... 2.6.12 includes 1.1.2; though missing the 8i lite (usually
means minus battery) PCI ID (not certain what else) and 2.4.31 includes what
appears to be a rewrite however it's missing 8i support all together.

Separeately, U7 wasn't an option and I don't know what "(areca(" is in the
Category, so these may need to be reset  in this issue if those are incorrect.

Converting from Featurezilla to Bugzilla.

I've de-cloned this after changing the "hardware" fields.

The aacraid driver update has just been committed to the RHEL3 U7
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-37.10.EL).
