Description of problem:
Running stock FC4 on a Dell Precision 650 2x3.06GGhz Xeon machine works
perfectly. Upgrading to kernel-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 causes the mptscsi controller
in the machine to be completely ignored at boot time. I see no driver load,
no scan results, nothing.
I have manually rebuilt the initrd image for the new kernel, and verified that
all the necessary modules are included (scsi, mptscsi, mptbase, etc).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: The machine crashed with no root filesystem available.
Expected Results: It should have seen the scsi drives, the lvm structs thereon, and booted.
