Description cavanaug 1999-03-23 18:22:50 EST
Scenario:

rawhide-1.3 bootable cdrom
redhat-5.2 bootable cdrom
machine with 5 ide drives & 2 promise ide controller cards +
one on board controller.


While attempting an installation of rawhide 1.3 I was unable
to get past the fdisk/disk druid area due to errors.  I then
tried it with redhat-5.2 and was unsuccessful (I cant
remember the exact reasons)  Ultimately I got the box
working by removing both cards and installing the os.  Then
readded the cards and rebooted.

This might be something more for the release notes than a
search for a solution because it was easy to workaround the
problem once I figured out how to do it.

I need very verbose messages.  What problems are you seeing?
Comment 2 cavanaug 1999-04-19 21:28:59 EDT
I wont be able to give very detailed messages as I did a workaround
and the machine is now running in our data center.

My guess is that if you can run the install ok and get past disk druid
on a system with 2 promise controllers then its safe to close it.
Sorry I cant help more.

This looks old.
