Description Friedrich Clausen 2000-09-12 11:05:05 EDT

The eata-dma driver that comes with Red Hat 6.2 does not seem to work. I
tried it on  variety of machines and they all stopped with "Install exited
abnormally". On console 3 there was :

*going to insmod fat.o (path is NULL)
*going to insmod vfat.o (path is NULL)
*probing buses
*finished bus probing
*found nothing
*no install methods have the required devices!

And console 4 :

<7>VFS: Disk change detected on fd(2, 0)

<4>[MS-DOS FS Rel. 12, FAT 0, check=r,conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=022,bmap]
<4>Transaction block size=512
<4>VFS: Can't find valid msdos fiesystem on 02:00

Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Regards, Fred

Could you attach the output of the "lspci" command to this bug report?  Thanks.

Here is the lspci output :

I tried it on many machines but this is the most common one. If you need
anything else please ask.
Thanks, Fred.

I am not seeing the scsi card in this lspci output, does this machine have a dpt
scsi card (which is what the eata-dma driver is for) in it?
