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)
*finished bus probing
*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.
Brock please verify.
reassigning these to email@example.com for further review ...
Could you attach the output of the "lspci" command to this bug report? Thanks.
Here is the lspci output :
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX - 82443BX/ZX Host bridge (rev
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX - 82443BX/ZX AGP bridge (rev 03)
00:02.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82371AB PIIX4 ISA (rev 02)

I tried it on many machines but this is the most common one. If you need
anything else please ask.
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?
Please reopen this report if you continue to have problems.
