Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186433
Install will fail with sata_nv
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:39:04 EST
If I start the install with linux noprobe and choose not to select sata_nv it
will install fine. But then I can't install my software raid on my sata drives
This freezes everytime. I even tried it with the i386 version with the same
sata_nv worked with fc5t2. Failed on fc5t3.
If I boot the install (without selecting noprobe) it will fail right before
the gui comes up (mouse x is veiwable a movable) and locks. On fc5t3 it booted
to the point where you selected your keyboard and the locked.

If I do a ctrl-alt-f4 this is what I get:
Program anaconda is using a depreciated SCSI ioctl, please convert it to SG_IO.
Is anyone looking at this? Can Someone guide me into a patch for this? For
example, is it possible to do a linux noprobe and add sata_nv drivers from
somewhere else that work. Like from the FC5t2 disc? Someones help here is
Installing on sata_nv works fine on FC5 for me (and presumably others). You
likely need to provide more info on your hardware setup (like what motherboard,
It is an ECS motherboard Nforce4-N939
bios 1.1f 02/10/2006
All of the latest versions of SUSE 10.1 work fine. I have gone through the
Fedora forums extensively and there are several other people expeiencing Nvidia
Does it help at all that the place the anaconda freezes is slightly different
from FC5t3 to your last FC5 release? Please let me know what other info I can
provide. I appreciate your help.
