Description mike jaskowiak 2006-04-29 00:40:43 UTC
Description of problem: Gigabyte GA-2cewH server board bios maps the pci-x 
bridges/bus numbers to 0x40,41,42. They are not detected after instilation 
ergardless of type of cards in them, ie storage,nic. The lspci and proc pci 
dir util only lists up to bus 4.  

The admin guide refered to us the device command to pass the module name to 
anaconda in the kickstart but it did not detail the options switch, only 
listing some base io addresses. It also refered to passing these parms to the 
kernel (thru device >> anaconda??). I also saw this in the manual cd install 
but don't remember the man page and component it refered to in user/doc/...

Sooo, how do you force anaconda to scan ALL pci bus numbers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat EL AS 2 update 2 with online updates.

How reproducible:always on that motherboard

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RH EL AS4 u2 with / without cards in the PCI-X slots ON THAT 
MOTHERBOARD.  (no bios update or response yet from Gigabyte)
2.Aften install check lspci or proc pci and observe the pci-x slots are not 
Actual results:

Expected results:
