Last modified: 2010-07-14 13:34:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Three times whilst trying to install RHEL5 Beta 1 on a Supermicro H8DART system,
there were kernel oops messages relating to the sata_mv module and the machine
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This chipset wasn't detected at all when I tried installing RHEL4 U4.
Created attachment 135820 [details]
First oops image
Created attachment 135821 [details]
Second oops image
Created attachment 135822 [details]
Third oops image
Note that there is a second hard drive, but it is not detected at all.
During one of the installation attempts, the drive was detected but rejected as
an invalid device because the name was inconsistent, or something similar.
The chipset is a Marvell MV88SX6041 4-port SATA II PCI-X Controller (rew 03)

I don't currently have access to Beta 2, but I expect to have it very soon.
When I do, I will test it to see if this bug is still present.
Apologies but we no longer have time to address this issue in 5.0.
We will continue to investigate a resolution for 5.1.
This request was previously evaluated by Red Hat Product Management
for inclusion in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release, but
Red Hat was unable to resolve it in time. This request will be

There have been significant updates to the sata_mv driver since RHEL5, if
possible please test RHEL5.5. Thank you.
I am closing this bug report, please re-open if necessary.
