Description Need Real Name 2000-11-22 11:41:49 UTC
Hi all -- I have a vexing problem that is preventing me from accessing my
CD-ROM drive and tape backup.  I recently changed hardware from an Intel
Pentium III system to an Athlon 1.1Ghz system.  I put my old hard drive
into the new system and added my adaptec AHA-2940AU card.  The BIOS boot
clearly recongnizes both the adaptec card and the two peripherals attached
to it.  But the Linux boot says no SCSI hosts detected. On the old system
it worked fine and I have didn't change a thing.  Everything else works the
same.  Does anyone know the problem and how I might get the scsi card

I am using a system based on RedHat 6.0, and my kernel is 2.2.5-15.

I also installed RedHat 7.0 from the net on another partition, it also
failed to detect the SCSI card.  ...?

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
