Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21446
Anaconda coping problem.
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:37:54 EDT
I first upgraded the RAID controller bios to 4.5.0.05 on my IBM Netfinity
I'm using a driverdisk (also 4.5.0.05) for my RAID controller at install
time (with the "linux dd" installation method, since the "expert"
installation method doesn't work !). Everything is working fine, untill
anaconda tries to copy the ips module, (at the end of the coping process)
which was also loaded by the driverdisk.
I'm trying to install from an IDE cdrom drive with the original RedHat
I'm desperate and need help,
Thanx in advance...
Here's the Anaconda bug report :

hmmm ... I was unable to reproduce this problem in our test lab, using an older
revision of firmware ... did it work properly for you with 7.0 using the older
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 18470 ***
It didn't work at all with any version of both firmware nor RedHat, the only
combination which worked was firmware version 4.5.0.05 and RedHat 7.0, without
using the driverdisk.
Anyway, I've installed everything, and it's running like a Harley Davidson on a
sunny day in California.
Thanks a lot for your time, and if you're still trying to hunt this down, I am
available for questions/comments.
