Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22429
DAC960 driver doesn't recognise partition numbers >7 (installer)
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
We are trying to run RedHat 6.2 on some servers with a Mylex DAC960 RAID
controller (RedHat 7 has been deemed too experimental), and in booting from
the bootdisks, we noted that the RAID driver wouldn't recognise partition
numbers greater than 7, hence crippling us to 4 partitions in the install,
and asking operators to fdisk, edit fstabs, mount, remount, create
temporarymounting points, etc, is a procedural nightmare.
This bug isn't actually as much with the bootdisks/installer as it is with
the kernel - the bug has definitely been fixed in 2.2.17.
Could you please issue new bootdisks to rectify this problem? Thankyou very
My bad, this has been reported before.
This sucks just a bit, though.
