Description Ian Macdonald 2000-12-19 21:44:21 EST
Anaconda fails to properly detect when all drives in a Compaq Proliant
server are attached to the second SMART 3200 controller. The device file is
created with the correct name (/dev/ida/c1d0), but the block device file
has the wrong major number (72 instead of 73).

This can be fixed by patching the following file:

usr/local/src/rh-6-2.misc/src/anaconda/isys/devnodes.c

Change directory to misc/src/anaconda/isys and perform 'make _isys.so'.

Copy the resulting file to RedHat/instimage/usr/lib/anaconda/_isys.so,
after which all will be well.

Thank you for the fix - we have integrated this previously into our 7.0 release.
