Installer does not detect IDE drive on Promise RAID controller
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
Installer does not detect IDE drive on Promise PDC20378 RAID controller (in IDE
mode) on ASUS A8V Deluxe m/board
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 7 Test 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the installation.
Additional info: FC6 install detects the disc fine (Similarly ok with Ubuntu
6.10, OpenSuse 10.2)
Not sure if this is anaconda ( not having the right drivers in ) or kernel just
not working. Assigning to anaconda for now.
Can you try again with test2 in a few days and see if it works better?
Moving to 'devel' as discussed on
Ok, in FC7 test 2 the drive is now detected as sda. One strange thing though is
that the other two ide drives on the 'normal' ide interface (not the promise
controller) are labelled sdb and sdc, whereas previous Fedora installations
recognized them as hda and hdb.
This is expected -- with Fedora 7, we're moving to the libata based drivers for
all IDE devices. This means that all access will go through the SCSI layer.
Wow, that's gonna cause a lot of confusion, isn't it?
