I20 driver failure on Adaptec IDE 1200 RAID Card after 2.6.15
Last modified: 2008-05-06 15:24:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora Core 5 vanilla kernel 2.6.15 allows use of i2o driver to control
Adaptec 1200 series IDE RAID Card (using BIOS version 1.62 as of 11/6/02 --
last BIOS update they have). Upon installation of newest core 2.6.20-
1.2307.fc5, the i2o driver fails to work correctly.
Error provided upon rebooting to new Kernel load is "Buffer I/O on device
i20/hda logical block 0". It then fails to load any of the RAID or drives or
allow access. Fedora Core 6 is worse in that the i2o driver will not even
recognize the RAID array.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.15 original to upgrade to 2.6.20-1.2307.fc5
upgrade kernel with this hardware device and error is duplicatable each time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use FC5 2.6.15 and setup Card using i2o driver
2. Create partition and file
3. Upgrade to newest kernal and reboot -- RAID card i2o will fail
I have tested with fc5 kernel 188.8.131.52.1.22.57.fc5 and the i2o driver still
works correctly. On kernel's 184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11 the i2o driver fails to load
the RAID correctly and the kernel fails.
