When I use the DAC960 module with kernel-2.4.0-0.99.5, my system hangs
completely after a few seconds If I access the device. I have the same
problem at the installation of redhat rawhide that should support DAC960. I
am using a Mylex AcceleRAID 170 controller witch is running fine on
kernel-2.4.0 downloaded from kernel.org.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount a device on a various mount point
2. writing to that partition
1. Sometimes it is enaugh to make the filesystem on a raid device.
I wa trying to compile this kernel with the original version of the DAC960
driver distributed by dandelion.com. If i do so, I can't compile dhe DAC960
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before the next release.
This should be fixed -- there was a disagreement between the compiler
and the driver that we have now dealt with, so our next released
rawhide kernel should have that fix.
This is believed to be fixed in the latest Rawhide kernel.
If it isn't for you, please reopen this bug.
