Description Henri Schlereth 2001-02-03 02:20:19 UTC
1. aic7xx was moved to drivers disk w/o warning.
2. aic7xx no longer detects NEC-501 cdrom, not listed in drivers section.
3.) unable to continue with regular install, will cross test upgrade and/or NFS install.

This worked under RH7.0, beta1 and two of Florence but not beta3(aka Fisher or is it more aptly called Fissure?)

Comment 2 Henri Schlereth 2001-02-03 19:06:38 UTC
NFS install works, but since this is an all scsi system you cant swap out the
loaded aic7xx module, entries in module conf are ignored and you cant create a
mkinitrd because of being unable to switch modules. Catch-22

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-02-05 22:58:48 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1

Comment 4 Erik Troan 2001-02-08 20:20:23 UTC
We reverted the builds to the old aic7xxx driver -- please test with the next
release to ensure that this is fixed.

Comment 5 R P Herrold 2001-03-02 01:57:39 UTC
7.1RC1 --- detects fine --- thanks

Comment 6 Henri Schlereth 2001-03-02 02:02:18 UTC
Yup, worked just fine on mine as well. Thanks. Henri
