Red Hat Linux Beta - beta3
Feb 7, 2001
Compaq DL360/128MB with ROC (embedded Raid Array) installed. 1 Logical
Taking a regular install (custom install, partitions (disk druid): /boot
30M, / 4GB, swap 250M), install LILO to /boot, upon exiting the screen
that says this is the point of no return if you continue, the screen
usually changes to the next screen and you get a partial message showing
that it is formatting the partitions; however, the mouse is stuck on
the "next" button, mouse will not move, graphics do not change, no
activity on hard drives or cdrom, unable to change consoles, the system is
basically locked up at this point.
Rebooting and restarting the install one finds that the partitions
actually did get created, doing the same install (not removing the
partitions but just labeling which is which) it hung a 2nd time at the
same point, this time no graphics was displayed, just the grey X-Windows
background showing, no mouse movement, unable to change consoles, no num-
lock, no hdd/cdrom activity, system hung again.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
what version of rompaq is loaded on this server?
The ROM's on the tested DL360's (P21) are dated 08/24/00 and 01/09/01
The following SCSI issues should prove to be dependent upon the APIC fix found
in Linux Kernel 2.4.2-patch5. These SCSI issues are being tested at this time,
now that the latest beta seems to have the needed patch.
30170 - Full-Table-Mapped APIC mode causes a problem with installing Kernel
Linux version 2.4.1-0.1.9smp or later.
26632 - Cannot install to a Compaq array controller - hang
26633 - SCSI Timeout Errors on NCR53c1510D / sym53c1510D
26634 - [aic7xxx] Kernel Bug, 64bit slot, adaptec ctrlr, DL360
so the install completes now and we can close this bug?
qa0309 does not have the fix needed. Drivers still error out (timeouts,
When does Compaq anticipate delivering a fixed driver?
This was fixed with the No-apic problem workaround. Please close this bug.
