Installation of Fisher to an SMP Pentium III with a DriverUpdateDisk
crashes just prior to installation complete. The failure occurs prior to
the update of the boot sector but after disk formatting and installation
of all packages.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install using linux dd (or text dd)
2. Insert driver update disk
3. Proceed with installation.
Actual Results: Driver update disk inserted and driver loaded
(sym53c8xx). Disk(s) formatted and packages installed. Crash occurred
after all packages loaded but prior to boot sector update. (Remark: This
was a re-installation. On a reboot, LILO came up and the old boot options
were available. Of course, were unable to boot because the old
installation had been destroyed.)
Expected Results: Installation would complete. Driver disk was customized
for Fisher - used the same tool to generate disk as that for Red Hat 7.0
(with the kernel specific changes that were necessary).
Please see end. The directory kernel/driversscsi is unusual. Would
expect kernel/drivers/scsi. Did a character get dropped?
