I have a 3ware Escalade 6200 card and I have tried to install fisher. I
pass "dd" for driver disk at the setup screen. I have made a module for
the 3ware controller using another system with fisher on it. It asks if I
have a driver disk. I say yes and it attempts to load the 3w-xxxx module
and then install terminates abnormally. I tried other disks and also told
it no to the driver disk question and it still terminates.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert fisher cd and boot from it
2.type linux dd at the prompt and hit enter
3.answer yes to having a driver disk and insert
answer no to the driver disk prompt
Actual Results: the installation terminated and rebooted machine
Expected Results: The driver would load and the install would continue as
We've made some kernel and driver changes in Wolverine (the next public beta).
Could you please try this same scenario again with the newer code (available on
the ftp site and/or many mirrors)?
Anaconda works great with newer wolverine beta. Thanks, Chris
