Description Tony Spinillo 2001-03-06 15:24:34 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-pre2 i686; en-US; 0.8)

When installing on a machine with an Advansys 3940UW Scsi adapter all goes
fine. If I swap out the UW and swap in an Advansys/Connectcom 3940U2W
adapter, the installer complains that there is no valid block device. These
units use the same kernel driver. This configuration installs fine when
using the Mandrake 8 beta.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I pull out the Advansys 3940UW SCSI adapter. (My boot device is a IBM
SCSI disk.)
2.I insert an Advansys 3940U2W SCSI Adapter (connected to my IBM hard drive)
3.I attempt to install Wolverine. Anaconda fails, claming it cannot find a
valid block device.

Actual Results:  Installation fails. But is I use the older Advansys 3940UW
SCSI adapter, Wolverine installs fine. Both of these adapters use the SAME
kernel module.

Expected Results:  Succesful installation

My system utilizes an ASUS CUSL2 Motherboard, 1GHz Intel CPU. I can also
duplicate this behavior on a production machine at work with the same
internal components. As an aside Mandrake beta 8 installs fine. Thanks!

lspci output?
Comment 2 Tony Spinillo 2001-03-06 21:57:14 EST
If I do "expert install" and choose Advansys adapter, system does install. The
regular installation fails. (Where you just hit enter on startup).This can be a
problem for someone installing for the first time. Thanks for all your help!

Will be fixed in kudzu-0.97.5-1, and whatever installer tree is built
after that.
