Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30977
Installer didn't recognize RAID controller
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:03 EDT
While the install kernel and the running kernel both contain a current
version of the Mylex DAC960 driver from Dandelion/Mylex, the installer
fails to recognize the signature of at least one of the newer cards. The
card I tried was an AcceleRAID 170. The lspci -v output of relevance was:
03:05.1 RAID bus controller: Mylex Corporation: Unknown device 0050 (rev
Subsystem: Mylex Corporation: Unknown device 0052
Flags: bus master, fast Back2Back, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ
Memory at fc000000 (32 bit, prefetchable) [size=8K]
Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] [size=32K]
Capabilities  Power Management version 2
The controllers which are recognized are no longer even manufactured!
Please add the appropriate data so that this controller is recognized.
I can re-test this easily. I have a test machine set up for this purpose.
Can you please run "lspci -n" and give us the output on this problem? It'll
help diagnose it...
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Yes, fixing this before the next release would be MAJORLY appreciated. We rely
heavily on being able to use the Mylex-based RAID arrays as our only disks on
systems. Whatever I can do to accelerate that process (testing, etc.) I will do.
I'll get you the lspci -n info later today. Here I thought I was being good
supplying the lspci -v before being asked!
I'm guessing you need the line matching the RAID card in the original bug
report. So, here's the matching lspci -n info:
03:05.1 Class 0104: 1069:0050 (rev 02)
If you'd like the full lspci -n listing, let me know. I will save it (I have to
hand-type it all).
This is already fixed; the IDs got accidentally removed from the pcitable.
Good news indeed. Any chance of a re-spun disc 1 image so I can try it out? I
have other things to test as well, and it'd sure help if I could do a full
install. (or alternatively some documentation on how to effect the change and
respin a CD).
Good news is it was recognized. Bad news is it now locks the system up solid.
Note that I suggested someone build a fixed version for me to test? I wish
that'd happened, since the 7.1 disc images still can't be used to install on a
Mylex AcceleRAID based system.
