Description Bryan Leopard 2001-03-16 20:09:05 UTC
H/W: DL320 (SCSI)
RIB board installed on PCI slot (only 1 PCI slot on server)

S/W:  RH 7.1 RC2 (QA0309)

Steps to duplicate issue:

1.  Installed RIB board to server's PCI slot
2.  Redhat 7.1 RC 2 install 
3.  Complete the installation
4.  Prompt to create boot disk, eject installation CD and attemp to reboot.
4.  Display message:

Code: Bad EIP value
VFS: Cannot open root device"" or 08:41
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:41

1)  Ignore the message, power off the server then power back on> seems to 
work fine.
2)  Install Redhat 7.1 RC2 WITHOUT the RIB board.

Comment 1 Bryan Leopard 2001-04-06 16:28:14 UTC
The problem seems to be coming from the megaraid driver in the kernel.  It 
looks at the Compaq RIB board and thinks it is a storage controller.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-04-06 16:30:15 UTC
Recent kudzu's should prevent the megaraid driver from loading in this case....
Is there any way to verify that this actually works ?

Comment 3 Bryan Leopard 2001-04-06 19:34:33 UTC
It works with QA0404 > no longer display kernel panic after installation.   Did 
not work with QA0401.

Please close this issue.
