Last modified: 2007-12-14 11:21:38 EST
Description of problem:
3Ware/amcc sata raid controller card for PCI-E, model 9650SE, is not recognized
at all by RHEL 5 or 5.1
I had the same problem with RHEL4 and it was resolved by errata in 4.5
Now 5 needs fixed (and I suppose fedora rawhide so that RHEL6 won't also have
the same problem in two years)
see bug 220850
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3w-9xxx.c is 2.26.02.007

Closed as "FIXED In CURRENTRELEASE" per comment #1/#3.
