Red Hat Linux/Alpha 6.0
ncr53c8xx.o driver not found
Your Previous Description:
When I get the first blue install
screen that says Welcome to Red Hat. I switch over to alt-
F3 to check
system messages. The first unusual line
running /bin/insmod /bin/insmod
When I do an Alt-F5 to check other
messages I get the following message:
"Cannot find archive member
ncr53c8xx.o: file does not exist in archive."
When I do an Alt-F2 I get a SU prompt.
I cd to /modules and do an ls, I get the following:
But when I do an ls -al I don't get the
segmentation fault. It just list the 2 files. The point is
ncr53c8xx.o is not there.
I also get a segmentation fault when I
try to run a ls on /usr/bin
About 10-12 files will list but others
will not (I believe there are more than 10-12 files in that
All three disks were created using
rawrite on an NT machine at the dos prompt from the CD-ROM
came with the package.
MILO: I used /milo/images/avanti.img
Kernel: I used /images/generic.img
Ramdisk: I used /images/ramdisk.img
The machine is an AlphaStation 400
4/233 21064A 233MHZ processor
SCSI controller: ncr 810scsi
During the install it mention on the
system log found driver for ncr53c8xxPCI.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Installing for Dave Guerrero (my boss).

I just updated to the new ramdisk dated
5/29/99 off one of the mirrors and got the same results.
Was using the ramdisk.img dated 4/29/99
it should be compiled into the kernel.........
