installer hangs loading sym53c8xx driver
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Tried to install from floppy and cd with same results.
Actual Results: System hangs unable to continue loading
PC is a Micron netframe 3100
scsi controller is a Symbios sym53c875
I have the same problem with sym53c860.
Error is 'divide error 000' or something like that.
Because of this I can't install RedHat 7.1.
I have no problems with this when I installed RedHat 7.0..
The dev package contains device inodes. If there's a hang, it's probably a
driver bug, which is kernel territory. Reassigning to "kernel".
I have a similar problem on a machine I have. My controller is SYM53C875.
Linux tries to load the driver and eventually fails with a timeout.
I get the following in one of the log windows:
<4>scsi: Aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi 0, channel 0, id 6, lun
0 0x12 00 00 00 ff 00
<4>sym53c8xx_abort: pid=0 serial_number=10 serial_number_at_timeout=10
<4> SCSI host 0 abort (pid 0) timed out - resetting
- The following lines are repeated over and over with only the serial_number
and serial_number_at_timeout values changing.
<4>sym53c8xx_reset: pid=0 resetflags=2 serial_number=133
<6>sym53c876-0: restart (scsi reset).
<4>sym53c876-0: Downloading SCSI SCRIPTS
<4>SCSI host 0 abort (pid 0) timed out - resetting
<4>SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0
Do new driver sym53c8xx_2 work ?
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
