Okay, I am not the first to submit this bug. Just wanted to add a card that
hangs the kernel on install: Adaptec 7896.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installing 7.1 on a system with this SCSI board
1.1 Using the floppy with a network boot image, it simply hangs
1.2 Using the CDROM, it starts scanning the bus (in a kind of noisy way,
timing out for each empty SCSI ID); after scanning both SCSI controllers,
it times out when trying to access the hard drive, a ST34502LC. This may
show the drivers are different on the floppy and on the network boot image.
Actual Results: Described above.
The system is at meridian, you can reproduce it yourself :-)
Doug: does this help?
Same failure with a Intel LG440+ mother board and a IBM DDYS-TI835OM disk (18
Gig). The machine has
2 Gigs of memory and 2 1000 MHz Pentium III. After scaning boith SCSI
controllers it gets stuck in a timeout
<4> SCSI host 0 channel 0 reset (pid 0) timed out - trying harder
<4> SCSI bug is being reset for host 0 channel 0.
<4> (scsi 0:0:0:) Device reset, Message buffer in use
The controller is an Adaptec aic7896/97
