Did you download these cd's?  It looks like the cd could be bad.  Do you see any
error messages on VC3 and VC4?

Comment 4 Chris Carley 2001-05-23 16:35:35 UTC
Sorry for the delay, on vacation :)
I'll try download and burn again and let you know.

Comment 5 Chris Carley 2001-05-31 01:07:47 UTC
Tried donwload and burned again, same error as far as I could see. I can upload 
dump file if you like.
If I get some time this weekend I'm gonna remove some hardware...SCSI card, 
NIC, etc. I might even disable my raid.
I'll let you know.

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-05-31 19:19:01 UTC
Let me know if you see any error messages on VC3 and VC4 too.

It's works now, after disabling the hpt370 raid controller.
Only supports the controller in non-raid :( I saw the experimental drivers 
and I'll keep an eye on their development.

I do get some error mesgs on boot and shut down about the drives on the raid.
I can post.
Still not too sure why the install crashed though, I didn't try to mount the 

Maybe this should be put on the hardware compatible list, I did look it up, 
maybe it's just me.

    ""This chipset is commonly found as the UltraDMA/100 controller on many PCI 
IDE adapters, as well as on some motherboards. If this is the only enabled IDE 
controller in the system, you should have no problems (although, you will only 
get 33MB/s speeds), but if it's the second of two (or more) then you will have 
to pass the kernel a parameter at the LILO boot: prompt, as documented 
in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/ide.txt.""

I'll have to live with it. No raid for me I guess.
Thanks for all the help.

Ok.  Hopefully the drivers will mature soon.
