Updating PM score.
Comment 2 Jesse Larrew 2009-05-01 15:58:46 EDT
According to Adaptec, their latest driver update will break kABI for RHEL 5. They will submit it for RHEL 6.0 instead. No further updates are expected from Adaptec for 5.4.
Comment 3 Andrius Benokraitis 2009-05-13 10:16:38 EDT
given Comment #2 - closing as WONTFIX. I'm assuming there is a bugzilla somewhere for RHEL 6 tracking of aic94xx?
