Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 47786
Need newer DAC960 install for RH7.0
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:32 EDT
Description of Problem:
I need to install RedHat 7.0 on a system with a Mylex AcceleRAID 170. The
kernel on the boot disk image for 7.0 does not support this card, since
the version of the DAC960 driver in that kernel is too old.
I need a procedure for building/booting systems with this card, since the
older Mylex cards (the ones supported by the older driver) are no longer
on the market.
To do this, I need a driver disk, or a new boot disk. Can RedHat generate
this for me? How about if I pay?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put Mylex AcceleRAID 170 into system
2. Attempt to install RedHat 7.0
Card not recognized.
We're unable to move to RedHat 7.1 at this time due to stability concerns
(i.e. the thing's just too new).
I guess the 6 month silence answers the question. Fortunately I have a good
supply of spare, older AcceleRAID 150 and 250 cards to use while installing,
and then switch to the 170 card after.
I guess I'll mark this bug as closed, never to be fixed, 'cause RedHat doesn't
give a damn. If anyone at RedHat decides they do want to fix it, they can mark
it as back open, and make comments.
