Description Daniel Senie 2001-07-07 16:21:38 UTC
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?

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put Mylex AcceleRAID 170 into system
2. Attempt to install RedHat 7.0

Actual Results:

Card not recognized.

Expected Results:

Successful installation.

Additional Information:
We're unable to move to RedHat 7.1 at this time due to stability concerns 
(i.e. the thing's just too new).

Comment 1 Daniel Senie 2002-01-06 22:29:01 UTC
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.
