On boot, the kernel does show an error message (given below). As this message says it's a bug, I thought I could submit it ... ;)

This happens during boot (in the initrd part). Looking at linuxrc,
this must be either when doing the insmod for ncr53c8xx or for
This is on a Compaq Proliant 1500 with a onboard NCR53C825 SCSI chip
and a Compaq Smart Array Controller (the original one).
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
Does Roswell2 still do this ?
Was this a one-time occurence or did it occur on each boot?
Also, to re-iterate Arjan's question, does it occur with
the refresh of Roswell (kernel 2.4.7-2)?
Just a quick note:
I'll be busy until Tue 08 28 2001, will test this sometime between Wed and Sun with Roswell2.
This did occur on each reboot with the last beta, but I didn't have time to check the latest beta for now. Will test this ASAP ...
What's the status of this?
