Description Michael Redinger 2001-07-17 19:09:51 UTC
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).

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-07-18 20:35:50 UTC
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-20 12:58:08 UTC
Does Roswell2 still do this ?

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 2001-08-24 18:16:31 UTC
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)?

Comment 4 Michael Redinger 2001-08-24 22:05:57 UTC
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?
