Description greg hosler 2001-07-20 14:55:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-2.9.2smp i686)

Description of problem:
In installation, selectinf Disk Druid for partitioning and/or assigning
Disk Druid displays Model as "Model: unknown SCSI".

In actual fact, a grep thru /proc/scsi/scsi will product the "Vendor: xxx,
Model: xxx"
string that could be substituted instead of the less appropriate "Unknown

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 7.2 beta, on a SCSI based system (important that you have SCSI)
2. Select DISK DRUID for partition program.
3. Note that all SCSI disks display "Model: Unknown SCSI"

Note I have a AHA 29160, but as far as /proc/scsi/scsi goes, that doesn't
really matter.

I'm not able to replicate this in the test lab.  Are you still seeing this with
the recent Hampton betas?

Works here. 
At least with Skipjack-re0320.0 (beta 3), Disk Druid  displays 
proper disc models. 
Tested on a Compaq ML330, with a Symbios Logic 53c895a SCSI 
controller and 2 SCSI discs . Both discs models are displayed 
properly on Disk Druid (Model: COMPAQ PB00921...  Model: HP 
9.10 GB A ...)

This was fixed during the RH7.2 beta cycle.

I have since verified it as still fixed in RH7.3
