Description Chris Kloiber 2001-08-16 18:25:52 EDT
Description of Problem:

This should probably be filed against mkdev/MAKEDEV as well, but the
installer doesn't understand that there is a /dev/ataraid/d0 device (HPT370
Raid 0) nor can I create one without knowing the correct major/minor
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-08-20 11:08:53 EDT
Added MAKEDEV maintainer.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-09-05 21:33:36 EDT
anaconda should detect and make device nodes for ataraid, but ataraid isn't
supported in this release (didn't make it on the boot disk/driver disk.)
Comment 3 Matt Domsch 2002-03-14 08:32:42 EST
We're going to be working with LSI on a new ataraid-supported device, and would 
like to see the installer use ataraid devices in Hampton, and in a future 
Pensacola quarterly update.  Driver disk will be necessary for the first 
release, with plans to integrate into the stock kernel in the future.

How likely is this to make Hampton?
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-26 12:45:07 EST
Deferring to future release.
Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2002-11-05 16:32:35 EST
LSI POR isn't to use ataraid.  No other products would use it right now. 
Closing from our perspective.
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-05 16:35:39 EST
LSI needs to be ataraid for the future
their stuff isn't going to work long term
