Description Bryan Leopard 2001-10-04 09:10:36 EDT
In later versions of the driver we have changed the name of this file to 
cpqarray.  If we do this, RH6.2 and RH7.0 will no longer detect that our 
driver has disks available.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-10-04 10:36:13 EDT
I'm trying to understand...you've changed the cpqarray driver to use
/proc/cpqarray instead of /proc/array, right?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-10-04 14:10:51 EDT
Does 7.1 work?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-10-15 12:24:18 EDT
Any more info here?
Comment 4 charles.white 2001-10-15 13:35:34 EDT
Yes, RH 7.1 has the same issue... 
We changed to name of the /proc file in version 2.4.5.  
to get it to see the harddrives I had to change the /proc file back to the old 
name... Which gets it so it will see the harddrives. 
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-10-16 15:29:38 EDT
So what's wrong with the old name?  Can't it just remain /proc/array?  Seems
like that would make things easier for all involved.
Comment 6 charles.white 2001-10-17 09:58:20 EDT
It was a comment from the user, was trying to make the files the driver uses 
more consistant. 
Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2001-10-17 11:33:40 EDT
Just to see if I understand, the problem is that a driver released by Compaq
(unknown to Red Hat?) after the 6.2 and 7.0 releases has changed its behavior so
that the 6.2 and 7.0 installation programs do not work?
Comment 8 charles.white 2001-10-17 15:05:06 EDT
Comment 9 Matt Wilson 2001-10-17 16:06:19 EDT
this all works with the latest versions.  The installer correctly works with the
driver we shipped in 7.0.  There isn't a bug in 7.0 with regard to reading "the
wrong file in proc".
