Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 54331
Install uses the /proc/array file for detection
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:30 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.
I'm trying to understand...you've changed the cpqarray driver to use
/proc/cpqarray instead of /proc/array, right?
Does 7.1 work?
Any more info here?
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.
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.
It was a comment from the user, was trying to make the files the driver uses
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?
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".
