Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 54505
Unable to install RC1 with ServeRAID
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Three diff't setups and their actual results:
1. Installing to on-board Adaptec with unconfigured ServeRaid in slot.
System hangs after loading aic7xxx & ips drivers.
2. Installing to ServeRaid controller using Disk Druid
Long delay in Disk Druid screen.
At Installing Packages screen, errors occurred:
"The kernel was unable to re-read the partition table on /tmp/sda (No such
device). This means Linux knows nothing about any modification you made.
You should reboot your computer before doing anything with /tmp/sda."
"An error occurred trying to initialize swap on device sda3. This problem
is serious, and the install cannot continue." (Clicked Ok)
Installer ejected CDROM and took a long time to reboot
3. Installing to ServeRaid controller using Automatic Partitioning
Long delay observed.
Unhandled exception occurred. See attachment.
Expected Results: Successful installation.
Additional Information: These setups were successful with Fairfax.
Created attachment 33762 [details]
Exception at Disk Druid screen of custom install
Installation to Adaptec controller and adding ServeRAID after is successful so
the ips driver appears to be working. Possible bug with installer.
Is this on a 440GX based motherboard?
No, not the same issue as with the 440GX based motherboards. IBM xSeries
systems were used.
Fixed in Advanced Server Beta 1.
