Description of problem:
I know redhat 7.1 has trouble with 440GX chipsets, I downloaded the
boot.img that supposedly helped people, but the result is the same. My
server is a DELL Power Edge 2300/450 440GX. It has support for dual
processors, hence the 440GX chipset, but I am only using 1 processor. The
server has 2 SCSI controllers in it. Both are adaptec and on the hardware
list. One is a aic-7890 for the ULTRA2-LVD Disks that attach to a ULTRA2-
LVD backplane, and a aic-7860 for the cdrom. The SCSI driver aic7xxx
driver loads and sucessfully finds the both SCSI controllers. On the aic-
7860 it enumerates cdrom fine and the cdrom works. On the aic-7890 the
backplane gets enumerated but the disks dont... so anaconda keeps telling
me i have no place to install to. I tried the new boot.img for 440GX
computer, same result as cdrom boot... I think it has to do with the
backplane, which is a device itself.. I have tried many things and nothing
seems to work. The disks work fine under dos and winnt/2000server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.get a dell 2300/450 440GX
2.try your best to install... :)
Actual Results: NADA
Expected Results: should have enumerated my SCSI disks
Do you know of this problem??? If so is this fixed in 7.2???
I haven't had this specific problem. We have a test lab full of all kinds of
PowerEdge hardware, and 7.1 and 7.2 were both tested on them. You might give
7.2 a try and see if that makes things work better.
This seems more of a kernel issue, since the driver seems to be the source of
the problem. Can you try 7.2?
