Description Jim Haynes 2001-10-26 18:56:35 UTC
Description of Problem:
The install process tries to load the module for sbpcd CD ROM and fails

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.2 CD ROMs

How Reproducible:
Happens every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start install process
2. at the CD ROM step, tell it you have an sbpcd CD ROM
3. insert driver disk when told to

Actual Results:
Says it is loading the sbpcd driver, waits a while, then says it couldn't
load it

Expected Results:
Should have loaded the driver and proceeded

Additional Information:
I also tried mounting the CD ROM on a 7.1 system, kernel, and it
fails.  Trying to
insmod the sbpcd module by hand results in unresolved symbols reported.  So
this has been broken for some time.

I too was unable to install 7.2 without specifying module parameters first. However, I was able to set the appropriate module parameters manually to get it working. 

My sbpcd is attached to a SoundBlaster card and the sbpcd IO port is 0x230 (the SB itself is on 0x220). By selecting 'specify module parameters':


...I was able to install just fine.  Apparently, without the module parameters, it was looking for a sbpcd on 0x340 without success.

For the record, no module parms were needed with 2.2.14 as shipped with Redhat 7.0, which was the previous installation.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
