Please provide lspci -v and lspci -n output so that I can see which PCI ID your
model has

Comment 4 Alan Cox 2002-02-11 16:46:19 UTC
This card id is known by the current driver. What precisely do the boot
messages say after the aacraid module is loaded during the boot and before
it fails ?

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-02-11 17:10:09 UTC
Is there any method to record fail start on a file ?( I don't think to hand write gerogliphical message)

Comment 6 Alan Cox 2002-02-11 17:20:33 UTC
Without it finding the disks at boot - Im afraid not. What I need to know is
what it prints after

Red Hat/Adaptec aacraid driver ...

for the next few lines, and also the message at the end when it gives up

Comment 7 Need Real Name 2002-02-11 17:58:44 UTC
I don't believe but I have make it !:

Comment 8 Alan Cox 2002-02-11 18:19:05 UTC
Ok can you try the kernel from


Thats Matt Domsch at Dell, and they have a kernel with a further fix for the
aacraid in which may be relevant. Let me know if it fixes the problem, and we
hope to have that fix in our next errata

Comment 9 Need Real Name 2002-02-28 16:16:51 UTC
The bug is resolved with kernel-2.4.9-31
