Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 589
aic7880-based systems fail to boot
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
The boot disks shipped with RH52 have an old (5.1.2 vs
5.1.6) of the aic7xxx driver and do not allow an
AIC7880-based system to boot properly
(repeated bus timeouts and hangs)
Fix: new images with latest driver, the same contained in
the kernel in updates/ (that works, I tested it)
This is a know problem. We have new boot.img and supp.img files that
can be obtained from:
Either use the rawrite utilities in /dosutils of the cdrom or use the
dd command from a working Linux system to create the new boot disk.
You may reopen the bug if that doesnt help.
