Any more info on this "a panic" ?
Also have you loaded the software raid drivers for promise ?
Comment 2 Montana Harkin 2002-04-20 23:07:34 EDT
ok, so i downloaded the ataraid drivers that you created, followed the
instructions for installing the ataraid.tar.gz

i executed the shell script to make /dev/ataraid/
i installed the kernel source for my kernel (2.4.10)
ran make
tried insmod ataraid.o
recieve this error:
[root@coffie ataraid]# insmod ataraid.o
ataraid.o: unresolved symbol del_gendisk
ataraid.o: unresolved symbol add_gendisk
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
      and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
      assistance. only they can help you.


i believe that it has to do with my kernel not having access to gendisk

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/
