Description Joshua Giles 2002-04-03 19:15:31 UTC
Description of Problem:
Some of our software for the Megarac card depends on the module name to 
be "rac".  Also, the pcitable file under /usr/share/hwdata/kudzu/ refers to the 
module name as "rac".

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:
Currently, the driver name is "megarac"

Expected Results:
I would like to see it renamed as "rac"

Additional Information:

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-05 14:49:40 UTC
The official lanana name for the device is megarac and for the device nodes
it's /dev/megarac0 and /dev/megarac1

I think it does not make sense to call the driver rac if the official lanana
name is megarac for the device....

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-05 14:50:02 UTC
Means kudzu needs fixing though

Comment 3 Joshua Giles 2002-04-05 17:02:11 UTC
I agree, however AMI's rpms look for the rac module name.  It will be a pain to 
get them to change thier stuff.

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-05 17:06:24 UTC
echo "alias rac=megarac" >> /etc/modules.conf
somewhere strategic like in kickstart scripts ;)

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2002-04-09 01:05:35 UTC
Changing this to be hwdata bug.  As of 0.10-1, still have an entry pointing at
"rac" and it should be pointing at the "megarac" module.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-09 05:07:14 UTC
Will be changed in 0.11-1.
