Description thomas.hiller 1999-10-25 08:19:19 EDT
During the install of Redhat 6.1 the second compaq smart
array controller gets the same major number as the first one
(72). After rebooting the right numbers are used.

This problem was present also in Redhat 6.0.

I'm seeing a similar problem under Rh6.2. I have a Proliant 4500 with two
Smart-2/E EISA (yeah, I know) RAID controllers. During the install, fdisk
becomes very confused about which partitions are on which disks. If I install
with only a single controller in the system, everything goes fine. Perhaps I can
re-insert the second controller after I have an installed system on the first
one. Either way, something's confused about which of the two controllers it's
supposed to be talking to.

Fix sent out - does it address the problem?
