Description Rob Cermak 1999-10-27 21:22:36 UTC
The installation worked although I encountered many
SCSI mount errors as it seems the correct SCSI module
was not installed using the graphics mode.  When the
module was not loaded the upgrade process attempted to
mount a scsi device that was not present though listed
in the mount table.   fstab- fix the linefeeds...

What module should have been loaded and what module was actually loaded??  We
know of some cases where a different module was loaded then one would have
thought, but I am not sure this case has been covered until I find out what
hardware you are working with.

The system has a fairly known scsi card: AHA152x
aha152x                29336   1

ISA card SCSI centronics interface.  I couldn't tell you what was loaded
at the time of the installation.  I'll be sure to add it to my checks on
the next update (sorry).
