I'm not sure exactly what you mean - you get a segfault when you do:

cat /proc/scsi/gdth/0


Or is it something else?
Comment 2 Barry Trout 2002-05-10 16:33:41 EDT
Segmentation fault appears after executing 'cat /proc/scsi/gdth/0'

Comment 4 Doug Ledford 2002-05-16 17:04:56 EDT
There appears to be a buffer overflow problem in the gdth_proc.c file.  If you
boot the machine up, don't ever cat /proc/scsi/gdth/*, then shut the machine
down, does it actually shutdown and cleanly?
Comment 5 Barry Trout 2002-05-17 09:40:34 EDT
No ... FYI .. Mandrake 8.2 works ... did they update the driver?  I know Vortex
has not!
Comment 6 Barry Trout 2002-08-01 12:07:58 EDT
Any word yet?
Comment 7 Barry Trout 2002-10-24 10:55:35 EDT
Some thing in version 8.0

Has anyone looked at this?

v 7.2 is ok ... it breaks starting with 7.3
Comment 8 Doug Ledford 2002-10-30 16:53:30 EST
This has been fixed.  The next 8.0 errata kernel will not have this problem. 
The next 2.1AS kernel also will not have this problem.
