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 20:33:41 UTC
Segmentation fault appears after executing 'cat /proc/scsi/gdth/0'

Comment 4 Doug Ledford 2002-05-16 21:04:56 UTC
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 13:40:34 UTC
No ... FYI .. Mandrake 8.2 works ... did they update the driver?  I know Vortex
has not!

Comment 6 Barry Trout 2002-08-01 16:07:58 UTC
Any word yet?

Comment 7 Barry Trout 2002-10-24 14:55:35 UTC
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 21:53:30 UTC
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.
