Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:27:54 EDT
Description of Problem:
When installing a DRAC II card on a PE300, kudzu dosen't recognize/install the
new hardware and load the "megarac" driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install DRAC-II card
2. Boot system
System rebooted without kudzu being ran.
Kudzu should run, detect the DRAC II card and install the megarac driver.
pci.ids and pcitable have the correct information.

This is a storage device of some sort?
The card is a remote assistant card(lspci shows it as "Megarac"). It has a
pcmcia card slot(modem), ethernet connection, battery pack....all the
essentials to remotely manage a system.
So, what sort of configuration needs to be done for this card?
Upon completion, kudzu should setup should load the "megarac" module and create
a character special file "/dev/rac0" with permission mode 644, major and minor
number 170 and 0 respectively.
Ex: mknod -m 644 /dev/rac0 c 170 0
Actually, if your software just opens that device, it should just be an alias in
modutils; kudzu shouldn't have to load the module (and the device should be in
the normal dev package)
Is this a cross bug to 60376 ?
