Description John Bass 2002-06-19 01:50:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-3smp i686)

Description of problem:
sym53c8xx driver with 53C895 controller timeout loops continuously
at boot time as kernel attempts to mount root drive - but only on
SMP kernels - works fine with uniprocessor kernel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RH7.3 on SMP system using 53C895 and LVD SCSI drive for root
2.boot SMP kernel after install - retest with uniprocessor kernel

Actual Results:  SMP kernel failed to initialize scsi drive and mount root
uniprocessor kernel initializes drive, and completes startup
My server is a Tyan dual P200 machine that was running RH6.2
prior to the re-install, without any problems.
