Description clemons 1999-11-10 16:06:49 UTC
While attempting to upgrade a 5.2 system to 6.0, the
installer has a problem loading the necessary SCSI module.
Switching over to CTL-ALT-F3 showed the following:

*found driver for NCR 53C8XX PCI
*running: /bin/insmod /bin/insmod /modules/ncr53c8xx.o
*insmod failed!

Ok, fair enough.  Let me switch to CTL-ALT-F2 and try it

bash# /bin/insmod /modules/ncr53c8xx.o
/tmp/ncr53c8xx.o: kernel-module version mismatch
    ncr53c8xx.o was compiled for kernel version 2.2.5-14BOOT
    while this kernel is version 2.2.12-2.6.0BOOT

There appears to have been an oversight when constructing
the installer image.  Could someone please see to making an
image available with updated modules?  It is rather
important that I be able to load SCSI modules as I can't see
the root partition without it.

This might also be the place to suggest a white paper on
installer disk construction be added to your collection.  As
there's no READMEs available in the source, such a document
would be very helpful.

Thank you.
