Description Laurent Chavey 1999-11-20 22:24:27 EST
on a pentium 100Mhz, 58Mg of ram.
one IDE drive (hda), one IDE cdrom, one scsi drive (sda)
 / -> 150MBb on hda1
 swap -> 50MB on hda2
 /swap -> 100MB on hda3
 /boot -> 29 MB on hda4

 /usr  -> 1GB on sda1
 /home -> 1 GB on sda2
 /tmp  -> 29 MB on sda3

I have
  a paradize s3 trio 64 PCI video card,
  a future domain (old) scsi PCI controller
     bios on controller = 36C70 v1.3 1994
  a tachyon TL 2.3 PCI fibre channel adapter
  a 3 com isa 3c509

I use to run read hat 5.3 without any problems.
  (same configuration)

when I load redhat 6.1 and do the install, during the package
install I get the following

  Kernel panic: SCSI <fdomain> fdomain_16x0_queue()
                not reentrant
                in swapper task- not suncing

   (this comes from /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/fdomain.c)
    afer a call to the queue() entry from scsi.c

  any idea.

  I switch to an adaptec aic7xxx.o adapter (some old stuff
  that I have laying arround and it  works)

  any idea :-)

  thank you.

I'm seeing this with RedHat 8.0 (!!!) on a 133MHz Pentium, with two SCSI drives,
no IDE drives. Should I report this as a new bug, or just append to this one?

If you are still having this problem with the current errata kernel, please open
a new ticket with your hardware information. The last time I dealt with a
fdomain PCI controller I needed to update its BIOS to avoid some reset problems
I had seen on it. However I am not sure this is possible anymore.
