Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7568
Installer fails to install symbios driver ncr53c8xx
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:39:58 EST
Doing a fresh installation of REDHAT 6.1 on a new system using this
INTEL SERVER MOTHER BOARD "N440BX"
PENTIUM II400 CPU
SYMBIOS DUAL CHANNAL SYM53C876 EMBEDED ON BOARD
TOSHIBA SCSI CDROM "XM-6201B-S"
FUJITSU 9GB SCA HARD DISK
The installer hangs when reseting SCSI bus, it does so in expert mode as
well, the installer goes through an endless loop.
The hardware compatability list shows TWO modules for this:
NCR53C8XX for the Standard
SYM53C8XX for the High Performance SCSI Dual Channal
the second module SYM53C8XX is not on any of the installer versions
including the latest RHEA-1999-044.
Please provide any information you may have or perhaps a resolution, we
would like to complete this instalation and we have not gone past step one
yet. Installation support people could not help.
