Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-15 08:19:38 UTC
is this a 440GX chipset machine ?

Comment 2 Sunose 2002-10-21 03:26:25 UTC
yes,this is a 440GX chipset machine

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-21 07:57:18 UTC
440GX chipset machines are not supported very well in Red Hat Linux; but most
importantly you need to install the SMP kernel always due to a bios bug that
prevents the UP kernel from working!

Comment 4 Sunose 2002-10-23 02:17:53 UTC
I have been installed the smp kernel.
when boot with smp kernel.the machine be freeze when console print"
pty 2048 unix98 ptys configured"

Comment 5 Sunose 2002-10-23 02:38:29 UTC
Boot with smp kernel.and append noapic aic7xxx=no_probe,no_reset.
and get follow error message:
SCSI:aborting command due to timeout:pid scsi0,channel 0,id0,lun ....

I exhchanged emails with Justin Gibbs who writes the aic7xxx driver, he 
said this:

> Kernel Free SCB list: 3 1 0
> scsi0: 0:1:0 command already completed

RH 8.0 broke interrupt routing to your aic7xxx controller.
There is nothing the driver can do if its interrupts don't work.
File a bug with RedHat.

I see someone else has found this problem and filed it.

I have tried the 2.4.18-14smp kernel, which stops the boot process at 
oprofile: APIC was already enabled

The machine is now up and running, sort of, using the rescue environment. 
For some reason the kernel or intird used there does not have the same 
problems as the installed kerne/initrd.

I have salvaged som dmesg-files if that is of interest.

This is a very bad situation as the machine needs to go back into 
production without delay.

Comment 7 Mark Gardiner 2002-11-22 06:15:28 UTC
I have installed RH8.0 (bootnet) on my Intel ISP2150 (L440GX+ board with 
Adaptec AIC7896 SCSI BIOS v2.20S1B1).  One processor installed.

When booting 2.4.18-14smp it stalls at "oprofile: APIC was already enabled".

What should I do?

Comment 8 Sunose 2002-11-22 07:43:17 UTC
Any temporary Solution for this issue?

Comment 9 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-22 09:55:25 UTC
you might be able to have more success with the i586 smp kernel

Comment 10 Need Real Name 2002-11-27 08:21:30 UTC
I've got the same problem with a PIII 866 and 815EP chipset. 'Tried several different Adaptec 2940 
cards, 7871 7880 etc. - all have the identical abort error 0x2002 and fail to load. This also happens 
with the kernel when upgrading from 2.4.9-34. My initial impression is that kudzu is 
broken but haven't had time to pursue it yet.

Comment 11 Sunil Kayiti 2002-12-01 22:47:08 UTC
I have the same problem. Adaptec 7896 Ultra 2, BIOS version 6.2.8. The 
installation went smoothly, it loaded aic7xx and DAC960 drivers, but on 
bootup, it fails. I get an error message that modprobe failed to exec 
scsi_hostadapter and return 0x002. 

Any help appreciated. Thx

See bigid 78243 for a workaround.
