Description Joseph Tate 2002-10-21 21:47:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
If the user needs to use a third party driver disk during the first stages of
installation, boot disk creation fails until the user switches to the shell
terminal and runs "umount /tmp/fd0"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a system with a PDC20276 RAID controller on the motherboard, download the
Linux drivers from the Promise Website.
2. Create the driver diskette as described in the included document.
3. Install RH 7.3, inserting the driver disk after pressing F2 at the load
additional drivers page.
4. Continue installing as normal.

Actual Results:  When the boot disk creation screen comes up, click next.  Boot
disk creation will fail until you umount /tmp/fd0.  This also happens if you
have to use more than one driver disk.  The second disk cannot be used until
manually running umount.

Expected Results:  System should umount /tmp/fd0 if a driver disk is used.

Additional info:

System is an AMD Athlon XP 2200+ on a MSI KT333 Ultra 2 series MB with onboard
PDC20276 ATA RAID controller.

Do you happen to know if this is a problem with the recent 8.0 release?
Comment 2 Joseph Tate 2002-10-23 13:26:01 EDT
Couldn't say.  I tried installing 8.0 on the system set up with RAID 0 on the
RAID controller, but it failed to recognize the RAID partition.  The driver disk
that I had for the PDC20276 only had modules for the kernels that shipped with
RH 7.0-7.3, so I couldn't complete the install.

I can try again this evening now that I've got the system set up as RAID 1.

Any luck?
Comment 4 Joseph Tate 2002-11-01 13:37:51 EST
I could not test this behavior on 8.0.  I don't have the resources to test this
right now.  Sorry.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-11-06 12:04:27 EST
Please reopen this issue if you have an opportunity to test it.
