Description of problem:
This may be related to bug 29555 (that was w/ 7.1, but sounds the same).  
I'm trying to upgrade a RH 6.1 system to RH 7.3. The install can't seem to
properly initialize the aic7xxx module.  It will eventually give up and move on,
but then has similar trouble w/ the DAC960 module.  Using noprobe or noapic
doesn't make any difference.  Is this a routing issue like w/ bug 29555?  Would
the SGI XFS 1.1 installer work as a work-around?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from install CDROM

Actual Results:  Installer hangs up trying to load aic7xxx or DAC960 modules.

Expected Results:  A sucessfull install!

Is this a 440GX based motherboard?

Comment 2 Scott D. Webster 2002-11-07 21:34:39 UTC
I don't remember and I don't seem to have a record of the motherboard model in
the info I have available.  I've made some inquiries to see if anyone else can
find that info.  I'm wainting for their reply.
Would there be a way to determine that from the info available in /proc?

You should be able to get the PCI bridge information from lspci

Comment 4 Scott D. Webster 2002-11-08 00:45:52 UTC
The vendor replied that it has an Intel BOXL440GXC motherboard.

Here's the lspci output:

Then yes, this is the 440GX routing problem
