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):
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?
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
The vendor replied that it has an Intel BOXL440GXC motherboard.
Here's the lspci output:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 440GX - 82443GX Host bridge
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 440GX - 82443GX AGP bridge

Then yes, this is the 440GX routing problem
