Description hjl 2002-11-22 17:24:52 EST
The 3ware driver in kernel 2.4.19-0.pp15BOOT
doesn't work with my 3ware card. RedHat 7.1,
7.3 and 8.0 are ok. 7.2 has the similar problem.
The working one, 2.4.18-18.7.x, has

3ware Storage Controller device driver for Linux v1.02.00.025.
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 01:08.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 00:01.0
scsi0 : Found a 3ware Storage Controller at 0xdfa0, IRQ: 11, P-chip: 8.2
3w-xxxx: scsi0: Command failed: status = 0xc1, flags = 0x15, unit #0.
scsi0 : 3ware Storage Controller
  Vendor: 3ware     Model: 3w-xxxx           Rev: 1.0 
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 00
Comment 1 hjl 2003-01-02 16:33:59 EST
The problem is

                        /* Tell the firmware we support shutdown notification*/
                        error = tw_setfeature(tw_dev2, 2, 1, &c);
                        if (error) {
                                printk(KERN_WARNING "3w-xxxx: tw_setfeature():
Error setting features for card %d.\n", j);
                                if (error) {
release_region((tw_dev->tw_pci_dev->resource[0].start), TW_IO_ADDRESS_RANGE);

The old driver used to ignore the error.

Have you updated the firmware on the card?
Comment 3 hjl 2003-01-02 18:49:19 EST
After upgrading to the new firmware, I can install beta3

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
