Description of problem:
I am running kernel 2.4.18-17.7.xsmp. I downloaded the upgrade to version
2.4.18-18.7.xsmp. The new kernel does not see my older adaptec 1522 scsi
adapter. I tried an isnmod to manually load module sg, and got many errors. Is
there something I can do to get adaptec support in the newer kernel?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the new kernel
2.Adaptec board is not seen, and the scsi devices cannot be used; reboot the
older kernel, the board is seen and all scsi devices are available. Insmod sg
fails with the newer kernel.

Actual Results:  New kernel does not load scsi support for the adaptec board;
the earlier one did.

Expected Results:  The adaptec board and all scsi devices should be supported

can you paste the error messages you get when you modprobe the module ?

Comment 2 Alan Polinsky 2002-11-26 02:04:59 UTC
Doing a modprobe sg gives no errors. However, going to /proc/scsi shows no
attached devices. Under the prior kernel, no separate modprobe was required, and
all attached devices were detected.

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/
