Description robert fantini 2002-12-31 00:25:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212

Description of problem:
I could not install onto a system us ing a Mylex controller.

The controller is model Acceleraid 170, with an older bios. 

I can install 8.0 using the same hardware.

this is from anacdump:

error: Error: Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition
/dev/rd/c0d0p7 - Invalid argument.  This means Linux won't know about any
changes you made to /dev/rd/c0d0p7 until you reboot - so you shouldn't mount it
or use it in any way before rebooting.



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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make a system with a Mylex acceleraid controller
2. attempt install redhat rawhide [Phobe spelling?]
