Description Jeff Calhoun 2000-01-03 17:40:05 EST
When installing RedHat 6.1 on dual processor (SMP) system with embedded
Adaptec 7890, install hangs loading the aic7xxx driver.  This happens
under regular install, expert install specifying the no_reset option,
when run directly from the command line prompt (insmod).

To verify this was not a hardware problem, an IDE drive was installed in
the system and RedHat 6.1 installed on it (skipping the aic7xxx load
using expert mode).  The installation succeeded AND the Adaptec SCSI
controller and drives function properly under the standerd 6.1 SMP

Hardware Details:

        System: Gateway: ALR 8200R
        SCSI Controller: AIC 7890 (dual channel) - on the motherboard
        Drives:   two IBM DNES-309170W

                Chipset 82440BX
                CPU: Dual 500 MHZ Pentium III
                SCSI Chipset: Adaptec AIC-7890AB

I have asked the author of the Adaptec driver to take a look at this, so
hopefully I will have something for you here shortly.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-06-12 14:06:01 EDT
Does this hardware setup work properly with 6.2?
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-06-22 12:36:43 EDT
Closed due to inactivity - please reopen if 6.2 is still causing issues.
