Description of problem:
I have a Toshiba M500D server (Intel 440BX chipset SMP) and installed Adaptec
29160 SCSI controller. When I tried to install RH8. Installer hangs when
loading aic7xxx module. ALT-F4 shows lots of device timeout and reset and keeps
looping. I have seen a lot of discussion on RH7.1. Is there a solution or work
around yet for RH8?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start from RH8 CD1
Actual Results: System hangs.
Can you provide any additional information on the content of the device
timeout messages? Depending on the messages, this could indicate an interrupt
routing problem (not an aic7xxx bug), a configuration issue (termination,
cabling, etc.), or an aic7xxx bug.
You might also try using version 6.2.28 of the aic7xxx driver. This will also
give some additional diagnostics should the problem reside in the aic7xxx
driver. Driver update diskettes for 6.2.28 can be found here:
The new driver worked. Thanks.
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/
