Description of problem:
I use a system set up with 2 harddisks connected to a 3ware 7210 controller. I
have configured it to work as a RAID 1 (mirror).
When entering the redhat installation through expert mode (so it asks for a
driver disk) the 3ware driver is loaded properly.
After going through the first screens you have to press the next button to
start partitioning the harddrive. As soon as i press the next button the system
hangs. It doesn't respond to anything anymore.(except that you can still move
the mouse ;) ) It happens with every partitioning option.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installation in expert mode
2. load the 3ware driver from the floppy disk with drivers
3. go through all screens until you get to partitioning the harddrive
4. click next and become very angry :)
Actual Results: The system hangs and does not proceed with the installation
Expected Results: well, it should have proceeded to the partitioning utility
This problem has arisen before under redhat 7.2 but i thought it was fixed back
Are there any error messages on tty4 when this occurs?
How do I check this? As the system freezes completely I can't exactly check
Is this a problem with newer releases?
