Description Conor Wynne 2003-03-28 16:40:15 UTC
Description of problem:
The aic7xxx module does not build, it is selected as a module and the kernel 
build to completion, seemingly without errors. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Advanced server 2.1 running 2.4.9-e.12 errata, install the sources for 2.4.9-
e.12 and run a standard compilation. 

How reproducible:
Standard Kernel compile & additional modules for coff and other unices support. 
coff also fails to build. 
During the mkinitrd phase, the message missing aic7xxx 

Steps to Reproduce:
kernel compile
    
Actual results:
fails to build some modules

Expected results:
coff and other unix binary support aswell as aic7xxx

Additional info:

Comment 1 Conor Wynne 2003-03-28 16:45:06 UTC
There is a temporary workaround for the aic7xxx module by using the 
aic7xxx_old, 
this works. However I cannot seem to build coff and other unix binary support.
I believe this issue is also in the newer kernel source. 
There are also errors in the Makefile, but I do not have the time to work 
these. 
CW

what config are you using?
don't enable the "linux abi" SCO emulation; it doesn't work in AS2.1

Comment 3 Jim Paradis 2006-03-01 22:58:21 UTC
Due to lack of activity I am closing this issue as WONTFIX.
