Description Murray Todd Williams 2003-06-25 23:01:45 UTC
Description of problem:
2.4.20 "new" aic7xxx Adaptec module doesn't recognise a 29160 card.

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

How reproducible:
You need a 29160 SCSI card around. I don't know if I was "lucky" and just got a
newer sub-model of something.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install GinGin64 release on the IDE drive of a machine with SCSI 29160 card
and SCSI drive.
2. Boot into Linux. Card isn't recognized and SCSI module doesn't load.
3. Manually insmod scsi_mod and then insmod aic7xxx_old and voila! The SCSI
drive is detected. I was able to compile the new 2.4.21 kernel and the "new"
aic7xxx code worked fine. (I didn't include the "old" code in the kernel
compile, and the kernel "saw" the card, so all was okay.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
If you include the aic7xxx_old module amoung the modules that the Redhat
installer allows you to manually install, the poor user can probably get around
this problem. Otherwise, if you move to 2.4.21 before releaseing the x86_64
package you should be safe.

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/
