Description thomas.bartschies 1999-10-07 06:32:08 UTC
I have a ICP-Vortex GDT6127RP SCSI Contoller in my machine, running RH5.2. Now I'm trying to upgrade to RH6.1. It seems there is no driver on the setup diskette, although this controller is on the supported hardware list for RH6.1. The only way to install seems to add the driver in the expert installer mode, via a driver diskette. But nowhere is documented where to get such a thing, nor to build one by yourself. Please help!

Could you clarify for me where the problem is please. We shipped tICP module on the distribution, just not on the boot disk, under the assumption that it was not possible to hang a cdrom off of a ICP controller and therefore no need for the loader to have the module. Once you get the installation booted, the installer should load the ICP module, or if you run in expert mode, you should be able to pick it from a list and have it inserted. If you are not able to pick it, or the module is not getting loaded automatically, then please let me know directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will take care of it.

Your assumption wasn't correct. It is possible to connect other devices, than SCSI disks to this controller type. In fact I've connected my SCSI Toshiba CD-ROM and a SCSI DDS-2 DAT Drive to it. To workaround the problem, I've borrowed an IDE-CDROM to install from it. That worked!

*** Bug 5891 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** The module is missing on the boot disks. It was left out on the assumption that you couldn't boot a SCSI CD-ROM drive from the ICP controller, which, in fact, you can. We need to get the module put back in there.

We released a separate driver disk with this module on it. The details can be found at support.redhat.com/errata Please reopen if you are still having problems.
