Description of problem:
I am running kernel 2.4.18-17.7.xsmp. I downloaded the upgrade to version
2.4.18-18.7.xsmp. The new kernel does not see my older adaptec 1522 scsi
adapter. I tried an isnmod to manually load module sg, and got many errors. Is
there something I can do to get adaptec support in the newer kernel?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the new kernel
2.Adaptec board is not seen, and the scsi devices cannot be used; reboot the
older kernel, the board is seen and all scsi devices are available. Insmod sg
fails with the newer kernel.

Actual Results:  New kernel does not load scsi support for the adaptec board;
the earlier one did.

Expected Results:  The adaptec board and all scsi devices should be supported

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-25 09:16:08 UTC
can you paste the error messages you get when you modprobe the module ?

Comment 2 Alan Polinsky 2002-11-26 02:04:59 UTC
Doing a modprobe sg gives no errors. However, going to /proc/scsi shows no
attached devices. Under the prior kernel, no separate modprobe was required, and
all attached devices were detected.
