Description Marlon Fabiano Silva 2005-04-28 18:27:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)

Description of problem:
I tried to use the driver provided by Intel, also the driver provided by Adaptec, but with both I have the same problem. Installation hangs after partition creation, and looking at the virtual 5 I founded a message "writing inode tables 24/200", or anything else.

Looking a lot about related documentation, I founded it only running well on RedHat 8, but is not possible to use it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.take a SE7501WV2 with Adaptec hostraid enable
2.create a RAID 1 with a pair os disks
3.try to install RedHat 3 with the drivers from Intel or Adaptec

Actual Results:  Hangs on "writing inode table"

Expected Results:  Installation occurs

Additional info:

I tried to update the BIOS version to the last, P39, but then i turned back to P34.

We can not provide support for drivers that do not ship with RHEL 3. 

We also can not support closed-source drivers. 

Does the install work with host raid disabled, and the drivers that ship with
RHEL 3? 

Is the driver provided by Intel/Adaptec open source?


Comment 3 Marlon Fabiano Silva 2005-05-16 14:46:59 UTC
With host raid disabled, the installation runs well. 

The driver provided by Intel?Adaptec is not open source...

We decided to upgrade the hardware, adding a PCI 29320-R controller.

Now, it´s ok.

Thanks a lot for your help.
