                    Red Hat Linux/Alpha 6.0
                    ncr53c8xx.o driver not found
                    Your Previous Description:
                    When I get the first blue install
screen that says Welcome to Red Hat. I switch over to alt-
F3 to check
                    system messages. The first unusual line
                    running /bin/insmod /bin/insmod
                    insmod failed!
                    When I do an Alt-F5 to check other
messages I get the following message:
                    "Cannot find archive member
ncr53c8xx.o: file does not exist in archive."

                    When I do an Alt-F2 I get a SU prompt.
I cd to /modules and do an ls, I get the following:
                    #cd /modules
                    modules.cgz modules.dep
                    Segmentation fault
                    But when I do an ls -al I don't get the
segmentation fault. It just list the 2 files. The point is
the file
                    ncr53c8xx.o is not there.
                    I also get a segmentation fault when I
try to run a ls on /usr/bin
                    About 10-12 files will list but others
will not (I believe there are more than 10-12 files in that
                    All three disks were created using
rawrite on an NT machine at the dos prompt from the CD-ROM
                    came with the package.
                    MILO: I used /milo/images/avanti.img
                    Kernel: I used /images/generic.img
                    Ramdisk: I used /images/ramdisk.img

                    The machine is an AlphaStation 400
4/233 21064A 233MHZ processor
                    SCSI controller: ncr 810scsi
                    During the install it mention on the
system log found driver for ncr53c8xxPCI.

                    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

                    I just updated to the new ramdisk dated
5/29/99 off one of the mirrors and got the same results.
                    Was using the ramdisk.img dated 4/29/99
