I have been trying to install Red hat 5.0 on a system at home and have
run into several problems
any help/insights would be greatly appreciated:
I picked up an AHA1510 SCSI controller that shows up on the supported
hardware list in the compatibility howto. When I boot the kernel it does
not recognize the SCSI controller. I checked the controller chip # on the
board and compared it to the one in the how to. They match. I then
unplugged all extraneous hardware from the machine ( modem, soundcard, etc)
so there were just the video, HDD and SCSI controller in the computer and
tried again. The kernel still did not recognize any SCSI devices and in the
install the 1510 is not listed as one of the SCSI options so I tried the
152X driver but that didn't work either. Am I missing something? Anyone
got any Ideas?
In the absence of a SCSI card that was working I fell back to the SCSI port
on my PAS16. The kernel recognized the SCSI port and scanned the chain
correctly. I then proceeded in the installation and partitioned my drives.
When I got to the point where the drives were being formatted the machine
took a, well vacation of sorts, I didn't get any error messages when I
looked at tty3 and the message list the last entry was the mke2fs command.
I could not however break out of the command. I ended up having to reboot
the machine.... Again am I missing something here ? Has anyone else had
