Post by Adam Popi » Sat, 17 Nov 2001 08:00:12




I have intel i2o controller but I cannot install (install works but cannot
up my mashine after reboot) with RH7.2 but RH7.1 works fine, also RH7.2
has stipied fdisk it see 1 (one) cylinder in my array druid see all but
... installer is stupied with my i2o.... I try use kernel from my  working
RH  7.1 (2.4.12) with same hardware (i2o intel stl2 mainboard 512MB RAM..)
and kernel panic.... stupied installer in RH 7.2 ?
Sorry for my english...

1. Problem with 2.4.14 mounting i2o device as root device Adapte

Its in the base kernel too. I've sent Linus all the pending i2o updates
for 2.4.15 however, which should mean that all the DPT cards are skipped
(at least the ones I have pci idents for). Its possible the 3200 isnt in
that list.
