Re: Aprox 55 failed http and DVD installs of FC5 with kernel panics on scsi adaptec raid

Random errors would make me think it is a problem with interrupt

I managed to get an install to fail without locking up last night, (still using the controller, but with seperate disks, no raid) and that gave me the opportunity to get an installer dump out of anaconda.


The raid controller has the latest firmware. Motherboard has recent firmware, not sure about the very latest, will check.

If you think that it may be something only bought on by random read/write then I can run bonnie to simulate that, howver where/how would I run it.

I could use a "livecd" type distro, but I've already proved that other distros do not suffer from this problem, it does seem to be something unique (at the moment) to FC5.
