Re: Replace kernel with newer rpm on install?



Yep, that would be the "A" path, but as you say there's insufficient doc to create FC3 driver disk. I cancelled even trying after reading a bug post from someone who had worked through all the RH driver disc doc but could not create an FC3 driver disk. There are posts that the rawhide kernel update rpm takes care of it, but no posts on how to apply it.

Bug 135484. FC3 new install won't find drives at all; install FC2, then update results in completion of update, but unbootable system. How would you go about installing the RPM on an unbootable system?




Well, boot an FC2 install image, go to a shell, and mount the hard drive; chroot, then install the RPM.

Looks like my recollection was not correct--can't get FC3 media to boot the system because of the megaraid bug [The bug: FC3 does not include the megaraid legacy driver, and the latest LSI driver does not support older cards like the PERC 2/SC). Sam's suggestion would be applicable if I could get FC3 installed, even unbootable.

Any pointers on how to get FC3 installed so I can apply the rawhide kernel update?


You could do this using a driver disk for the megaraid legacy driver. Unfortunately there is very little documentation around on creating driver disks for Fedora, and I've not had time to write a HOWTO yet.

Paul.
