Re: [Fedora] IBM Netfinity 5000



The "AIC-7895" is equivalent to the Adaptec AHA-2940U, AHA-2940UW, AHA-3940U, AHA-3940UW SCSI adapters (and others). (AIC-7895 is the chip on the card).

The "qlxxxx" below are for an embedded QLogic SCSI controller on the motherboard.

Reinstall the IBM system partition... then load you Linux release.

We've got success. After the net install finished, first it wouldn't

a little bit of grub-install magic, the system now boots without a problem.

Next step was to run 'yum update' ... and while installing
"kernel-PAE-2.6.31.9-174.fc12.i686", I saw these warnings/errors:

Possible missing firmware aic94xx-seq.fw for module aic94xx.ko
Possible missing firmware ql1800_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
Possible missing firmware ql2500 for module qla2xxx.ko

Possible missing firmware ql2300 for module qla2xxx.ko
Possible missing firmware ql2200 for module qla2xxx.ko
Possible missing firmware ql2100 for module qla2xxx.ko

Is this something that should be addressed? For the record, the machine
has an Adaptec AIC-7895, so I don't *think* the 94xx is even needed here.
