Bug#93589: Megaraid crash on linux boot
Version: potato / current (2.2.18pre21)
The system is a DELL PowerEdge server with 1024MB RAM and Dual PIII 500.
SCSI RAID 5 is supported by a Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller (BIOS 1.36,
Feb. 19. 99) from American MegaTrends, Inc. and an Adaptec AIC-7890 (v.
2.01 DELL 001) SCSI controller.
aic7xxx=no_probe (or no_reset -- both from boot screen page <F6>) does not
solve the problem.
The boot sequence fails after Megaraid v 1.11 Aug. 23, 2000.
The error is:
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 000002b4
current->tss.cr3 = 00101000, %cr3 = 00101000
*pde = 00000000
Code: ac ae 75 08 84 c0 75 f8 31 c0 eb 04 19 c0 0c 01 85 c0 74 1c
R*d H*t 6.0 was previously installed on this box as currently configured,
so I know a stable combination of drivers is possible.
