Re: 3ware 8506-4 hangs while making filesystem

I have an 8 port 8506-8 (no raid) and 3 250GB Disks running fine on a debian bf24 box.
Have formated each disk with ext3 and 1 partition.

Have a RAID 5 setup running on SUSE 9 with 600GB Space, and also no problems.


I'm installing a new system (P4C, intel mainboard, 1G RAM, 4x160GB SATA, 3ware 8506-4, raid 5) and the system freezes completely while formatting
a big partition ("unable to handle kernel paging request..." means
absolutely nothing to me).
kernel BUG at buffer.c 559!
invalid operand: 0000
CPU: 0
Anyone experienced this with a 3ware card?
thanks, tinus

redhat uses a 2.4.20 kernel (uname gives 2.4.20-8BOOT)
and for woody I used bf24.

filesystem does not seem to matter, I tried both ext2 and ext3.
