Comment 5 Toni Harbaugh-Blackford 2007-10-01 12:57:28 EDT Peter- I tried coping /lib/firmware to /firmware (leaving the original /lib/firmware in place), and I also tried moving /lib/firmware to /firmware (so that /lib/firmware I've got 4TB offline right now because of it. I had to force it with "initrd=ubuntu-installer/amd64/initrd.gz,ubuntu-installer/amd64/aic94xx-seq.gz" hack. I didn't know about scsi-firmware udeb; looks like it's not working the way it's intended to. - installer says "One or more drives containing Serial ATA RAID configurations have been found. Check This Out
Hope this small improvement can help to many people...

Any Ideas / Fixes? I hope this gets a more official fix, or at least some notification during the install process that you can't use drives requiring this driver as your root partiton cat << Reboot in rescue system mode with your installation CD (this CD contains sequencer firmware file, so you can boot OS)2. but didn't seem to fix anything.
Comment 3 Toni Harbaugh-Blackford 2007-10-01 07:59:41 EDT This is still a problem with fedora as of 10/01/07, kernel 2.6.23-0.214.rc8.git2.fc8 running mkinitrd includes the aic94xx firmware in /lib/firmware in the initrd, but Sergey Svishchev (svs) wrote on 2010-10-28: #14 Indeed, aic94xx firmware is missing from initrd.gz in 10.04.1. will the fix make it into the tree? I failed one \ member of the raid and had it rebuild as a test...which hangs for a while and the \ drive falls off-line.

Basically I use an initramfs hook to make sure the firmware and supporting files are included on the initrd image every time it's built (like when you do a kernel upgrade). hotplug.c is responsible for loading the firmware through initramfs.

It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report. his comment is here When installing ubuntu, all process goes fine. You're talking about the installer initrd, which does not need to include aic94xx-seq.fw because it's in the scsi-firmware udeb which is loaded at run-time. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): fc6 2.6.20-1.2948 How reproducible: boot system that has aic94xx in the initrd image Steps to Reproduce: 1.Find system with Adaptec AIC-9410W SAS/SATA Host Adapter
This motheboard contains of a Adaptec AIC 9410 SAS controller with provides some poor RAID functionality. Comment 9 Johannes Walch 2008-01-03 11:25:20 EST I finally found out that this bug is acutally them same as this one https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=378651. There are two problems here. 1) mkinitrd does not put the /lib/firmware files into initrd 2) if the /lib/firmware file (aic94xx-seq.fw) required by aic94xx is put into the initrd image manually, http://chatflow.net/failed-to/failed-to-load-nad27-83-correction-file.html Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmountAur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them Offline #3 2013-11-04 06:33:48 Flesh Member From: uSA Registered: 2012-08-29 Posts: 10
Comment 10 Toni Harbaugh-Blackford 2008-01-03 13:11:15 EST Yes the issue in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=378651 does sound like the same thing. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text.
Kernel panic - how to fix. apport-collect -p linux 315763 Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great.

When Lucid is GA, I'll test it and update this bug with some verification.

Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag.

At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'. FYI, the firmware *does* load from /lib/firmware when the machine is fully up.
