The following are known problems specific to Red Hat Linux/Intel 4.1. Updates are available for FTP from:
Please note that newer versions of some of these packages may be available in the same location; any new versions which are made available will fix all of the bugs older versions did, so you can use the latest version with no problems.
To use the script, download it and then execute it as the root user:
Location IDE drive SCSI drive first partition on first hard drive /dev/hda1 /dev/sda1 second partition on first harddrive /dev/hda2 /dev/sda2 first partition on second harddrive /dev/hdb1 /dev/sdb1 etc.
other=/dev/XXXN label=dos table=/dev/XXX
replacing /dev/XXXN with the partition from Step 1, and /dev/XXX with that partition with the number left off (e.g., /dev/hda). If you wish, you may change the label to suit your taste (e.g., label=win95).
*bootBusLogic.img New driver for BusLogic adapters *boot1740.img Adaptec 1740/1742 EISA adapters *boot1540.img Adaptec 1540/1542 adapters that need parameters *bootaic7xxx.img Adaptec AIC 7xxx adapters that need parameters *booteata_dma.img DPT EATA (DMA) adaptors *bootultrastor.img Primarily intended for Ultrastor 24F
The BusLogic driver is not buggy, but FlashPoint adapters are not supported by the standard kernel, and this image includes the production-quality 2.1.7 release of the BusLogic driver, which also includes improved recognition of MultiMaster adapters.
The Adaptec 1542 driver cannot take command-line arguments when it is compiled as a module. Normally, it needs no arguments, but if you need to pass it arguments, you will need to use this boot disk and give it arguments at boot time.
Note: make sure to download the image in binary mode.
where `/dev/sd??' is the root partition on which you installed Red Hat Linux.linux root=/dev/sd??
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
cp /mnt/floppy/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz
/sbin/shutdown -r now
At this point, you should have a working Red Hat Linux system.
where base_address is the base address of the CD-ROM (e.g., 0x230), and sb_pro_setting is one of the following numeric settings:sbpcd=base_address,sb_pro_setting
0 (for LaserMate) 1 (for SoundBlaster) 2 (for SoundScape) 3 (for Teac16bit)
controller_type=type base_address=shmemaddr irq=irqwhere:
type is 1 for Seagate, or 2 for Future Domain;
shmemaddr is the address of the shared memory segment (for example, 0xCA000);
and irq is the number of the IRQ line.
