LSI MegaRAID U320-1 and RedHat 7.2


Hi guys,

Im having an issue with Redhat 7.2 and the LSI megaraid controller. I boot using "linux dd" and install the driver, redhat then picks up the hdd's & installs the OS normally & everything is hunky doory.

It then asks me to reboot, after I do this I get the redhat splash screen (so i know its reading the disks) but I get the kernel panic error:

kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel

If anybody can shed some light on this id be most appreciative.

Cheers.

>Josh.

What did you format the diskette with prior to making it into a megaraid driver diskette?

What driver are you loading and where did you get it? I ask because I don't see a 7.2 driver on the LSI site. I see RH 8.0 and 9.0 here > http://www.lsilogic.com/products/meg...csi_320_1.html

bugzilla.redhat.com (kernel panics)

Please... what did you replace them with so other people can benefit from your "fixes" if they search and find this thread in the future?

I replaced it with the same RAID card & the same hard drives that were 73gb seagates.

I was too busy to actually troubleshoot the issue, I needed the box running.
