I cannot seem to install SuSe 8.1 Dual processor and raid controller card. However 8.0 works fine. I spoke with Suse Tech support(not advanced) and they told me of a bug with 8.1, however I'm not able to find reference of the bug or anyway to fix it in any patches available. Does anyone have any info or can point me in the right direction to fix this? Thx
The SMP kernel shipped on the SuSE8.1 original media does not work with RAID controllers. Before you install, you should update your installation source with at least the latest kernel rpms. Updating the other packages prior to installation (especially yast packages) will also save you some time on other problems, like runlevel defaults.
