Bug Description

SCSI based system controlloed by an Adaptec 29320A card. 4 optical drives, 3 SCSI and 1 IDE. Install from the IDE DVD drive. 4 SCSI HDs in system but just 1 turned on at time of install, ID 15. Install runs to about 33% then crashes with the below info. This is REPEATABLE with all releases using kernel 2.6.12, but there are NO problems installing using any kernel version 2.6.11 or earlier.

SCSI based system controlled by an Adaptec 29320A card. 4 optical drives, 3 SCSI and 1 IDE. Install from the IDE DVD drive. 4 SCSI HDs in system but just 1 turned on at time of install, ID 15. Install now runs to about 70% then crashes with the below info. This is REPEATABLE with all releases using kernel 2.6.12, but there are NO problems installing using any kernel version 2.6.11 or earlier.

Because Novell claimed the problem with my system was too many optical drives when I attempted to upgrade from SuSE 9.3 to 10.0, I next retried performing the same install after having removed all 3 SCSI optical drives leaving ONLY the 1 IDE DVD install drive and one SCSI HD (ID #15) on line. The error messages beow are from that attempt.

Hi,

When reporting bugs, and providing log files, please use the webpage and the "Include Attachement" option to attach the logs as seperate files. This makes debugging mush easier. Thank you for the bug report :)

I believe the installer problems here have been fixed in Feisty. Reassigning to the kernel team so that they can have a look at the SCSI device overruns filling up your syslog.

Thank your for your bug report. Do you still have this issue with the latest release of Ubuntu ?
