Feisty Herd 3: aic94xx firmware missing

Asked by Nish Aravamudan on 2007-02-16

Trying to install Herd 3 on an IBM x3850 fails because the initramfs for the installer kernel (and the initramfs of the installed kernel) do not have the appropriate firmware file in /lib/firmware for the standard SAS controller. I am using Feisty because the SAS controller driver was only merged in the mainline kernel in 2.6.19. I am re-burning the ISO with a modified initramfs that includes the firmware to test if that is all that is needed to fix the problem.

The firmware is available freely from Adaptec.

Thanks, Nish
