Default F10 release regards SCSI Driver regressions in F9 and F10

Whats the situation
with SCSI drivers that have regressed in F9 and that
AFAIK not been fixed in
F10 ?

The Mylex DAC960, sym53c8xx, and other controllers fail to be
detected with
the new HAL subsystem.

It has been filed on bugzilla
:-

****https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=447552

Does/could
this effect F10 (beta) release at all ?

the kernel version 2.6 does messy thing when using /dev mechanism
and does not match the one detected by the kernel on my SCSI system.
means, utilities like fdisk does not use same dev scheme.
for me /dev/sda is an ATA disk.

suggest to try using "e2label" cli command to label partitions and try
using kernel option to locate partition. at least what you believe is
the root disk, like root=UUID=abcdefgh-1234-5678-abcd

try edd=off
where edd is Enhanced Disk Device

board may not be ACPI conformant, like if before 1998 try acpi=off

again, those options will shuffle order of /dev/sd??
try be consistent across installation and boot.

if you have message,initrd fail with wrong compression number
add kernel option mem=512MB, that is your amount of RAM.
