I just finally got around to reinstalling linux on my box this weekend (mandrake 8.1) and the same problem I've always had has shown up.
On bootup, when it starts checking module dependencies (using /etc/rc./rc.modules script), it segfaults when doing the scsi_hostadapter.
If i comment out that scsi_hostadapter line in /etc/modules it works fine so I know it's that. *I'm using the aic7xxx pci card. * this has been troubling me ever since i've gone to mandrake 8.1 and i've never had this problem with any other distro (including previous releases of mandrake). *
also, when rebooting or shutting down, the comp freezes when disconnection usb device 2. I don't know which device this is but it just sits there and does nothing. Any ideas?
