I've just installed a completely fresh copy of Linux with XFS 1.0 using
the boot loader.
This is going onto an old Dell machine with AIC7XXX SCSI internal system
disk (and CDROM and CDRW), with 2 qla1280 controllers talking to arrays
of disks (hence the XFS requirement).
I can boot the system if the arrays of disks are turned off. When I turn
the disks on, I cannot boot the system.
It seems that devfs maps the arrays of disks to /dev/sda,b,c and d
leaving the system disk /dev/sde!
I have tried the scsihosts kernel parameter, setting it to
aic7xxx:qla1280:qla1280, but that doesn't seem to help.
