I found a workaround to this issue.

When you first boot the system (before you answer any of its questions), do Alt F3, so you can run commands.
then type:
# modprobe cpqarray
(this will load the correct module, for the Compaq hardware)
Alt F2 - check the log output and ensure its loaded
Alt F1, continue the install.

i upgraded hwdata and kudzu in the installer's initrd or 2.3,. I hope this fixes that problem.
At least I think so, since compaq's arrays are included

I can't test it, since I have no machine, but i will resolve the ticket for now.
Can you test with beta2, when it is released and reopen if it did not solve?

Thank's

Thanks for the workaround.

Installation of Endian 2.2 runs with this workaround without any error messages. The only drawback is that there is no swap space created.

During the boot process the following messages are displayed:
Unable to find swap-space signature
Swapon: /dev/ida/c0d0p2 Invalid argument

The firewall runs at this moment without swap space …

Thanks
Ralf

try a
# mkswap /dev/ida/c0d0p2

if it doesn't help plz post the output of
# sfdisk -l /dev/ida/c0d0
(0002447)
Ralf

the response of
mkswap /dev/ida/c0d0p2
was
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 2118201 kB

I did a reboot and every think looks good. I've 2G swap space.

Thanks
Ralf

i resolve this ticket, since the necessary changes have been done in 2.3.
please test it on 2.3 when released and reopen if it happens there again.
