Today, I was feeling awful, sick as a dog...
I did go to work, and built some other RPMS : phpmyadmin and
a hacked version of RedHat 7.0's initscript to handle the
Progress Patch that displays a nice frame-buffered
graphical screen instead of the good old kernel messages and
init scripts output. This thing is really fun and now all
you need is get the Linux 2.2.18 source, patch the beast,
upgrade the initscripts RPM and there you go :-)
I also spent a fairly long time trying to install a RedHat
7.0 server with an Adaptec 2100S RAID card... the i2o
drivers for that thing only exist for 6.1and 6.2 on
Adaptec's site! Luckily, I got in touch with a guy that had
the same problem and he sent me the binary drivers for
2.2.16-20 some other guy from Adaptec had given him... why
the heck don't they put them on their website? Dunno...
OK, now I'm going to get some sleep... aaargh my throat
