Description Tom Laermans 2002-06-26 18:29:31 UTC

I tried to install Gentoo but failed because my SCSI controller is not 
supported natively by the kernel. SuSE however has support in their self-
patched kernel, and i could just run that, but i'd really like to run gentoo on 
this machine.

"patches" and descriptions for some distributions can be found <- 
here, is there any way you could include the Tekram chipset patch in the gentoo 
kernel distribution, so I could boot from the Gentoo CD and just modprobe the 
tekram module for my Tekram SCSI adapter?

working on it for mjc-sources...

Moving these so we can remove the "Install CD" component from "Gentoo Linux".

I apologize to everyone for this spam, but according to the bugzilla developers,
this is the only reasonable way to do this.
