Hi all,

Could you please tell me what is the driver disk format for the FC 10 through FC 21. I created iso(tried both DDV2 and DDV3) of my scsi block device driver.(I want to install OS on my logical disk, whose driver disk have been written on to the USB) But the following error was thrown, “No devices of appropriate type were found on this driver disk Would you like to manually select the driver, continue anyway or load another disk”

I know that RHEL 5.x conforms to Driver Disk Version 2(DDV 2) and RHEL 6.x DDV3 and the below is the format.

RHEL 5.x DDV2 format: ./bin/makedisk ./Build.rules ./ChangeLog ./COPYING ./dist ./INSTALL ./kversions ./Makefile ./README ./src/rhdd ./subdirs ./TODO ./myblock_driver/rpm/SOURCES/myblock_driver-1.0.tar.bz2 ./myblock_driver/rpm/SOURCES/myblock_driver.files ./myblock_driver/rpm/SOURCES/myblock_driver.conf ./myblock_driver/rpm/SOURCES/kmodtool_myblock_driver ./myblock_driver/rpm/SPECS/myblock_driver.spec

RHEL 6.x Driver disk format. ./bin/makedisk ./Build.rules ./ChangeLog ./COPYING ./dist ./INSTALL ./kversions ./Makefile ./README ./src/rhdd3 ./subdirs ./TODO ./myblock_driver/rpm/SOURCES/myblock_driver-1.0.tar.bz2 ./myblock_driver/rpm/SOURCES/myblock_driver.files ./myblock_driver/rpm/SOURCES/myblock_driver.conf ./myblock_driver/rpm/SPECS/myblock_driver.spec

So what is the format for Fedora Core 10 - 20?

Thanks in advance/Ram

what do you want to do exactly ? you want to install a scsi driver (proprietary?) for which version of fedora ?

I would like to provide the proprietary scsi driver via driver disk, using "linux dd" or "inst.dd" on boot command line, so that I can install the OS on my scsi block device, whose driver is not present in the OS kernel image which is getting installed.

Yes it is a proprietary scsi driver. I wanted to install OS on my logical drive, of which driver is not available in the OS kernel image. I wanted the Driver disk format of any FC between 10 and 20, but to start with I want to know driver disk format of any FC. I would like to provide the driver on the boot command line using "linux dd" or "inst.dd"

@Ram Bhat - you should specifically be looking for F20 info right now, if F20 needs drivers at all. Older Fedora releases are EOL, do not have security or bug fix updates, we can't help you with their problems.
