    SubjectFatal problem, possibly related to AIC79xx
    Hi all,

    I'm trying to install Linux (in particular Debian) to our new servers.
    These servers are based od motherbard SuperMicro X5DL8-GG with aic7902
    without RAID, 1GB RAM, one XEON 3.06GHz

    I have two, really strange problems, first of all I have noticed, that
    with enabled SMP support kernel detects TWO processors, but only one is
    physically installed.

    The second problem is, that I am not able to run almost any program.
    E.g. if I try to execute free I'll get "Illegal instruction", for mount
    I'll get "Segmentation Fault".

    What I've tried:

    Vanilla kernels 2.4.25, 2.4.26, 2.6.6, 2.6.7. And almost all
    combinations with/without:
    * SMP
    * APIC
    * Highmem
    * MTRR

    All without ACPI and with aic79xx and e1000 build in kernel.

    I've tried Knoppix 3.4. The strange think was that I was unable to
    load module for aic79xx, because of "no such device".

    Does anyone have any idea how to solve my problems?

    Thank you, best regards,

    Antonin Kral
