AHA-2940W (Wide SCSI) or AHA-2940 SCSI adapter?

Post by Keith K » Fri, 07 Apr 1995 04:00:00



Hi:
  I have been asked to choose a SCSI adaptor which is supported by Linux.
Is Adaptec's AHA-2940 W SCSI PCI card supported by Linux, if not what about
about the AHA-2940 SCSI PCI card?

Thanks,
Keith

Both are reported to be supported.  I am using the AHA2940 so can vouch for
it.  Kernel is at remus.nrl.navy.com:/pub/linux/test.

Enjoy!

I am running the 2940W right now (to standard scsi-2 drives, though)

I notice that in compiling the kernel, I get some warnings about the patch
(against a 1.2.3 source), and I *have* gotten 2 kernel panics at startup, but I
have not gotten one once the machine seems to bootstrap the controller and
"sees" the scsi drives and cd-rom.

1. Adaptec AHA-1522A and AHA-2940 SCSI adapters well supported?

Please excuse my ignorance, but the following SCSI adapters,
ISA:    Adaptec 1522A,
PCI:    Adaptec 2940,
are these well supported in latest and actual releases of Linux?
