trantor t130b scsi controler problem

Post by Hrvoje Marjanov » Wed, 10 Jul 1996 04:00:00

In Hardware compatibility howto is clearly stated that linux supports
t130b controler.

In SCSI howto it is described to make it work.

So I made a scsi bootdisk and entered as booting parameter
ramdisk ncr53c400=0x350,255

and it doesn't work.
Booting goes as usual. Nothing new appears. If I put some other
controler, such as ncr5380, it is recognized and reports errors, but
this one never says anything. It seems that it is not compiled in
kernel at all.

I even tried to recompile the kernel, but when I write 'make config'
it doesn't ask me for ncr53c400, also, I saw in source code that line
'#ifdef NCR53C400' appears many times, but it is not defined it seems.

Also in scsi how, it is stated that in some old pre-release version,
ncr53c400 booting option is not supported but I don't think that is
the problem.

So is there anybody who managed to use t130b under linux.

I used Slackware 3.0.0. with scsi kernel version 1.2.13.

Thank you in advance.
