Dual SCSI Cards - Adaptec 7880 & 7890

Post by Mark Rieh » Tue, 29 Sep 1998 04:00:00



Guys,

I have new Dell Precision 410.  It's a dual Pentium II with two
SCSI cards - one is an Adaptec 7880 and the other is an Adaptec 7890.
The CDROM is on the 7880 and the hard disk is on the 7890.

I'm trying to install Slackware 3.5 and the boot disk only sees the
7880.  Is there a driver for the 7890?  Any idea where to get it?

Please cc any replies to me.

Thanks,
Mark

I'm having the same problems installing RH 5.1. My guess would be that
both installations are having problems realizing that there are two SCSI
adapters to worry about ...

I've heard that you should install one driver in the kernel and the
other as a module when using two scsi cards.

1. Support for Adaptec AIC 7880/7890 SCSI host adapter

Folks,

  Does Linux support these adapters?  I tried the RedHat 5.1
  installation without supplying any parameters and it didn't seem to
  work.
