Problem with PCI and Adaptec 2940AU

Problem with PCI and Adaptec 2940AU

Post by Martin Torpe L » Thu, 05 Dec 1996 04:00:00


I am trying to set up a Linux system on a Z-station ES/P P133 computer with
two SCSI 2GB HD. The SCSI controler is an PCI Adaptec 2940AU BIOS v1.21.

The problem is that the computer does not recognize the adapter card. I get
the following messages when i boot the system:

pcibios_int : PCI BIOS revision 2.10 entry at 0xfcf61
Probing PCI hardware.
Warning : Unknown PCI device (9004:6178). Please read include/linux/pci.h
SCSI : 0 hosts.
SCSI : detected total.

I have tried both Slackware 3.0.0 and 3.1. None are able to find my disks.

Is there a solution to this problem?



1. Adaptec 2940AU problems

I recently purchased an Adaptec 2940AU adapter for my system and am
having problems getting Linux to see it. I am using the Adaptec 2940
boot diskette but it does not report my SCSI setup.  I have a quantum
3.2 GB Ultra SCSI-3 drive hooked up to the 2940.  I also have a Mitsumi
12x IDE CD-ROM drive hooked to the M/B. Does the standard 2940 boot disk
support the 2940AU? I didn't see any mention of it. I am using a Pentium
Pro 180 on the Intel Venus M/B. 64MB RAM, and a SoundBlaster 32PnP. Is
this not going to work?
