Getting Linux-FT Install to recognise Future Domain TMC830 ?

Getting Linux-FT Install to recognise Future Domain TMC830 ?

Post by Stuart Broa » Wed, 16 Jul 1997 04:00:00

I have tried tmc8xx=0xca8000,5 which worked with slackware 1.1 release I
have been using.
Tried various other combinations of passing the base address of the card to
the various scsi adaptor modules ( when you call the card a Future Domain
800 type the Seagate module gets called by the install program) but this
card does not seem to be recognised.
        scsi hosts=0
Do I have to compile a special module to support a card this old ?
Please be gentle with me as I am new to modules, my previous experiance
being limited to tinkering with older releases of Slackware for personal
Any suggestions would be gratefully recieved.

1. future domain tmc830

Hi folks!

I want to use the future-domain scsi adapter tmc830 (I know it's not good)
in my linux-system (kernel 0.99pl6), but at startup there comes:

0 hosts detected        or equivalent

I am using in addition a ide-bus adapter;
I recompiled the kernel with scsi: st01-tmc8xx settings

What's the reason?

By the way: there was no scsi-device at the scsi-bus, but i had'nt one at
that time and I think the kernel should find the adapter!

What's about the tmc8xx and tmc88x what kind of adapters are really
supported by linux - I found both names in the readme-files in the same

Please e-mail(!) me - I will summarize the mails and post them.

Thanks tom!
