Adaptec 2940 SCSI controller

Adaptec 2940 SCSI controller

Post by Kevin P. Mollo » Tue, 06 Jun 1995 04:00:00


I have an Adaptec 2940 SCSI controller and have tried for several days to
build a Linux kernel (1.2.8) that would recognize this controller.  

According to the SCSI howto on, this controller is in the
distribution kernel, but when I do a "config make", I never see an option
for selecting a AHA2940 controller.

Any suggestions on where to proceed?

1. What's the skinny (Adaptec 2940 SCSi controller)


Been reading this group as of late and am trying to get the low-down on
running Redhat Linux with an Adaptec 2904 SCSI Controller and figured
that someone here could provide a precise answer...

Anyway, I am thinking of getting a 2940 for my PC and want to know what
the scoop is on running this adapter with Redhat Linux 4.1 or 4.2.

I currently have version 4.1 and am thinking about purchasing 4.2.

I have checked RedHat's web pages and see that it is "partially"
supported.  Can anyone shed some light on this topic?
