PAS SCSI timeouts with Slackware "setup"...help!

Post by David Well » Sun, 09 Jul 1995 04:00:00



Here's the embarassing part:  The last time I installed Slackware
Linux, I had the same problem, but I can't find my old notes (from
about a year ago).  Yeah, I read the FAQs and HOWTO...couldn't find
anything helpful.

The problem is taht I'm getting a timeout while reading the SCSI
drive.  I know you're supposed to type something like:
        pas16=???????
at the bootdisk prompt, but damned if I remember what it was.

Slackware has been cc'ed, just in case.  If they respond first, I'll
repost their answer.

Even more embarassing:  Here's a followup to my own post :-)

At the boot prompt, enter this:
        mount scsi=/dev/scd0 max_scsi_luns=1 pas16=0x388,255

(I found my old notes :-)

 
 
 

1. Please help with Slackware "setup" and "pkgtool"

  Hi everyone,

  "setup" and "pkgtool" are supposed to give me a menu to
re-configure the system, to install a new package, etc...
However, lately all I get back from running "setup" or
"pkgtool" is a blinking cursor.  Do you know what might be
the problem here.

  Thanks.

P.S.  "setup" and "pkgtool" do work for me occasionally, but
      95% of the time they don't.

  Vu
