Debian-bootdisk problems with NCR SCSI 810

Debian-bootdisk problems with NCR SCSI 810

Post by Pieter Biemo » Wed, 31 Jul 1996 04:00:00



Hello,

I'm trying to upgrade my non-ELF 1.2.8 Linux system to the new
Debian distribution (1.1).

I'm searching a "Special NCR53c8xx kernel for Debian Linux" (as
described as option 6 in "make-floppies"-script in the disks-directory.
Does anybody know where to find one?

The problem with the "standard SCSI kernel" is that it hangs while
detecting the SCSI device (scsi0).

Here's a piece of my messages-file from my 1.2.8 system which it
used to work with:

Jul 30 10:58:38 temp141a kernel: scsi-ncr53c7,8xx : at PCI bus 0, device 15,  function 0

1. Mount SCSI NCR 810 + ZIP DRIVE + SCSI DRIVE

What kind of scsi controller do you have for you hard disk? Which
version of Linux are you running?

You could try:
  mount /dev/sda4 /zip -t msdos

to mount the zip drive, but that assumes that your kernel has the
aha152x
scsi driver compiled in, and that you have msdos file system support
and that you have a directory called /zip created.

Might want to do some reading in the HOWTO documents and man pages.
