scsi0: BRKADRINT error(0x1):
Illegal Host Access
Kernel panic: scsi0: BRKADRINT, error 0x1, seqaddr 0x0.
Any ideas on how to work around this? Possible bios change? I don't know how
manufactors the BIOS, the machine is Ambra, with Dual-Pentium on a daughter
board, Fast SCSI-2 on the motherboard using the AIC-7770 controller. It is an
EISA motherboard with no PCI.
It appears that kernel 2.0.33 includes some fixes that might help, but I don't
know how to use it on the install disks. RedHat, Slackware, and Debian all seem
to use install disks with kernel 2.0.30.
Any help is welcome. Please CC to my email address just to make sure I get it.
