AHA 2920, AHA 2940W, AHA 2940??

Hello guys,

I've read a series of post reciently about these three SCSI controlers
(AHA 2920, AHA 2940W, and AHA 2940).  Until seeing these posts I was did
not know that there were two 2940s, I thought the 2940 *was* the Wide
SCSI.  Now, from the recient postings, I could not tell which ones worked
with linux.  I'm in the process of buying one the AHA 2920, (the order is
made).  However, If it doesn't work with linux I'ld like to know so I can
change it for one of the other two.  The only thing that is explicitly
supported by the latest kernel that I've seen is the AHA 2940.

Any news here? Thanks,

Jason

Don't mix up these things.

It's true there are 2 types of 2940, but upward-compatible (I think).
So with a new Linux-Distribution, just choose '2940'.

The 2920 is something completly different, based on a Future-Domain Chip,
not comparable in performance with the 2940. Linux-Support was added later
than for 2940, but again, with a *new* distribution you should be fine.

I've got a 2940w and it works fine (kernel 2.0.20).
