Is anyone out there in the Linux world running the NEC 210 off an
Adaptec 1522? If yes would you let me know how?
As the subject says, are the AHA1522 and NEC 2x CDR-210 working together
They work fine under DOS with parity and syncronous operation disabled.
However, Linux just hangs at boot up when it gets to checking the CD-ROM
drive. I've been using the AHA1522 with a SCSI hard disk with no
problems for about 9 months.
At boot time, after it checks the hard disk, it tries to check the CD-ROM
and it hangs. Also, the SCSI messages in Linux tell me that the parity is
enabled even though I disabled it on the card. The NEC CDR-210 doesn't
support parity. Is that the problem? If so, how do I tell Linux that I
want the parity disabled? And yes, I did recompile the kernel with SCSI
CD-ROM option enabled.
If you use these 2 together would you please tell me your setup.
Thanks in advance!
