linux binary with dpt driver would not boot

Post by k.. » Sun, 04 Sep 1994 04:59:03

Following responses to my posting about Linux and dpt controllers, I got the
kernel image vmlinuz.eata.gz from tsx-11, from the directory :

It seemed to recognise the disk and tape. But then, it crashed. The boot
messages were as follows :

scsi : detected 1 SCSI tape 1 SCSI disk total
Linux version 1.1.44   ...

Partition check :
        sda : sda1 sda3 sda4
SCSI disk request error : invalid device
ll-rw-block : only 1023968 - char blocks implemented (1024)

MINIX-fs : unable to read superblock
SCSI disk request error : invalid device
Kernel panic : No device passed to allocate_device()

I would really appreciate any help. Thanks.

1. PCI DPT 2024A/9X not recognized with boot disk

When I boot with a slackware (3.0) boot diskette contaning the driver for DPT/EATA PCI
controller (PM2024A/9x) the controller seemsto be  found but the message is              
"HBA at 0x6010 didn't react on INQUIRY. Sorry.". I've tried with both scsinet1 and scsi boot
disk of the Slackware distribution.                                
I've a Pentium 133 with 32 Mb. The disk and ther CD-ROM connected to this controller are correctly
seen by WfW.                                                      
I can't install Linux due to this problem.    
Does anybody knows how to solve this situation ?                                
many thanks and best regards
