PCI SCSI cards under Linux? (repeat?)

PCI SCSI cards under Linux? (repeat?)

Post by gr.. » Thu, 02 Jun 1994 21:52:50

Hi folks!  I saw on here a message subject about PCI SCSI cards and Linux,
but unfortunately the message had been expired and I couldnt read it!  I was
wondering, and perhaps the message had answered this question - Does Linux
currently (or CAN it by means of a patch/driver) support PCI SCSI cards?
Specificly, something like the Adaptec 2740W? (I'm not sure if that's the
correct number, but I was told that that model was a PCI SCSI card).

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated...!


1. PCI ethernet card shares irq with PCI scsi card


I've got a problem getting my network up and running.
When I want to put my eth0 up (compex PCI card using ne2k-pci) I got a
siocsifflafs:try again error. I found out that it had something to do with
irq's. A cat /proc/interrupts shows me that the PCI NCR810 scsi card was on
that IRQ. In windows everything works fine, so I figured linux could do it
I did some research and found that the scsi driver needed some modifications
(something with SA_INTTERUPTS that need to be remnoved). I tried it, but it
failed (compilor errors). Can someone help me out on this on?

changing irq's isn't possble, since I dont have that option in my BIOS and
besides, I dont have any other free IRQ left...    Please help!
