Strange 'lock-up' problem with Zip drive and Buslogic 948

Strange 'lock-up' problem with Zip drive and Buslogic 948

Post by Eric Pott » Sat, 14 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I haven't seen anyone mention this problem before so here goes.  I'm running a Zip
insider SCSI from a Buslogic 948, and kernel 2.0.26.  I was accessing some files
from the Zip drive, and the drive began making a clicking sound, as if the sliding
panel on the cartridge was opening and closing, about once every 3 or 4 seconds.
I could not get this behaviour to stop by killing off processes.  I could not even
do an orderly shutdown, and I eventually had to hard reboot.  Any ideas on the cause?

1. Install Problem with Buslogic Multimaster 948

Hi,

I've been trying to install linux (tried with both SlackWare 3.0 and Redhat 2.1 CD's)
on my Micron SMP Powerserver.  I have the multimaster 948 SCSI card from Buslogic in
it and have tried using the SCSI (slackware) and boot0027.img (RedHat) floppy images.

For both I get the 0 hosts detected, 0 scsi devices message during the initial boot
sequence.

When I go into Win 95, I can see the address of the controller is FCFC-FCFF.  I have
tried many different command line arguments but still haven't had any luck.  Has
anyone had any similar problems with this scsi card?  Thanks in advance.
