Help: Novice trying to install - Adaptec 2940 PCI isn't getting recognized?

Post by Brian Brenna » Thu, 08 Jun 1995 04:00:00



I have the slackware CD-ROM and am trying to install on my SCSI hard disk,
configured on an adaptec 2940 PCI card... My cdrom is on the ide port of
my soundblaster 16, and I am having some difficulties getting linux to
mount either of these drives.  I downloaded the most recent scsi kernel
boot144 from cd-rom.com, but it still can't find it (the readme on it says
the most recent card supported is the 2840, but can't the darned thing
just fudge it?  :P)

Any help appreciated...  Thanks.

I use that same card.  Try the Slackware compatable boot disk at:

1. Adaptec 2940, PCI, and Red Hat 3.0.3 - Can't install

Hi, I'm trying to install Linux using Red Hat 3.0.3.  I have an Adaptec 2940
SCSI controller and PCI (which the install says it doesn't recognize and that I
should email sombody).  The install says that it doesn't recognize any partitions,
nor does it seem to recognize any of my SCSI devices.  I've seached the web
and FAQ's for help but the only thing that I could come up with were some
patch files (c-source and headers).  I can't install Linux, how can I compile stuff
without the operating system?
Does anybody have any ideas?  Is there a boot image/disk that will support my
configuration?
