I have problems to find a kernel which works on a Linux bi-Pentium Pro
200. It has 512 Mb of RAM, an aic7xxx PCI card and I want the quotas to be
enabled. There are about 50 users at the same time.
At the moment, I must absolutely have the quota support and I use a 2.0.33
kernel but without SMP : with SMP, the kernel crashes.
Besides, my 2.0.33 kernel is patched with aic7xxx 5.0.13 patch. Otherwise,
the server will crash some hours later...
I tried development kernels, like 2.1.78 and recently 2.1.97 but I've
a problem during partition checking. They work only without quotas...
The server has 2 internal SCSI disks, one of 2 Gb and one of 4 Gb, and
there are 4 external disks, of 4 Gb each.
Internal disks are detected as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb, and when I select
the complete configuration , partition checking fails like that:
Partition check :
sda : sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4 < sda5 sda6 sda7 sda8 sda9 >
sdb : sdb1 sdb2 sdb3 sdb4
and the kernel crashes at this time..... :-(
So, I'd like to know if there is possible to have a good aic7xxx
driver (I can patch it), the SMP support without a crash every five
minutes, and the quota support.
( I read somewhere that there is a problem with SMP support and aic7xxx
