Linux and Adaptec 2840/2842

Post by Andrew Li » Sat, 23 Sep 1995 04:00:00



I read in Hardware-Howto and didn't see the Adaptec VL-Bus 2840/2842
SCSI mentioned.  Can I assume that Linux doesn't support the 2840/2842?
Thanks

Hello Andrew,

You'd better read the SCSI-howto instead of the hardware-howto:

1. Slackware 1.2.0 and Adaptec 2840/2842 support

Really?  RSN?  I had heard that it would be "at least Fall" before the
driver would be available (hence I've decided to buy a Buslogic 445S card since
it is supported NOW).    

Is the Adaptec driver really going to be available soon?
