I have bought myself a new Pentium II system that has an ASUS P2B-S
motherboard. This MB has an Adaptec AIC-7890 onboard SCSI controller.
I have been unsuccessful in getting Linux to detect the SCSI controller at
Also I have a Seagate 39102LW drive which is a Ultra2 Wide SCSI drive and I
am wondering if this will cause me problems.
I have been using Linux for many years now and have solved all the problems
I have come across, but this one has me stumped. On another computer I have
tried compiling a 2.0.34 version of the kernel with the aic7xxx driver and
using a floppy disk booted from the LILO prompt using the options
'aic7xxx=verbose,extended' but the controller still isn't detected.
I have read a few things about some newer patches for the adaptec
controllers but have so far been unsuccessful at locating them.
Any help would be appreciated.
try to check the responses on this news server as well, but it is very
likely that I could miss them.
