Everything I read about getting my kernel to support my Zip Zoom
accellerator card and the Zip drive plugged into it suggests I
shouldn't have much trouble, and yet I can't get it to work.
When I boot up the kernal I've built with SCSI support (as described
in the ZIP-HOWTO), I get the first two expected messages "scsi0 : ..."
and "scsi : 1 host." After that however, there is a pause and then the
message "scsi : aborting due to time out..." along with a bunch of
other stuff that means nothing to me. (I would paste the messages here
but for some reason the text is not making it into my system's syslog or
messages file as they normally do.)
The card and drive work fine under DOS/Windows, so I wouldn't suspect
bad cables, hardware to be the cause. If anyone has had some experience
with this card under Linux, I would greatly appreciate any tips.
Here are some additional bits:
+ I'm using as an argument at the boot prompt: aha152x=0x140,10,7,1
This corresponds to the I/O address and IRQ hardware jumpers in
use on the card.
+ When configuring the kernel, I said yes to SCSI disk support, no
to tape and generic support, and specified Adaptec 152x as the
+ I have also have a modem and sound card, but for this particular
kernal, I have not compiled in support for sound and networking.
The sound card normally uses an IRQ of 11.
