Has anyone managed to get these 2 controllers running in a linux
system together successfully?
I have the Diamond Fireport with an IBM UW scsi drive which Im running
RedHat 5 from, everything is ok until I try to compile support for my
Adaptec AVA1505. When I reboot the system after compiling support for
the AVA1505 it trys to become the boot adapter which therefore renders
my harddrive usless for booting from as the fireport is no longer seen
as the main card :(.
The main partitions are then seen as sdb1, 2, 3 and 4 instead of sda.
I then get the obvious message:
Kernel panic VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:03
Is there anyway I can force the Adaptec AVA1505 to be the second card
(card 1) instead of the first (card 0) as I cant see any settings in
the Diamond Fireport bios for forcing it to be the first card, and the
AVA1505 doesnt have a bios...
Any help would be appreciated...
