Linux on PCI????

Linux on PCI????

Post by Daniel Garc » Sun, 18 Jun 1995 04:00:00

Ok, I know it's possible for linux to work w/PCI machines (hell, i've
seen it hhappen :), but, it doesn't seem to want to work with
my machine.  Sort of.  I get this on boot:

pcibios_init : BIOS32 Service Directory structure at 0x000e8030
pcibios_init : BIOS32 Service Directory entry at 0xe8000
pcibios_init : ERROR : BIOS32 Service Directory says PCI BIOS is present,
        but PCI_BIOS_PRESENT subfunction fails with present status of 0xb1

pci_init: no BIOS32 detected

Now, I know my PCI works w/linux kinda, because I have a PCI
video card (accelerated et4k/w32, works beautifully), but, linux
refuses to recognize the aha2940 PCI card that i have on here (yes,
I've installed the aic7xxx driver,  but, i haven't gotten the patches
off of, mainly because i can't seem to find that machine :),
and thought perhaps it was a PCI Problem.

ANy ideas?  I would _really_ like to get my SCSI card working with linux.
