Recently upgraded from 2.0.30 to 2.4.10 system completely stable Then
needed to reload some files archived 3 and a half years ago
Optical disk Hitachi 2Gb with 1024bytes/sector SCSI interface lives on sdc
SCSI chain is correctly terminated and No SCSI errors reported in logs
AHA2940UW Pro with devices on all 3 interfaces.
Previously under 2.0.30 access no problems disks have ext2 filesystem
Attempt to read under 2.4.10 impossible mount refuses to mount disk says
cant identify ext2 fs.
rebooted to rescue 2.0.30 kernel call me a unbeliever but I kept a copy
just in case
- mount can read disks with no problems all files are where they should be
checking system logs reveals a message from SCSI subsystem when disk
RESETTING SECTOR SCALE from 2 to 1
How do I persuade 2.4.10 to do this? preferably automatically
I have a stack of these disks that I use pre*ly for archive or
large file transfers
