NCR8150s board, Quantum 730s drive help

Post by Jay F Kusl » Sat, 17 Jun 1995 04:00:00

I am trying to install an NCR8150S board into my P90.  I got the 815
chip because I have a Phoenix BIOS that does not have NCR support.
Upon booting, the NCR BIOS is seen and read just fine.  If I boot
Linux from lilo, the messages I get are:

scsi-ncr53c7,8xx : at PCI bus 0, device 13,  function 0
scsi-ncr53c7,8xx : warning : revision of 3 is greater than 2.
scsi-ncr53c7,8xx : NCR53c815 at memory 0x10000000, io 0x3000, irq 255
scsi0 : IRQ255 not free, detaching
scsi : 0 hosts.
scsi : detected total.

I have the NCR card in PCI slot 0: when I put it into slot 1, the only
difference is that the device is 14 instead of 13.  I have read the
HOWTO, and mention is made of INTA, INTB, etc.  I don't know what this
means.  I called Micron about the IRQ lines, and apparently the first
PCI device found in the slots is assigned IRQ 15, the second is IRQ
11.  When I boot DOS, this seems to be confirmed, at least for IRQ 15.

I have 2 IDE drives already, and this will be the first (and only)
SCSI drive.  It is terminated properly, and identified as SCSI device

What do I need to do to get this running under linux?  

Any reply is greatly appreciated!  I'm over my head here.

1. Help needed: Adaptec1522 and Quantum SCSI Drive

Hello everybody.........

I'm having problems getting Linux to recognize my LPS525S SCSI drive.  It
recognizes the controll without any problem.  When it scans for targets,
it can't find the drive at target 0.  It works just fine under
DOS/Windows, but I'd like to use it with linux so I can get rid of the  
other two.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated...


My opinions are my own...........99.999% of the time.
