Asus P2B-S motherboard with on-board Adaptec AIC-7890

Post by Francois Fleure » Wed, 08 Jul 1998 04:00:00



Hi,

I want to change my old T55TP4N/P90 to a brand new P2B-S with a
P400. I guess there is no problem with the 440BX chipsetm so the only
point that could be a problem seems to be the Adaptec AIC 7890 & 3860
SCSI controller on board. Is there any problems known with this
controller ? I've looked around a bit, and the hardware-faqs don't say
anything about this specific controller (the AIC-788x seems to be
supported)

Thanx in advance.

It appears that the AIC-7890 is not supported.  I have a 7890 as primary
and 7880 as secondary and I'm only able to access the 7880.  Other posts
to the newsgroups have stated the same.  The good thing is that adaptec
officially recognizes linux now so this may be resolved quickly.

Asus P2B-S motherboard with on-board Adaptec AIC-7890

Hi, all.

I just bought a system with the Asus P2B-S motherboard, a Quantum 9.1Gb
Ultra2
Wide SCSI disk, Toshiba 32X SCSI CDROM, and an Archive DAT drive.  The
Quantum is connected to the Ultra2 connector on the motherboard and the
Toshiba
& DAT are connected to the 50-pin SCSI connector on the motherboard.

When I try to install Red Hat Linux 5.1, the installation can not find the
CDROM
drive.  I've tried specifying all of the Adaptec controller types.  Any
suggestions or
help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I have a similar situation.  Unfortunately, the drivers for the AIC-789X
controller - especially Ultra 2, are still alpha.  It's apparently a very
recent chip.

Check ftp://ftp.dialnet.net/pub/linux/aic7xxx/testing/  for more details.

I remember seeing another FTP location that had the developer's day-to-day
progress on the driver, but I didn't save the URL.

Sorry to break the bad news.

Check ftp://ftp.dialnet.net/pub/linux/aic7xxx/7890-Status.

It's got the latest on the driver :-)

So long,
