AHA-2920 scsi problems

AHA-2920 scsi problems

Post by ///ax Zuerche » Tue, 05 Aug 1997 04:00:00



Hello,

When I intensively use the IDE CD-Rom player to copy huge amounts of data
to my SCSI HD, it hangs :-(

This is what the kernel reports:

Jul 28 20:10:48 viking kernel: scsi : aborting command due to timeout :
     pid 17467, scsi0, channel 0, id 4, lun 0 Read (6) 04 d2 34 20 00

After that the kernel tryes to reset the SCSI bus, but most of times the
system crashes.

This happens only when I install LinuX from scratch (or a lot of
huge packages) and when I want to generate an iso-track for my CD Writer.
In both cases I had (and have) to use the CD Writer to read datas (veeeery
slow) or my system will crash.

I enabled Verbose SCSI errors report, but where can I find the meaning of
error codes ?

Does anyone know if there is a solution ?

Thanks a lot ! Any help will be appreciated :-)

AHA-2920 scsi problems

I had a problem with an AHA 2940W similar to yours. I could not get the
board to work with a PR200 Cyrix chip (soyo board). Seemed the board was
too fast.

How did you solve the problem ?

Thanks.

1. PCI/SCSI AHA-2920 problems installing SW 3.2 - HELP!

Greetings,

  This morning I began installing Linux (for the very first time) SlackWare
3.2 onto my P100/32mb system.  This system has a VX motherboard, PCI SCSI
controller (Adaptec AHA-2920) and ST-31230N 1gb SCSI hard drive.  The hd
already has Win95 installed on a 600mb VFAT32 partition.

  I am at the early stage where I am trying to boot Linux from appropriate
BOOT/ROOT diskettes which I made from the CD (using VIEW).  I wasn't sure
what boot image to use because I could not find any reference to AHA-2920
in the docs, so I used scsi.s to create my boot disk.

  During the boot process, as text flew by, I noticed that the system
appeared to NOT find my SCSI controller (I saw something like "SCSI hosts =
0").  However, I was able to successfully boot and then log in as root.

  Then, when I attempted to create a Linux partition (using "fdisk
/dev/sda") it told me that the device could not be found!

QUESTIONS
---------

1) Did I do something wrong?  I WAS following the installation guide that
came with SlackWare 3.2.

2) Why didn't the boot disk find my PCI-based AHA-2920 controller? Is this
controller not yet supported in Linux?

3) I've been reading abit about Win95 VFAT32 issue wrt Linux... could this
be part of my problem?

  I'd appreciate any and all help with this, either by e-mail or by posting
to the group.  Thanks for taking the time to read this.
