SCSI under 2.4.20-8 but not 2.4.20-18.9 (RH9)

Hello

I cannot mount my SCSI disk under 2.4.20-18.9.

in my /var/log/messages I can find the following, showing that the
attachment failed somehow.

Jun 20 15:37:53 hagi1741 kernel: scsi0 : NinjaSCSI-32Bi/UDE: irq 5, io
0x2000+0x80
Jun 20 15:37:53 hagi1741 kernel: Attached scsi disk sda at scsi0,
channel 0, id 1, lun 0
Jun 20 15:37:53 hagi1741 kernel: scsi: device set offline - not ready
or command retry failed after bus reset: host 0 channel 0 id 1 lun 0

This however did not happen before I upgraded the kernel (from
2.4.20-8). I 2.4.20-8 I could however not have both SCSI and USB
harddisks connected at boottime. I could only connect the USB after
booting and then mount it.

Does anybody know how to solve any of these problems?

My SCSI is a MELCO (Buffalo) DSC-G connected through MELCO IFC-USLP
adaptor connected to PCI.

Thanks
Torben

What is that for a kernel? All I know are versions like x.y.zz. Why not
upgrade to kernel 2.4.21 and compile your own?

Don't know! Maybe something RedHat made up.

Why not

Honestly, I don't know how to.

Take a look at your /var/log/boot.msg or do a "dmesg | less" and
look for SCSI; you might find an error saying that "kmod" couldn't
execute "/sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter....error=2".  The
same problem is in 2.4.21 which I compiled yesterday.

I think "Kmod", the module loader is broken for SCSI; may need to go
back to the old module loader, "kerneld".......one of these days.

I just added "/sbin/modprobe sym53c8xx" to my boot.local for my
SCSI adapter and it gets loaded......

No, there is no such message. I did have a message in /var/log/message
saying

"kernel: scsi: device set offline - not ready or command retry failed
after bus reset: host 0 channel 0 id 0 lun 0"

However, I finally managed to have some time to compile 2.4.21. Now it
works smoothly.
Thanks

1. USB Under RH9 (2.4.20-8) locks hard

Hi, I've been having problems with RH9.  It locks hard everytime I
boot.  I narrowed it down to it being the USB that is causing it to
lock up.  Now I can get it to boot by disabling the USB controller
through the BIOS.  I have no idea why, it worked with Redhat 8 with no
problems.

By the way, its an ASUS A7N266 motherboard.  Any thoughts??
