I am trying to compile the new v1.2 kernel w/SCSI support, and I am have some major
problems. I have a NCR 53c810 SCSI controller, and I am trying to use the NCR 53c7/8xx
option when trying to compile the new kernel. When I try to make the zImage file I get
the error when it tries to "leave' the /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi directory. I have
also tried to use the "generic" NCR driver option in the configuration. The kernel then
appears to compile, but when I try to boot with the new kernel I get a "Kernel Panic..."
msg right after an "Unable to mount fs ...", then the system locks.
I am using a pentium-90 w/pci. I have two hard drives: 1 IDE 1 SCSI. The Linux partition
is on the SCSI. I have considerd swaping everything around and putting the Linux on the
IDE, but I didn't want to go through all that trouble just yet.
Anybody got any ideas? ;)
BTW. The IDE partitions appear to mount right before it tries to mount the SCSI, (when I
use the kernel compiled with the generic NCR driver), but then it locks. And,
(obviously) the system runs ok when I try to use the old kernel that came with my
