Always IN2000 SCSI Question...

Post by PineSal » Sat, 18 Jun 1994 19:36:19

Know this is still in development, but has anyone had any luck with the
current slackware install disk for the Always IN2000?

I have 5 scsi drives, and it hangs after it finds the first (ID 0).

I'm getting the following:

IN2000 probe found hdw. vers. 27 and BIOS at 0c8000

Configuring IN2000 at IO:110, IRQ 11

SCSI0 : Always IN2000
SCSI : 1 Hosts

Vendor: Seagate     Model: ST41600N    REV: 0073
Type: Direct-Access           ANSI SCSI Revision: 02

At this point it hangs..... (or at least I don't know what it's looking

Thanks for any help on this.

>I have 5 scsi drives, and it hangs after it finds the first (ID 0).

I'm currently only using 1 drive on my IN2000, but when I recently upgraded
to a larger drive I read in the DOCS that the IN2000 will only find drives
in sequence.  SCSI ID 0-1-2-3 and so on.

The other thing is to make sure that only the last drive in the chain has
the SCSI terminating resistors.

Hope this helps, WhiteWolf.

1. Always IN2000 SCSI HA Question

I am using the Always IN-2000 with a Fujitsu SCSI HD.  I can not get
Linux to recognize /dev/sda.  I have obtained all of the files in
/pub/linux/ALPHA/scsi/IN2000 at  Booting from the
image zImage seems to acknowledge the IN-2000.  However, after several
(about 12) errors: IN-2000 queue command timeout! (or somesuch), it
says 0 SCSI disks detected.  fdisk /dev/sda fails.

I have the files in2000.c and in2000.h and instructions for their
integration into the kernal.  How, though, do I use Linux make to make
the kernal when I can't get the kernal to boot?  (chicken vs egg scenario)

I am trying to install the most recent Slackware from
Does someone have a boot disk image for Slackware that integrates the
most recent IN2000 driver?  Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Addtionally, there is an NEC 3Xi attached to this adapter.

I use Windows NT perdominately.  I think I have a plan of attack for
getting NT, DOS and Linux to boot.  If anyone has done this already,
though, I would appreciate if you shared your experiences with me.
