SCSI Cards ?!?!?

SCSI Cards ?!?!?

Post by Darryl Harve » Wed, 03 Jul 2002 21:30:13



I am using an Initio 9100UW and it is giving me nothing but grief.

bash-2.05a# cat /proc/scsi/INI9100U/0
The driver does not yet support the proc-fs

bash-2.05a# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
   Vendor: HP       Model: 4.26GB A 50-S65A Rev: S65A
   Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 04 Lun: 00
   Vendor: Seagate  Model: STT20000N        Rev: 6A51
   Type:   Sequential-Access                ANSI SCSI revision: 02

Maybe it is settings, but it is not intuitive.  The old Advansys Cards were
great, and now you can't get them.  I chose Initio because they took over
Advansys (or Connectcom).

I cannot use the tape drive properly as the SCSI card keeps resetting it's
bus and the tape drive locks up..

For completeness, here is my PCI info;

bash-2.05a# cat /proc/pci
PCI devices found:
   Bus  0, device   0, function  0:
     Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8367 [KT266] (rev 0).

       Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xdfffe000 [0xdfffefff].

   Bus  0, device  17, function  1:
     IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. Bus Master IDE (rev 6).
       Master Capable.  Latency=32.
       I/O at 0xfc00 [0xfc0f].
   Bus  0, device  17, function  5:
     Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233 AC97 Audio

       IRQ 7.
       I/O at 0xe400 [0xe4ff].
   Bus  1, device   0, function  0:
     VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Vanta [NV6] (rev 21).
       IRQ 11.
       Master Capable.  Latency=64.  Min Gnt=5.Max Lat=1.
       Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xde000000 [0xdeffffff].
       Prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xda000000 [0xdbffffff].

So if I can't find an Advansys card, what should I use ?
What SCSI cards do you all recommend?

Anyone ??

TIA
Darryl

I've never had a* of trouble with my initio SCSI cards.
Well, not since i sent them a patch to make the 4 channel
card work with a 2.0 kernel.

Your problem sounds like a termination error or dying tape drive.
Also make sure you use top quality cables.  Most external
cables are junk.

Of course the "VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation
Vanta [NV6] (rev 21)." isn't going to get you much support
even if it isn't the problem.
