aic7xxx Vers. 5.x didn't work with AHA-3940U

Post by Bernd Melche » Thu, 21 Jan 1999 04:00:00



Not one of the newer kernels in the 2.0.x series work
together with my Adaptec 3940U, BIOS 1.24. It seems,
the aic7xxx driver with versions 5.x didn't work for me.

Each access to the second disk, the CD-Rom or Streamer,...
kills the system (still the mouse pointer doesn't move).

Any hints?

My configuration:
AHA 3940 BIOS 1.24
Channel A:
#2 HP Scanjet 4c Scanner (extern)
#4 DAT Streamer HP 1599 (4/8 GB) (intern)
#5 CD-Brenner Yamaha 400T (intern)
#7 SCSI-Controller, Termination disabled
Channel B: (all devices intern)
#0 IBM DCHS 9GB SCSI disk
#1 different disks ( Seagate Barracuda, Quantum Atlas, IBM DDRS), gehen immer
  recht schnell kaputt(!)
#6 CD-ROM Plextor 12Plex
#7 SCSI-Controller, Termination enabled
Asus 430HX AT-Board (P55T2P4) BIOS 2.05, Pentium 200 MMX, Matrox Millenium
network adapter 3COM 905B-TX
sound card AWE 64

 
 
 

1. AHA-3940U and Linux?

Hi!

Does Linux support the Adaptec AHA-3940U?
I could not find it in the Hardware-HOWTO.
I did not even find the chipset in the HOWTO (it is an AIC 7880P).
Can Linux use both SCSI-channels simultanously?

Thanks for answers in advance.

Stephan.
