Adaptec AVA1505 support?

Adaptec AVA1505 support?

Post by Sami Lai » Wed, 30 Oct 1996 04:00:00



Does Linux currently (2.0.x kernels) support Adaptec AVA1505 SCSI adapter? I
know AVA1505 has same chipset as AHA1522, but doesn't have BIOS (so what,
I'm not going to boot from this one), so I assume it should work.

But I'd like to hear if it really works?

yes, it works (fine for me). Of course you cannot boot from it.
You need the aha152x module and some extra parameter like
aha152x=0x340,11,7,1 or so., for details read the scsi-howto.

It does, use the aha152x driver.
You will need to tell the kernel about the settings of the card, though.
Use LILOs append or (if you use it as a module) /etc/conf.modules
and look e.g. in /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/aha152x.c for the
needed syntax (don't have it at hand)

Actually the Adaptec 1505 is a very nice Controller. Although it is
cheap and originally only intended for CD-ROM drives, it runs fine with
HDs and is quite fast on my 16-bit-bus-only computer (peak rate >4MB/s
under DOS).
