Help requested compiling kernel with in2000 scsi driver

Post by Andreas Kug » Fri, 06 Aug 1993 15:31:07


i have an in2000 scsi driver and run it for some time with the linux zimage
from shaun savages. now i tried to compile the kernel with the in2000.c and
in2000.h sources. the result is something like : invalid kernel page request
0xc000000 .... and the system hangs. this seems to happen even before any
request is made to the scsi bus.

what i did: add a new entry in ...kernel/blk_drv/scsi/Makefile for in2000
            add a new entry for in2000 in /usr/src/linux/Configure (or was it
                Makefile too?), so make config asks for in2000 y/n
            make dep, make config, make all, make disk

should i do something else ?
btw, if i omitt the in2000 in make config i get a correct linux kernel.

any hints welcome
