SCSI Timeout: BusLogic BT440C/445C

SCSI Timeout: BusLogic BT440C/445C

Post by Eric Zage » Sat, 03 Jun 2000 04:00:00

I'm having trouble with OpenBSD 2.6 on an old 486 VLB system.  Yes, we
still have some of those around.  For the most part the system works
fine, but every once in a while, I get the message

  sd0(bt1:0:0) Check Condition on opcode 8
    SENSE KEY: Hardware Error
    ASC/ASCQ: Internal Target Failure
    FRU CODE: 0x14

at the console.  The above repeats once, then I see

  sd0(bt1:0:0): timed out

At this point the system is unusable.  It does ping, but that's about
it.  It's completely locked up otherwise.

I'm using OpenBSD 2.6 with the stock kernel, and a BusLogic
BT-440C/445C with BIOS 4.83.  Does anyone have ideas on what might be

Suggestions, speculation, and crackpot theories appreciated

1. BusLogic BT-445C SCSI Problems

I'm trying to get a BusLogic BT-445C SCSI card to work in a Gateway 2000
486/66 under the 1.2.10 kernel. The kernel recognizes the card (as either a
BusLogic or an Adaptec, depending on the driver) but starts complaining about
discovering a lost interrupt shortly after id'ing the SCSI devices. Anybody
had any success or failure stories with this card?

Thanks in advance,

Tim Spence
