Adaptec 2940 U2W and NeXTStep 3.3/Mac OS X Server (DR2)

Post by Robert F Tobl » Wed, 04 Nov 1998 04:00:00



Dear NextSteppers --

I intend to buy an Adaptec 2940 U2W Controller (I want to go for speed,
and the DPT controllers are hard to get here in Austria).

Are there any known problems with this controller and NeXTstep 3.3 /
Mac OS X Server 1.0 (DR 2)?

Thanks for any information.

-- Robert

Yeah, there are problems, it doesn't work.  (-;  It is not currently  
supported by the Adaptec 2940 driver.  Either wait for support, or get a  
non-U2 Controller.

1. NextStep 3.3 and Adaptec 2940

Hello Readers,

I convinced my friend Vlad to obtain a copy of NextStep for Intel!
But he can't get it working....
What should he do?

Thanx, Dennis.
