Subject:   How to get 2.1.5 to probe for ahc1 on the EISA bus?
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I'm trying to install 2.1.5 on an HP Netserver LC, which has
an Adaptec 274X SCSI controller.  (I need 2.1.5 because I want to
use an Intel Etherexpress Pro100 network card.)  The netserver's
controller is on the EISA bus.

In 2.1.0, ahc1 and ahc0 are probed on the EISA bus, and so my
scsi controller is found.  They aren't probed there in 2.1.5,
so my scsi controller isn't found and I've been made a sad human.

I know the problem isn't a conflict because I disabled everything
but the essentials and it still didn't find it.

My theory is, as I said above, they need to be probed for on the
EISA bus.  (These controllers aren't listed in the "mass storage"
list when I boot with -c.)

I searched the archives and found one other reference to exactly
this problem, but no solution appeared -- I emailed the person with
the problem and he had given up.  

I'd appreciate any help solving this; we'd like to use this machine
for our courses next semester.

Thanks in advance,
