Adaptec SCSI card 39160 problem
I've RedHat Linux 7.1 installed on my computer and I'm trying to use the Adaptec SCSI card 39160. From the Adaptec website I can find the drivers for RH7.2, 7.3 and 8.0, but just not 7.1. They got a "Ultra 160 Drivers for Linux, version 6.2.4" patch for kernel 2.4.2-2, and my kernel is 2.4.2-2, so I gave it a try.
I installed the patch by
zcat linux-aic7xxx-6.2.4-2.4.2-2rh.patch.gz | patch -p1
and I recompiled the kernel with
and rebooted with the newly created boot image. However, the system halted after it said
Uncompressing Linux...... Ok, booting the kernel.
So did I miss anything? I don't even know if the driver for the SCSI card is a loadable kernel module or not. If it's a LKM, is its name aic7xxx.o? Any kind of pointer is appreciated, thanks!
