module.conf entry not loading
I have recently installed a new tape library into my RedHat 9.0 ( 2.4.20-8smp kernel) box and am having a problem getting it to work after a reboot. I am using an AHA-2944vw SCSI card.
If I run lsmod, my aic7xxx driver isn't listed at all.
I run modprobe aic7xxx and the aic7xxx device loads which then updates the /proc/scsi/scsi file with the TL800 and the TZ89 (library and drive).
My tape drive becomes useable then.
My /etc/modules.conf file is as follows:
alias eth0 e100
alias eth1 e100
alias scsi_hostadapter cpqarray
alias scsi_hostadapter1 aic7xxx
I was wodnering why the aic7xxx driver isn't loading at boot or when I make my first query to the drives?
Sorry if this is repeat question, i couldn't find the answer when I did a search.
