adding new scsi controller card


Hi all,

Recently I added a Adaptec scsi controller 39160 card into a workstation running redhat 8.0, to use the Dell 100T DDS4 tape drive.

I discovered my kernel log has this : "kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2"
Does this mean the scsi controller is not detected by the kernel? Anyway, I can't seem to get the tape drive to work.

The only scsi controller thingy I can find in "lspci -v" is :
SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 (rev 07)

I don't think it is the scsi controller in question, right?

Comments? Insights pls?

First off, pimp card... wow.... pimp card. Anyway:

from: /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Configure.help
Code:
CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_2
  This driver supports the whole NCR53C8XX/SYM53C8XX family of
  PCI-SCSI controllers. It also supports the subset of LSI53C10XX
  Ultra-160 controllers that are based on the SYM53C8XX SCRIPTS  
  language. It does not support LSI53C10XX Ultra-320 PCI-X SCSI
  controllers.
Now, this supports a subset of the card you have, primarily the 160UW version of the card. The module to modprobe would be:

sym53c8xx.o

If that kicks... or, oopses, post back, I wanna track this kid down.... maybe manufacturer, any card this good has to have Linux drivers.

Cheers,

Finegan

Hello ppl,

I tried "modprobe sym53c8xx" and "modprobe aic7xxx".
It says :
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14smp/kernel/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/aic7xxx.o:
init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

Now, what does that mean, or rather... how do I go about spoting and then
rectifying the problem?

Regards,
Yee Seng.

I think that card is supported under the slackware scsi.s kernel, its definately not in the default bare.i.

Actually, looking at the slackware site, I think it may actually be in raid.s

Cheers,

Finegan
