Fedora 8 added Buslogic FlashPoint LW scsi-3 and Exabyte 17D DLT
A friend gave me a Exabyte 17D DLT tape library and I have a Buslogic FlashPoint LW scsi-3 controller card. So I added them to a box already running Fedora 8.

Now I'm stuck. I tried google and didn't get anything that I can make sense out of. and the only message I see are the following:

Partial output from /sbin/lspci:

01:05.0 SCSI storage controller: BusLogic Flashpoint LT (rev 01)

Partial output from dmesg | more:

I didn't see anything in /var/log/messages.

During the boot I entered the Buslogic auto-config routines and it tells me that the scsi controller ID is 7 and the tape library uses 2 ID's 0 and 1.

This is as much as I know at this point.

Is this worth getting in to? Where should I start looking for information?

I've rebooted the machine and now I see the following messages:

BusLogic: FlashPoint Host Adapter detected at PCI Bus 1 Device 5
BusLogic: I/O Address 0xCC00 PCI Address 0xFDEFF000, irq 16, but FlashPoint
BusLogic: support was omitted in this kernel configuration.

I entered the following command:

sudo find / -name *BusLogic*

Which returned:


Can the above be used in a 'insmod' command? Or what should I do?
