Description pelleque 1999-11-11 06:32:19 UTC
I am getting the busfree and loop messages upon tring to
install. I have an IWILL motherboard with AHA2940AU
scsi. From my previous experience there is a huge
difference between AHA2040 and AHA2940AU. Unfortunately I
have the bad one.

Can you submit details of the messages that you are getting so that we can
better replicate the situation which you are seeing.

Comment 2 pelleque 1999-12-01 19:36:59 UTC
Here are the messages from the install (loop over and over)
>Unexpected busfree, LASTPHASE=0x1, SEQADDR=0x154
>host 0 channel 0 reset (pid 0) tined out - trying harder

It occours even in RH7.1 distribution. I am suffering the same problem and i can not install the new RH version.
I tried with MANDRAKE and it works OK.

Comment 4 Ben LaHaise 2002-06-03 22:15:21 UTC
Does this happen with the adaptec driver?  7.2+ include both the old and new
aic7xxx drivers and so should be able to work.  Please reopen this bug if that
is not the case.
