Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21236
Adaptec AHA-2940AU not recognized after motherboard change
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:51 EDT
Hi all -- I have a vexing problem that is preventing me from accessing my
CD-ROM drive and tape backup. I recently changed hardware from an Intel
Pentium III system to an Athlon 1.1Ghz system. I put my old hard drive
into the new system and added my adaptec AHA-2940AU card. The BIOS boot
clearly recongnizes both the adaptec card and the two peripherals attached
to it. But the Linux boot says no SCSI hosts detected. On the old system
it worked fine and I have didn't change a thing. Everything else works the
same. Does anyone know the problem and how I might get the scsi card
I am using a system based on RedHat 6.0, and my kernel is 2.2.5-15.
I also installed RedHat 7.0 from the net on another partition, it also
failed to detect the SCSI card. ...?
Thanks for any help!
