Description of problem:
I'm submitting this as a new bug, as it seems to be slightly different. I
am using a dual AMD Athlon system, Tyan Thunder K7 mobo, 2 GB RAM and an
39160 (aic-78xx). When the installer tries to load the driver, it hangs
giving me the error "Unexpected Bus Free in Data-in Phase" infinitely. The
Experimental driver does the same thing, and since I'm not using an Intel
Board, but rather an AMD one, the updated boot disks do not work for me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install using either Adaptec driver
Right after the message "Tagging Queuing Enabled" I get the message
"Unexpected Bus Free in Data-in Phase" infinitely.
Arjan, any ideas here?
Is this in the installer or in the normal kernel ?
It hangs in the installer. Also, a lot of people have been referring me to
the 440GX bug, but I'm not sure that it applies as this motherboard is using
the AMD-760 MP chipset.
The 440gx bug doesn't apply. This is a cabling issue. You have bad termination
or a bad cable. Check all of your SCSI connectors to make sure none of them
have any bent pins and check to make sure that auto termination is enabled on
the SCSI controller and that there is a terminator on the end of the SCSI cable.
IF neither of those things fixes the bug, then reopen with more details about
your SCSI configuration.
