Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6918
Boot disk does not recognize SCSI 2940AU from Adaptec
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
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.
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.
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.
