Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8059
Installing Tekram DC390 SCSI Controller module
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
I have an IBM Aptiva with one IDE drive and controller that
already had redhat 6.0 running. I just installed a TEKRAM
DC390 SCSI2 controller card into a PCI slot. The BIOS for
the TEKRAM loads during bootup, using IRQ 11, BUS #00 DEV #0F
and IOPORT 7400h. When linux boots, it does not see the card, so I spent
time researching, and found out I need to load a module into the
kernel. So, I ran control-panel command, for kerneld. When
I Add a scsi_hostadapter, there is NO "tmscsim" module in the list.
I need to load tmscsim.o to support the TEKRAM DC 390. So
I used modprobe to load it, but don't think it worked right.
How do I know if it is seeing my controller card? When I reboot, it
still does not see the card.
There is no probe-scsi command in Linux. Below is /etc/conf.modules
options scsi_hostadapter tmscsim=7,10 (address,speed)
alias scsi_hostadapter tmscsim
assigned to kernel
This bug seems to have been fixed in the time since 6.0 that it was reported. To
answer the questions above.
In the current release you would check to see if a kernel module had been loaded
with the lsmod command. To see if any scsi objects were seen you can use a
cat /proc/scsi/scsi command which will show if the scsi bus sees hard-drives etc
in the machine.
