new installation/SCSI hard disk/ Adaptec 2940U2W controller

Post by Emiel Obda » Sat, 07 Aug 2004 20:57:20


I am trying to install minix on my system. In partition table editor 'part'
I get the following errormessage 'aha 0: 154X controller not responding'. I
assume, based on info in min. req., that installation will not work on SCSI
hard disk controlled by Adaptec 2940U2W controller. Can someone plse confirm
that my assumption is correct. If not, plse inform how to proceed. Your help
is greatly appreciated.

I'm afraid that is correct. It would be nice if someone would wrtie a
driver for the 2940 family of controllers, but nobody has done so
yet. I have to admit this has not been a priority of mine. I haven't
looked at the specs of the 2940 family. With luck it might turn out
that with Minix now having some support for the PCI bus adapting the
code for the 1540 would not be hard.
