Where can I get this patch?
I too have the same problem but using 2.0.35/pre10. I have an adaptec 2910C
which will not boot with the pre10 (or any other version) of the aic7xxx
driver unless I bootstrap the machine with a DOS floppy, and the DOS ASPI
When the boot fails it goes into a reset loop on Test Unit Ready.
I have check my bootup logs, and noticed that the host SCSI ID is reported
as being 0 when the boot fails, but is correctly reported as 7 when I have
bootstrapped with the DOS driver.
Anyway I tried hardcoding the correct SCSI ID in aic7xxx.c but it did not
help (even though it now reports the ID correctly - I guess I didn't make
the complete change).
Incidentally (for the benefits of the aic7xxx list) I have posted
information about my bootstrap method to the list previously but it
'seemed' to be ignored. I now notice Robert G Brown talking about
bootstrapping his systems from NT and FreeBSD - so I assume that my problem
(which I initially suggested was an initialisation problem in the driver)
and Roberts problem are related.
