Question Adaptec 1480 + LinuxPPC: possible? 

Forum: PCMCIA SCSI Host Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, May 11
From: Albrecht Dress Albrecht.Dress


I am new to this list, so please excuse me if this is the wrong place for this question...

I want to use an Adaptec 1480 CardBus card on an Apple PowerBook/500 (which does not have internal SCSI any more) under LinuxPPC 2.2.15pre20. The "generic" aic7xxx driver is reported to work with LinuxPPC (e.g. with the '2940), so I tried the pcmcia package. The installation went fine, I fixed the config files, the card is detected, but at some point there is a message "disabled by BIOS, ignoring" (see the log, below), and no scsi works. The card is o.k., as it works with MacOS. Does anyone know what went wrong?

Thanks for any help, Albrecht.
