I have a 64-bit system which has both an Adaptec 39160 SCSI PCI controller and a LSI SAS PCI-express controller - there are two SCSI disks (/dev/sda and /dev/sdb) on the Adaptec controller and four on the SAS controller (/dev/sdc, /dev/sdd, /dev/sde and /dev/sdf).
In another thread, I found that I couldn't get any Adaptec 1210sa SATA adapters to work with arch linux, kernel 3.16.1-1-ARCH and now, I'm using a totally different technology to try to establish some local storage, and this one doesn't seem to work either!BIOS-level booting shows the scsi adapter starting and finding the attached hard drive (34GB Hitachi) I also took th
I´m still using an Atom mainboard as my private homeserver. Now i just want do some backup to an Ultrium 3 SAS drive. So i want to get a cheap, out of the Box supported, SAS controller to connect the Ultrium drive. In the past i used the Adapted SCSI controllers and they worked very well.
I am using a usb drive to install Fedora 17 from. The machine has an old Adaptec 29320ALP PCI SCSI card. The installation process starts, but doesn't pick up the drive (single drive, no hardware raid, unformatted, not sure if partitioned) as a target installation drive.
I am trying to read out a pcmcia flash card on my pc. For this purpose I got one of those IDE to PCMCIA adapters. FYI, these adapters don't have any chips on them, just a male IDE socket that connects to the IDE cable and a male type 1 PCMCIA socket that takes the card. Everything slotted in nicely.
I have no idea how to get this running, but this is what I've done so far.
