SubjectRe: Problem w/ 2.2.10-ac12 & NCR53c875
>

Hi all,

I do not know if this helps finding the problem. I have ac-12 working on a DS10
with NCR53c875, I had the booting problem and what I did (since I do not have
programming skills) is I copied the drivers/scsi/ directory from ac-10, that
worked for me to drivers/scsi from ac-12 recompiled and it started working. I
am telling this because I did not do any modification to arc/alpha/core_pyxis.c

Sorry if this not relevant

Thanks for your work

Flavio
