SubjectRE: scsi init problem in 2.4.0-test10?
Date
Hi,

Thanks for replying. What bothers me is that it works
in another pc with the same setup to the external disk,
but different internal scsi adaptor. So I did not think
it was the kernel software caused the problem. Any other
guess?

Thanks,

Xiangping

> Hello,

Yes, I encountered the same problem, and have a fix, but
want to test it. If the author of scsi_scan.c would like
to correct it, then that would be fine.

Basically the problem is in scan_scsis_single.
Some scsi devices are notoriously brain dead
about answering inquiries without having
recived a TUR and then spinning up.
The problem seems to be the disk, not the controller,
if this is the same problem.

The problem appeared in the test kernels because
the TUR *used* to be there, now it is not.

Hope this helps.

Just curious, what kind of scsi disk do you have??
lemme guess... Compaq Atlas?? :>

cheers,

Elizabeth
