SubjectASUS CUR-DLS LSI SYM53C896 SCSI driver
Hello guys,

Configuring a new box based on ASUS CUR-DLS dual Pentium III, 1GB RAM and
using
the new LSI SYM53C896 SCSI interface.

Question: How to get sym53c8xx and eepro100 activated at start-up
procedure ?

Thanks for your help.
e_soriano@dapsys.com

Description:

Version used is Linux 2.2.17 dowloaded from kernel.org with Redhat 6.1
(2.2.12-20)

Step 1
When configuring this system from scratch using the RedHat 6.1 CD-ROM the
system
reconize both the integrated interfaces LSI as well as the Intel 82559
Ethernet controller.

Fine.

Problem is that Linux version has no updated drivers for the high speed
LSI controller (160 Mbs)

So I downloaded 2.2.17 from kernel.org and sy1.6b-2.2.17.tar.gz from
ftp.lsil.com.HostAdapterDrivers/linux/c8xx-driver

Compiled and intalled.

conf.modules:
depfile=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep
alias scsi_hostadapter BusLogic
alias scsi_hostadapter1 sym53c8xx
alias scsi_hostadapter2 sym53c8xx
alias eth0 eepro100

lilo.conf:
boot=/dev/sda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
default=linux
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.17smp
label=linux
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.2.17smp.img
read-only
root=/dev/sda1
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.12-20smp
label=linux-sv
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.2.12-20smp.img
read-only
root=/dev/sda1
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.12-20
label=linux-up
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.2.12-20.img
read-only
root=/dev/sda1


Problem: both controllers LSI and Intel are not recognized during
startup.

So, once the system started, I need to enter:

Same schema with Intel Ethernet controller:
