SubjectSCSI F2513A and 640 Mbyte media and 2.4.0
Date
From


The 2k sector support is imperfect;-(

The media are recognised correctly (I've not tried switching between 230 Nbyte
and 640 Mbyte disks), BUT

Something can forget.

I started with a Linux disk containing my archive of RHL 5.2 rpms.

I did an rpm --verify of them all and they all checked out.
I then ejected the disk (using the eject command; this did not work correctly
with the first 2.2 kernels) and inserted an OS/2 HPFS disk.


The disk checked out with sfdisk, but I can't mount it (Linux' HPFS support
for these disks has never worked), so I ran a few commands to read data from
t, culminating with dd to make a file of its contents.

When I started dd, one of the other commands (strings, I think) was running,
so there was probably some thrashing at first


When dd finished, I could no longer read the partition table:
[root@dugite /root]# fdisk -l -b 2048 /dev/sda
[root@dugite /root]# fdisk -b 2048 /dev/sda

Unable to read /dev/sda
[root@dugite /root]# dmesg | tail

Before the last sfdisk, I ejected the disk using the button on the drive and
reinserted it.

[root@dugite /root]# uname -a
Linux dugite 2.4.0 #2 Wed Jan 10 08:06:30 WST 2001 i586 unknown
[root@dugite /root]#
fwiw I compiled the kernel targetting K6 with gcc 2.95.

The SCSI chipset is AIC7xxx.
