Re: Tape on a i2o SCSI not seen.

Hello Ciao,

I have exactally the same problem on Fedora 3. The driver i20_block do not reconized the SCSI Tape. So, after some tests I recompile de kernel, with version 2.6.11 from fedora source, and desmark i20 drivers and mark dpt drivers.

After compilation all devices are detected and worked corretctally.

Subject: Tape on a i2o SCSI not seen.


I have a problem with a DPT i2o SCSI adapter it has a RAID 5 set and a HP tape and it worked without problems with Fedora 1. Recently I had to reinstall and I used FC3, now the tape is not seen anymore. I tried to use the Rescue mode of FC1 and it was still there so no HW problems. The difference seems to be that FC1 used the dpt_i2o driver while FC3 uses i2o_block and it seems it doesn't work properly, it doesn't even show in /proc/scsi, and dmesg shows this:

Is there a known problem or do I need some options in the configuration? Or maybe there is a different driver for other devices attached to the i2o.

Thanks for any help.
