This is an older ISA PNP device and it will not detect device nor will kudzu find this device. Dmesg show the device as being there:
Activating ISA DMA hang workarounds.
pci_hotplug: PCI Hot Plug PCI Core version: 0.5
isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
isapnp: Card 'SYM 53C416'
isapnp: 1 Plug & Play card detected total
Real Time Clock Driver v1.12
but cat/proc/scsi/scsi shows
I have a Castlewood Orb Drive attatched and it's not being recognized because Linux is not assigning IRq's and addresses to the SCSI card. What more can I do?
I have modprobe sym53c8xx in my rc.local( I tried sg for SCSI Generic); the SCSI subsystem loads but there are no scsi devices in my dev.
I also tried assigning some IRQ's to the device in the bios and done a modprobe sym53c8xx sym53c8xx=0x220,5 ...maybe the wrong ones were chosen
