View Full Version : Fedora 11 and aic7xxx problem

23rd August 2009, 05:51 AM
I just installed Fedora 11 on an AMD CPU PC. I get the following error during boot up.

Aug 22 21:42:07 dragon8 kernel: aic7xxx: probe of 0000:00:0a.0 failed with error -38

Because the aic7xxx has the error, it does not load the st module. I manually loaded the st module, but the /dev/st? devices do not get created, I assume because of the aix7xxx error.

I can access the Adaptec AHA-2940W Bios during boot up and see the 2 tape drives that are connected to it.

I hope someone has a solution to this problem.

Is one of the drives terminated?

I don't think either is. There is a terminator pack at the end of the 4 connector cable. I will have to do some checking to see if one or both of the drives have an internal terminator active.

Thanks for the reply.
