using an Adaptec SlimSCSI 1480B I get these
kernel messages, when inserting the card
cs: cb_enable(bus 6)
bridge io map 0 (flags 0x21): 0x800-0x8ff
bridge mem map 0 (flags 0x1): 0x60020000-0x60030fff
aic7xxx: PCI6:0:0 MEM region 0x60030000 in use. Cannot map device.
ahc_pci:6:0:0: Host Adapter Bios disabled. Using default SCSI device parameters
scsi0 : Adaptec AIC7XXX EISA/VLB/PCI SCSI HBA DRIVER, Rev 6.1.5
<Adaptec 1480A Ultra SCSI adapter>
aic7860: Single Channel A, SCSI Id=7, 3/255 SCBs
According to the PCMCIA-HOWTO I tried to do some settings in
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts (but I'm not sure I did it the right
way, since my knowledge about kernel internals is not the best,
I have some difficulties to understand this part of the HOWTO).
+^Ho The Adaptec APA-1480 CardBus card needs a large IO port window (256
contiguous ports aligned on a 256-port boundary). It may be
necessary to expand the IO port regions in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts
to guarantee that such a large window can be found.
# System resources available for PCMCIA devices
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff
# I tried this additionally for Adaptec SlimSCSI 1480B
include memory 0x60030000-0xa0030000
include memory 0x00000800-0x000008ff
Additionally I read the recent bug reports, and followed the
recommendation, to use the card only together with the cable.
My kernel is 2.4.3 (PCMCIA disabled) PCMCIA-CS 3.1.25
(BTW: with kernel 2.4.2 and PCMCIA-CS 3.1.24 I got a kernel panic
with this card)
Could you please explain the part of the HOWTO mentioned above
in more detail? Or even better give a working example?
That section of the HOWTO does not refer to your problem, and I am not familiar with the error message you're getting. I have not actually tried this card with a 2.4.3 (or even 2.4.2) kernel.
