I have my `Not detecting SCSI drive' problem again. I compiled a
2.2.12 kernel with ncr53c8xx support, but it doesn't detect a new
Seagate 18 GB Cheetah LVD disk added on ID 2; It only detects the
original disk as sda1. The AlphaBIOS, a 2-year old MILO and a
2.0.30 Red Hat generic kernel all detect the new disk correctly.
Any ideas what to try next? I used the 2.0.30 kernel to install
slink and want to upgrade to 2.2.12 and potato. I'm stuck with
2.0.30 if I can't detect that new disk (on which slink resides).
(I even tried to compile the 2.0.30 ncr53c8xx driver in 2.2.12
but got uncompatible PCI code errors).
