Re: Status of sym53c1010
I've run several 53c1010 chipsets on Alpha using >2.2.18 kernels (including
one 2.4 kernel rev) without a problem...often for hours on end. The driver
is quite stable and I've gotten good transfer rates out of it too :-)
As for the XP900, I'm not sure what they include in the SRM drivers,
although I wouldn't expect that they'd support the 1010. So, you'll
probably have to keep the QLogic around to boot off of, unfortunately.
Compaq (read: Jay) can probably tell you more about whether or not the SRM
for that model supports that card (I'm pretty sure it doesn't...correct me
if I'm wrong, Jay).
