Your questions helped me locate my problem... my ncr53c810 did not work
when I compiled the kernel with the Avanti option. But on the other hand
it worked fine with the Generic option! The next thing I did was to
compile the whole kernel with the Avanti "flags" and all the scsi related
drivers with the Generic "flags" ...but that didn't work either :(
According to the linux 2.4.17 help, the option avanti should be fine with
my AS 400 (4/233).
I use gcc 2.95.4 and I have potato with most of the packages upgraded to
unstable (I use this computer for testing).
with the generic 2.4.17 linux, the AS400 works fine but (as an
optimization freak) I want to make avanti optimizations work ...
What am I doing wrong?
Any hint would be highly appreciated
