Re: sym1:0: wide asynchronous


there is a TI sync negotiation jumper. I thought the host adapter would initiate the negotiation. Maybe this feature only works on x86-Systems. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Because the async mode is used I only get 14MB/s. How can I set it to 
sync mode. I'm new to the Alpha and SCSI-world.
Isn't there a jumper at the harddisk to set the sync mode on/off?
