  Package: boot-floppies
  Version: 2.1 (I think)

I have two different Adaptec scsi cards with two different problems, =
solve either of them and we'll be good to go.  The machine is a generic =
486 DX2 66 (I am experimenting with Linux on a "built out of junk parts =
system with the thought of using it for a file server at a later date) =
with 8Megs of ram, a 24x IDE CD Rom, standard floppy, and an old mono =
graphics card.  The disk subsystem has a 2gig HP SCSI drive connected to =
an Adaptec controller.  I've tried two separate controllers with =
differing results ....


Adaptec 2840VL (Vesa Local Bus)
The boot floppy seems to work OK until an error appears (and keeps on =
appearing to the point that I can't read the entire message for the =
scrolling) that goes something to the effect of:

(scsi0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
illegal ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ chip without first pausing the controller!

read the ~ as portions of the message that cannot be read on screen for =
the scrolling.

The card DOES seem to be correctly identified on boot as an Adaptec =
2840.
Using the command lines no_reset and no_probe at boot does not help - =
and causes other interesting problems.



My other card is an Adaptec 1520A

The A version of this card (and the 1522) have extended translation that =
never seems to be recognized by the system (I am using a 2gig drive).  =
This may be part of the problem, or just another wild goose. Similar in =
nature to problem # 41033, the install program refuses to partition the =
drive.  The drive has been wiped of all previous partitions by fdisk, =
and should be clean.


I am an admitted newby that would just like to get a system up so that I =
can try out the OS. Please consider this in your response ... I picking =
this up pretty fast, but I ain't proficient yet.

The bug you have reported has been fixed in the boot-floppies released
for potato, currently the unstable debian distribution.  If you get a
chance, please test these boot-floppies for the problem you reported.
We know of a number of other problems in unstable, however, so beware.

-- 
.....Adam Di Carlo....adam@onShore.com.....<URL:http://www.onShore.com/>

boot-floppies (2.2.0) unstable; urgency=low

  * major updates for potato:
    - potato updates for dependancies, etc. (closes: Bug#41866,
      Bug#44800, Bug#45362)
    - powerpc support
    - root and boot disks split for most architectures
    - new driver installation setup, driver disks split like base disks
    - kernel 2.2.x based, fixing numerous problems with the old kernels,
      and with tecra disks, which are no longer necessary
      (closes: Bug#36875, Bug#34949, Bug#39961, Bug#41456, Bug#37892)
    - selections mechanism is gone in favor of metapackages 
      (closes: Bug#33837, Bug#41408)
    - many i386 booting problems fixed in new upstream syslinux
      (closes: Bug#47101 et al)
  * maintainer for this software changed to debian-boot@lists.debian.org;
    it really is a joint effort
  * added pointerize i18n tools, moving our i18n system to gettext
  * Added support for nfs media type always being selectable.  When selected,
    the user is prompted to configure the network.
  * Removed some obsolete partition to filesystem mappings from libfdisk.
  * Fixed busybox halt routine to not call it's bdflush routine.  This 
    causes halt/reboot hangs on 2.2.11+ with kupdate
  * Modified prototype init_tab to spawn a shell and the final install
    script directly.  New login package broke passwordless access.
  * Fixed basedisks.sh problem with creating .../etc/network/spoof-protect.
  * Updates for serial console handling with new kbd and setserial
    packages.  Also identification of a serial console system to the
    final installation so keymapping is not attempted.
  * Disabled broken powerpc, sparc library reduction.
  * Fixed disksize boot-parameter default setting for systems that
    don't have it passed from the loader.
  * Moved powerpc to kernel 2.2.12, increased rescue disk size.  Haven't
    split rescue to boot/root yet.                                              
  * graphical dbootstrap option for framebuffer capable systems
  * debian/control: un-version the versioned dependancy on lynx, allowing
    lynx-ssl to work also (closes: Bug#38839); standards version 3.0.1.1
  * debian/rules: move to FHS
  * all arches use ext2 filesystems (no minix anymore)
  * Better serial console support, now autodetects if on serial and skips
    kbd config, etc. 
  * Fixed powerpc subarch detection to properly detect PReP and reduced to
    only use sed.
  * Error in checking of base system installation fixed, dbootstrap:
    main_menu.c, and extract_base.c. (closes: Bug#36947, Bug#38007)
  * Introduction of disksize boot-parameter, dbootstrap: main.com, and
    dbootstrap.h (closes: Bug#35729)
  * Rewritten tftpboot.sh to support many image formats (TFTP, TILO now).
  * Rewritten alternate kernel rules in top Makefile (should work for sparc &
    i386 arch at least).
  * Don't ask for setting hardware clock to local time on sparc arch (assume
    always GMT).  Other archs could undef LOCALTIME in dbootstrap.h to do so.
  * All dialog boxes are now centered on screen.
  * documentation: add powerpc

boot-floppies (2.1.11) unstable; urgency=low

  * Changes made by Martin Schulze <joey@debian.org> to provide proper
    German disk images.  Details follow:
    - Added support for a creator != maintainer, main Makefile and
      rootdisk.sh
    - Added detection for modules in main makefile since both minix
      support and loopback support is sufficient when provided as modules
      and kerneld/kmod
    - Extracted MSG_BOOT_MESSAGE_TEXT from all lang_<lang>.h files into a
      boot_message file.  This file will be converted by rootdisk.sh to
      use the proper charset which was required since it is displayed
      before Linux is loaded and thus the IBMPC charset is used on intel
      boxes.
    - Added support for boot_message to rootdisk.sh.  The routine for
      recoding the file was stolen from rescue.sh, well, the skeleton and
      ideas were.
    - Heavily updated de.po for root_profile, changed formattings, changed
      from "Du" to "Sie" which is more kind.
    - .bash_profile: Unset LANG before dselect is called to avoid Perl
      complain about locale.  This is a workaround and needs a proper fix
      for Perl!!!
    - Updated boot messages for SYSLINUX, changed formattings, changed
      from "Du" to "Sie" which is more kind.
    - Updated release_notes, changed formattings, changed from "Du" to
      "Sie".
    - kbdconfig.c: Turned all keyboard descriptions into defines in order
      to fit with our scheme of i18n.
    - Extended lang_C.h and lang_de.h to contain these descriptions.
    - partition_config.c: Added support for LINGUA/LANG when issuing
      `cfdisk'.  Same goes for `mkfs'.  Also added proper _test target so
      we can test this dialog locally as well.
    - Added new address and notice to README-Translators.
  * Updated and corrected English, German, Japanese and Russian 
    documentation (closes: Bug#38442, Bug#42124))
  * skip configuring the keyboard on serial console installation.
  * fixed a problem with non bootable floppy images on ultrasparc (new
    silo1440k-sun4u image required to build).  Compiled with silo 0.8.6-1 to
    fix a bug in booting SunOS on ultrasparc.

 -- Adam Di Carlo <aph@debian.org>  Sat, 26 Jun 1999 18:15:36 -0400

boot-floppies (2.1.10) stable; urgency=low

  * forked slink version (potato work now proceeding in the 2.2 tree)
  * rootdisk.sh: provide hde hdf hdg hdh devices on i386 (closes: Bug#34934);
    provide eda and edb devices for ESDI drives (closes: Bug#33938)
  * busybox/ls.c: include overflow protection patch from Avery Pennarun
    (closes: Bug#33781)
  * added PS/2 keymaps for sparc (closes: Bug#35649); fix problem in
    kbd support for PPC
  * fixes for /dev/console support in 2.2 kernel.  Note that 2.2 is still
    rather unofficial, although required for sun4u
  * busybox: mkswap handles v1 swap partition layouts (closes: Bug#34072)
  * debian/control: version the libc6-pic dependancy (closes: Bug#31797)
  * lowmem: update documentation, debian.txt now correctly states that
    this floppy is for RAM situations between 4MB and 6MB (closes: Bug#33145)
  * documentation:
    new build to pick up documentation changes in the 2.1.9.x series
      (closes: Bug#34691)
    correction in PDF makefiles; this was leading to bad TOCs
    low memory installation and lowmemrd.bin now better documented
      (closes: Bug#26626); when root.bin is needed better documented
    boot troubleshooting: add more hints, for hlt problems and lowmem on
      i386, bad NVRAM on sparc
    require debiandoc-sgml >= 1.1.18, for content negotiated output and
      non-English documentation
    languages now building documentation for: Croatian, Finnish, Japanese,
      French, Czech (not all these languages are fully translated)
