st15150n (4GB FAST SCSI hard disk) problems on an 8500
few days ago tried installing woody onto an 8500.
found out that there was some bad ram, so i tried the same HD in a different
8500 with NEW RAM (256MB).
install went just fine, however, the kernel would report SCSI disk errors at
random intervals (often when booting).... i was able to get the base system
installed, however the machine crashed a few times while trying to extract
the kernel src from a tar archive. (reporting numerous SCSI errors on the
i have tested this drive like crazy... and it *seems* fine.... linux seems
to install without any problems onto Apple firmware HDs...however all of the
ones that i have are only 2GB... and i would like to take advantage of this
fast 4gb Seagate....
after doing some research i dug up this
that said something about a potential bug in the drive's firmware...
has anyone had any experience with this drive not behaving?
(also, i have tried messing with the jumpers on the drive itself -
pertaining to termination.)
