Re: Debian and Adaptec 294x

 Thank you for your message,
well you have shown that a newer kernel does not solve the problem.
Could you be so kind to try another kernel, this time the kernel is made
from kernel-source-2.0.36-3 with the supplied .config.save but without
7000FASST SCSI support.

It was done by theese steps:

# cp .config.save .config
# make menuconfig # remove 7000FASST SCSI support
# make dep; make clean; make bzImage
# cp /xx/debian/dists/slink/main/disks-i386/2.1.9-1999-03-03/resc1440.bin .
# mount -o loop resc1440.bin /mnt
# cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /mnt/linux 
# /mnt/rdev.sh
+ set -e
+ readonly Arch=i386
+ Arch=i386
+ '[' i386 '!=' m68k ']'
+ rdev -R /mnt/linux 1
+ rdev -r /mnt/linux 0
+ rdev -v /mnt/linux -1
+ rdev /mnt/linux /dev/ram0
# umount /mnt
# mv resc1440.bin resc1440.bin-without-wd7000

I will make it available as
in a few minutes.

Use it together with the standard
and please report back to debian-testing any success or failure.
