Package: gnumach
Version: 1.1.90-2

[ Hello Gordon. This weekend I tested Marcus' cross-install at home and it
worked great. Congratulations to everybody for all the hard work! ].

However, today I tried to do the same with the computer I have at work,
without success: The booting process hangs.

I think that the reason for this is that gnumach contains the "new"
adaptec drivers from Linux 2.0.36 (in fact, I can't install Debian 2.1
from scratch in my system because of this very reason).

If you could forward this upstream so that this is fixed in gnumach,
it would be great.

Thanks.

Hello santiago,

I don't understand what happens.

Does the system at work have Adaptec SCSI or not? If not, I can of course
remove the adaptec driver from GNU Mach, or you can use the gnumach-lean
that I uploaded to alpha some time ago to bootstrap the system (only ide
driver). But if it has Adaptec, we need to up or downgrade the Adaptec
driver in GNU Mach to a different version.

Can you give more information?
Marcus

It's very simple:

  • At home I don't have SCSI at all, and it works fine.
  • At work I have an Adaptec SCSI, with which Debian 2.1 rescue floppy

does not work, and gnumach does not work either.

Because of this, I guess that the Linux 2.0.36 drivers in gnumach are the
"real" reason it does not work, but of course I can't be 100% sure.

Thanks.

I'd be happy to replace the driver in the gnumach source, but I'd need
advice on exactly what to do. I take it the driver doesn't function
right in Linux either; by now there must be a fix, but I await advice
from someone who knows the details.

Hi Santiago,

Can you reproduce #35970 with the latest gnumach packages?

regards,
guillem

I don't know, and it is going to be quite difficult for me to check, because
the computer is currently running woody as a server for a lot of people...
