 Micronics W6LI only fit for use as fan heater
Has anybody had any success with this board?  For what it cost, I would
have hoped that it would work well with Linux, but this does not appear
to be the case.  I can only run a UP kernel - SMP kernels loop endlessly
resetting the SCSI bus during the SCSI bus probe.

The W6LI has an on-board Adaptec AIC-7880 and uses the aic7xxx driver.

I have tried the following kernels:

     2.2.5-15     RH 6.0 default install     works fine
     2.2.5-15smp  RH 6.0 rpm                 SCSI Reset loop
     2.2.10       Home build                 SCSI Reset loop
     2.2.13       Home build                 SCSI Reset loop

Can anyone help or do I have to stick to using only one of the
processors whilst the other heats the room?

Cheers,

     T.

 Micronics W6LI only fit for use as fan heater
Here in comp.os.linux.hardware, tauru...@my-deja.com
spake unto us, saying:

My Micron Millenia Pro2 Plus system (PPro/200) uses an OEM variant of
the Micronics W6Li motherboard (it has no SCSI controller), and I've
installed several Linux flavors on it without problems (as well as
Windows 95 and OS/2).

I only have a single processor in this box, however, and as it had no
built-in SCSI controller I use an Adaptec AHA-2940U instead.

Twins!  So what do you call a W6Li with SCSI?

I have had some success of late - I built a 2.0.38 kernel with SMP and
the {*filter*}y thing boots!  Sadly X dies most horribly as its intended
for my 2.2 kernel...

Please, please, can anyone help me get my 2nd processor working.

Cheers,

X is not dependent on your kernel version. The same X server
will work fine under 2.2 and under 2.0 kernels (modulo some very
very mild finger-crossing connected with /dev/mtyx or whatever
the pseudo tty device multiplexer is now called.)

Post the errors.

It still hangs, all the same...

In all cases with SMP 2.2 Kernels, the system gets as far as probing
the SCSI bus and then goes into an SCSI Reset loop:

   ...
   scsi : 1 host.
   scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi0, channel 0, id
0, lun 0 Test Unit Ready 00 00 00 00 00
   SCSI host 0 abort (pid 0) timed out - resetting
   SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.
   SCSI host 0 channel 0 reset (pid 0) timed out - trying harder
   SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.
   ...

I have tried the RH 6.0 SMP kernel (2.2.5) plus 2.2.10 and 2.2.13
kernels which I have built myself - no joy.  I have tried compiling
aic7xxx both as part of the kernel and as a module loaded from initrd.

The system is SCSI based, so booting without SCSI is not an option.
This also means that I can't capture dmesg output.

I'm out of ideas - any suggestions appreciated.

Cheers,

    T.
