I have received no response to this post either here on the mailing
list nor on several locations on the forums. I suspect (fear?) that
I'm the only person encountering this problem.
I am still desirous of having my boot volume be a SCSI drive, so I
installed Ubuntu to an IDE drive without the SCSI card installed. I
then installed the SCSI card and Ubuntu recognized it...aic7xxx was
listed in 'lsmod'. I dd'd the IDE drive to the SCSI drive and I
suppose if I decide to pursue this, I'll have to hack around in Open
Firmware/yaboot to get it booting from the SCSI drive.
Does anyone know if Hoary's CD will use a different aic7xxx module or
if, at least, the installer won't hang if a SCSI card is present?
