A little background:
I bought before I researched :) - oh well - I have
this Syquest SyJet 1.5GB drive here. I've read a
little about how this driver never really made it
into prime-time, but thats fine with me, I only
want to do simple backups with it.
I use RH6.0 - with 2.2.5-15.
I applied ppSCSI-0.91.patch. Compiled the modules.
I do this:
#insmod sd_mod (I made a guess here that I need this,
#insmod ppscsi (no problems)
#insmod epst (no problems)
This is what I could find in /var/log/messages:
Sep 18 17:48:06 dreaserv kernel: ppSCSI 0.91 (0.91)
Sep 18 17:48:21 dreaserv kernel: epst.1: epst 0.91
(0.91), Shuttle EPST at 0x378 mode 2 (PS/2) dly 1 nice
0 sg 16
Sep 18 17:48:21 dreaserv kernel: scsi1 : epst
Sep 18 17:48:21 dreaserv kernel: scsi : 2 hosts.
Sep 18 17:48:25 dreaserv kernel: epst.1: Bus reset
The output of 'cat /proc/scsi/epst/1'
ident: epst 0.91 (0.91), Shuttle EPST
base port: 0x378
mode name: PS/2
I'm a little embarrased, but I really don't know what
device I should be using when I use fdisk. I've tried
/dev/sda1-4 and /dev/sdb1-4 without success, the
message I get is "Unable to open /dev/xxx"
The cartridge was new/wrapped, never used on dos - but
I believe they come formatted for dos, don't they?
Don't know if it matters, but I use ide-scsi for my
CDR - which works great, so I don't do 'insmod
Is there somewhere I could go for more information?
My plan was to use fdisk the same way I use it for
hard drives, and mount/unmount the same way as well -
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
