managed to get the raid controller half working..
when my linux distro (pmagic) boots, as far as i can tell it sees the hard disks and attempts to mount it as scsi2 but then it fails saying:
3w-xxxx: scsi2: Command failed: status = 0xc7, flags = 0x59, unit #0 sd 2:0:0:0: WARNING: Command (0x28) timed out, resetting card.
and then just hangs there and is unresponsive to
ctrl, alt + delete so probably kernel panic?
I'm assuming unit# 0 indicates there is a fault with the hard disk in position 0 on the raid controller. But surely if that was the case then would the raid controller not have let it through?
also any ideas what the flags and status are? ive tried searching google but keeps returning random errors from irrelavent sources. Cheers
