So that explains why I could not find the aha1542 module !
However I can't get it to recognise my SCSI disks ...
If I do a man -k scsi , it says there is:
lsscsi( 8 )
But man lsscsi / man 8 lsscci or just lsscsi all fail.
... I tested the SCSI setup was OK, by unplugging the IDE disks ... it boots (win95) from the SCSI (so cables/ termination etc are all OK)
During the boot ... it takes AGES probing the SCSI bus for devices .... felt like termination problem ... maybe the wrong SCSI
driver is probing?
The reason that "man lsscsi" fails is that the lsscsi package isn't installed on VL by default. However, you can install the Slackware-12.0 package of lsscsi on your VL 5.9 box with no problems whatsoever. Here is a link to the lsscsi download page from the Slackware package browser: http://packages.slackware.it/package.php?q=12.0/lsscsi-0.19-i486-1
Once you've found a Slackware mirror that is geographically close to you, download the package. Once you've downloaded the package, open a terminal, become root via the su command, and then type installpkg lsscsi-0.19-i486-1.tgz
at the prompt (assuming your current working directory is the same one where the lsscsi package was downloaded.
You might want to post the output of lsmod in this thread, partly so that you can see what modules are loaded but also so that we can see whether any additional SCSI-related modules are being loaded.
