Sym53c8xx module active in X5000 kernels?

Postby Roland » Fri Jul 28, 2017 2:29 pm

Is the Sym53c8xx module, which can be found in sys/modules of Ubuntu 16.04, 'active' in any of the recent kernels for X5000...? If not, would it be complicated to switch on? I happened to found a controller board with that circuit, and would like to test it.

@Roland

Support is built in with my recent kernels.No modules required.
Have not tested as I don't have a SCSI controller of this type.

CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_2=y
CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_DMA_ADDRESSING_MODE=1
CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_DEFAULT_TAGS=16
CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_MAX_TAGS=64
CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_MMIO=y

Tested with Kernel 4.10.4 - it works! Also with Xeno's 4.9.39. Thank you!-)
