[sane-devel] HP ScanJet 4p (SCSI ncr53c400a) Help !
Sun, 5 May 2002 23:31:40 +0400
I've got the HP ScanJet 4p with SCSI card on SymbiosLogic ncr53c400a chip
And I have a big trouble with it :(
There are no problems using it under windows, but it doesn't work under linux
even using the suited driver.
I'm not sure this is the convenient mail-list for my question, but I'll try.
Under Win9x this card works and uses irq 9 and io 0x280.
In windows' .inf file I found the following:
IRQConfig = 3,4,5,7,9
I read that I should use g_NCR5380 driver for my chip.
And in /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/README.g_NCR5380 and g_NCR5380.c
it's written that I should use
for my card or I can add parameters for irq or/and io.
Also I can use irq=254 (autoprobe) or irq=255 (non irq).
I use Mandrake 8.2 (2.4.18), original kernel configuration. The SCSI support
in kernel is on.
This is the SCSI-related lines from .config for my kernel:
# SCSI low-level drivers
# CONFIG_SCSI_G_NCR5380_MEM is not set
I can load the base SCSI modules (sg and scsi_mod) and they don't have
any errors on load.
sg 30180 0 (unused)
scsi_mod 92488 1 [sg]
# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices: none
Trying to load g_NCR5380.o (it was present and installed with the
system), if I use
modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_53Ó400a=1
modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_53Ó400a=1 ncr_addr=0x280
modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_53Ó400a=1 ncr_addr=0x280 ncr_irq=9
modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_53Ó400a=1 all ncr_irq and ncr_addr couples
I get the error message:
/lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/kernel/drivers/scsi/g_NCR5380.o.gz: init_module: No
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.418-6mdk/kernel/drivers/scsi/g_NCR5380.o.gz
modprobe: insmod g_NCR5380 failed
If I use the following line from README.g_NCR5380
modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_irq=255 ncr_addr=0xc8000 ncr_53c400=1
or any other with ncr_53c400=1 and non-null adr/irq - the system hangs
immediately without any message.
There is one jumper on the card (unlabeled). I tried to change it, but
there wasn't any effect.
The pnpdump says "no cards found" with any jumper position.
What can I try now to make this card work?
Can anybody help me, please !
(I can't change the card...)
Thanks in advance !
