I installed a new disk yesterday and run into SCSI problems of some kind.
I'm running NetBSD 1.0 (not beta, but the problem was the same with beta2
when I tried it) on A3000 with 16 MB RAM and two disks (IBM Spitfire and
Quantum Empire 1080).
I was copying a (large) file from one partition to another, both located
on the IBM drive. Several times during the copy, the system locked up
for approximately 15 seconds at a time, printing an error message to the
comsole. Here's what the system said:
Dec 3 19:47:03 muikku /netbsd: ahsc0: abort go: csr = 0x41, asr = 0x00
Dec 3 19:47:03 muikku /netbsd: sbicwait TIMEO @416 with asr=x0 csr=x41
The same message was repeated every time the system locked up. Eventually
the file got copied and appeared to be OK.
What does this error mean? Can I do something about it? I don't like
my system locking up when someone copies a file :-I
Otherwise, both drives seem to work just fine.
