I just downloaded the cdhdtape and burnt it onto a CD and booted my
Jensen.. Same result as before, it detects my hardware perfectly but hangs
after reporting the floppy drive geometry. Sigh...
From what others have said I believe that at this point is when it tries
to detect the installed hard disk(s). I have a 1 GB drive (ancient Seagate I
think) that works perfectly under RH 6.2/7.0.
The controller is the AHA-1742A Rev G (tried Rev H as well) that get
properly detected at eisa0, IRQ 12. Is there anyway that someone could dig
up the "patch" that was mentioned a while back or is there a boot argument
that I could give it that would help? It must be partly talking to the
controller as the floppy disk get detected.
I even considered shipping one of my Jensens to someone who has better
kernal hacking abilities than I but the hassel and expense is probably not
So close and yet so far,
