Can anyone please give me some instructions as how to modify the NetBSD
SCSI driver so that it sends explicit 'start unit' commands to a disk it
detects during the SCSI bus scan ?
I've a DEC RZ55 on my HP9000/375 that won't spin-up all by itself during
system boot :-( It's OK for me to net-boot the machine as long as I can
use some local storage (for /usr/src and swap at least). I've so far tried
to understand what's going on during the startup but now I'm even more
I've found my drive listed in some sort of table that contains
ill-behaving SCSI devices but have been unable to sort out what options
need to be set to enable the behaviour I need...
