PCI bus not detected
Posted on 1997-03-16
I've tried to install the Slackware 2.1 distribution packed into Infomagik set of August 96.
Booting aha2x4x.s and color.gz gets me to the root prompt, but the PCI devices are not recognized : scsi hosts : 0 and cat /proc/pci shows nothing...
So I've tempotrarily installed an EIDE HDD and installed linux on it. But again, nothing is seen on the PCI bus.
/var/adm/messages says :
...kernel: pcibios_init: BIOS32 Service Directory structure at 0x000fd5d0
" " : entry in high memory, unable to access
" " : no BIOS32 detected
It seems that pcibios_init() routine is in bios32.c module.
Since I don't have my EIDE disk anymore, I cannot go on investigating...
The system is a Digital Personnal Workstation 6200, which is a PPro-200, AHA2940UW SCSI adapter and a Matrox Millenium graphic adapter, both on the PCI bus.
None of them is detected by Linux.
I've posted twice on linux-setup and got no answer.
I know that other people complain about (same HW) it and got no solution either.
Thank's in advance for your help and bets regards !
