I had a 200MMX 128Ram AHA2940 with an IBM SCSI-HD and a Microstar MS-5164 Motherboard. On my SCSI-Disk is SuSE6.2 (kernel 2.2.10) installed. the system worked well.
Now I've got a new Motherboard with a AMD K6-2/400. the other Hardware is the same. Since I had changed the board and the CPU, during booting of Linux, after initializing of my SCSI host adapter he show me all devices which are connected to it and then he immediately changes to a black screen, with nothing. the monitor switchs into the powersave mode. rebooting isn't possible. Even a reset (by pushing the button) isn't possible I have to turn off my system for some seconds!
When I disconnect all devices from SCSI Host adapter, linux boots well (until it needs the disk), initializing of the SCSI adapter works well.
I wanted to reinstall Linux with the SUSE-Install disk (floppy and CD-Rom) but the same error occurs. With an old SuSE Install disk(Suse 6.1 with 2.2.5) it works fine.
may anybody helps me?
