NAME

aic — Adaptec AIC-6260 and AIC-6360 SCSI driver

SYNOPSIS

device aic In /boot/device.hints: hint.aic.0.at="isa"

DESCRIPTION

The aic driver provides support for the Adaptec AIC-6260 and AIC-6360 SCSI controller chips. Many systems that use these controller chips do not have a boot ROM and therefore cannot be booted from.

HARDWARE

The adapters supported by the aic driver include: · Adaptec AHA-1505 (ISA) · Adaptec AHA-1510A, AHA-1510B (ISA) · Adaptec AHA-1520A, AHA-1520B (ISA) · Adaptec AHA-1522A, AHA-1522B (ISA) · Adaptec AHA-1535 (ISA) · Creative Labs SoundBlaster SCSI host adapter (ISA) · Adaptec AHA-1460, AHA-1460B, AHA-1460C, AHA-1460D (PC Card) · Adaptec AHA-1030B, AHA-1030P (PC98) · NEC PC-9801-100 (PC98)

BUGS

The driver does not work well with multiple devices on the SCSI bus. The driver works well with devices like CDROMs and Tape drives. The driver works not so well with disk drives. The PC Card version appears to work better than the ISA version, but that may be due to dif‐ fering levels of testing of the devices.
