CONFIG_SCSI_AIC7XXX_OLD: Adaptec AIC7xxx support (old driver)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SCSI_AIC7XXX_OLD:

Help text

WARNING This driver is an older aic7xxx driver and is no longer under active development. Adaptec, Inc. is writing a new driver to take the place of this one, and it is recommended that whenever possible, people should use the new Adaptec written driver instead of this one. This driver will eventually be phased out entirely.

This is support for the various aic7xxx based Adaptec SCSI controllers. These include the 274x EISA cards; 284x VLB cards; 2902, 2910, 293x, 294x, 394x, 3985 and several other PCI and motherboard based SCSI controllers from Adaptec. It does not support the AAA-13x RAID controllers from Adaptec, nor will it likely ever support them. It does not support the 2920 cards from Adaptec that use the Future Domain SCSI controller chip. For those cards, you need the "Future Domain 16xx SCSI support" driver.

In general, if the controller is based on an Adaptec SCSI controller chip from the aic777x series or the aic78xx series, this driver should work. The only exception is the 7810 which is specifically not supported (that's the RAID controller chip on the AAA-13x cards).

Note that the AHA2920 SCSI host adapter is *not* supported by this driver; choose "Future Domain 16xx SCSI support" instead if you have one of those.

Information on the configuration options for this controller can be found by checking the help file for each of the available configuration options. You should read Documentation/scsi/aic7xxx_old.txt at a minimum before contacting the maintainer with any questions. The SCSI-HOWTO, available from, can also be of great help.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called aic7xxx_old.
