I'm not sure, but I think there might be something wrong with the wd33c93
I have acquired through creative means a 700MB SCSI disk from work. I
repartitioned it from Irix, and mounted it as an EFS partition under Irix
just fine. That would seem to indicate that everything is alright with
the hardware itself.
So, I go into Linux andd try to mke2fs it. It seems to work for a bit,
then dies with something like:
SCSI disk error : host 0 channel 0 id 6 lun 0 return code 2800000
Current error sd08:21: sense key Hardware Error
Additional sense indicates Address mark not found for id field
scsidisk I/O error: dev 08:21, sector 10
scsi0: MEDIUM ERROR on channel 0, id 6, lun 0, CDB: Request Sense 00 00 00
Current error sd08:21: sense key Medium Error
Additional sense indicates Recorded entity not found
scsidisk I/O error: dev 08:21, sector 108
scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 17577, scsi0, id 6, lun 0
Write (6) 12 bb a2 f4 00
scsi0: Aborting connected command 17577 - stopping DMA - sending wd33c93
ABORT command - flushing fifo - asr = 25, sr=ff, 16777215 bytes
un-transferred (timeout=-1) - sending wd33c93 DISCONNECT command = asr=00,
And the whole thing is hung, hard.
I'd be willing to accept that my drive is unhealthy, but I'm a bit
surprised as it seems to work just fine under Irix.
