May 17, Posts: Try Mylex, Symbios, Tekram, or other brands” I hear these types of comments all the time and my rebuttal to them is always the same, If a product works as advertised and never breaks down then it IS NOT overrated and or overpriced. OTOH, the UW that I have in my old machine is completely bullet-proof and the only times that I make coasters with the burner connected through it is when I do something totally stupid like copy files thru my network to the same drive that the CD writer is using. While the core FreeBSD kernel and base system components are generally fairly robust, there are likely to still be rough edges, particularly with third party packages. I’ve seen a few complaints in regards to Tekram. I look at this differently then most, I can’t afford to have HW failures on a regular basis, I’d go broke servicing them.

As for OS support that someone mentioned. Hell if I know, I don’t live in that world. Sat Apr 15, 3: EISA adapters are not supported. The uart 4 driver supports the following classes of UARTs:.
Generally, drivers that already function correctly on other bit platforms should work.
Tekram itself has drivers for just about every x86 OS in existance on their site. The default FreeBSD scheduler treats the logical processors the same adaptwc additional physical processors; in other words, no attempt is made to optimize scheduling decisions given the shared resources between logical processors within the same CPU.

I know they are expensive, but as the old adage states “You get what you pay for”. Nevertheless, some general guidelines are presented here.
FreeBSD RELEASE Hardware Notes
The dc 4 driver provides support for the following chipsets:. Try Mylex, Symbios, Tekram, or other brands.
If anything Adaptec has become a bit more Windows centric, especially with their RAID controllers being a mostly software driven chipset anyway. I don’t mind using good products that cost less. The scc 4 driver supports the following classes of SCCs:.
ADAPTEC AHA2940U2W…IS IT WORTH IT?
Fri Apr 14, 1: This isn’t to say the others don’t produce good products at good prices. The following codecs have been verified to work: Both prices are in Australian and are Araptec versions.
Adaptec has already begun phasing out the x product line in favor of their Ultra series. Adapters supported by the rl 4 driver include:. Sun Apr 16, 8: The Ultra SCSI controller chips supported by the mpt 4 driver can be found onboard on many systems including:. Feb 12, Posts: BMF Yes, but Adaptec is much more expensive than the alternatives.
Thu Apr 13, 3: In Aust, we all voted for a new tax system that will be implemented in July. This feature places constraints on the device zdaptec and other features of FreeBSD which may be used; consult the pae 4 manpage for more details. Thu Apr 13, 6: Adaptec is supported by all operating systems out of the box try getting odd-ball SCSI cards working under BeOS or Linuxand the reliability and build quality is excellent.
The use of ACPI causes instabilities on some machines and it may be necessary to disable the ACPI driver, which is normally loaded via a kernel module. This file, and other release-related documents, can be downloaded from http: The acpi 4 manual page has more information on how to do this via loader adaptc.
I can’t give a personal opinion of Tekram because I’ve never used one, but I’ve used over Adaptec cards.
