Advansys SCSI host adapter not detected

Bug #129660 reported by Nick Booker on 2007-08-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

There appears to be a problem with HAL not picking up the SCSI Host Adapter
device on the Advanced System Products, Inc "ABP940-U / ABP960-U" device (driver: advansys). Hence, none of the drives are displayed either.

I'm trying to query HAL to find all optical drives, but I find no drives
or host adapters are reported by HAL for this SCSI card, whether by looking at lshal, the GNOME Hardware Information panel, or my own queries for optical drives through Python's dbus module.

The Silicon Image and 6300ESB SATA hosts in the system are picked up fine, along with all of their SCSI host adapter and storage devices.

The "ACP940-U / ABP960-U" device *is* listed as a PCI device, but with no children.

The drives do work and are detected by cdrecord, as shown below. The SCSI host in question is scsibus2 in the following dump.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make
Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue
for you? Can you try with latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.
