Hi: I have installed FreeBSD 6.3 RELEASE via FTP to a Sager P8880 Notebook computer I aquired cheap, and without an OS; 2.4ghz Pentium IV (desktop unit) half gig memory, cd r/w 30gig hd, firewire.... lots of good stuff.
Installer set things up almost perfectly with all my favorite apps... XORG .. KDE ..... Even the TV Tuner and the touch-pad works! What doesn't work, I don't know if there is a fix for. This sager has an MP3 player which pops out of the side. The Idea obviously, is to put music into it's memory stick (detachable) and go jogging with your favorite tunes. I would like to get this last item working if possible. Here is what happens: =============================== booting .. FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE #0: Wed Jan 16 04:45:45 UTC 2008 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP i386 da0: <NEWTREND MMC READER BULK 2.01> Removable Direct Access SCSI-0 device da0: 1.000MB/s transfers da0: 29MB (60800 512 byte sectors: 64H 32S/T 29C) [...] umass0: Get Max Lun not supported (SHORT_XFER) umass0: Phase Error, residue = 0 umass0: BBB reset failed, STALLED umass0: BBB bulk-in clear stall failed, STALLED umass0: BBB bulk-out clear stall failed, STALLED (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): Synchronize cache failed, status == 0x4, scsi status == 0x0 umass0: BBB reset failed, STALLED <<<============= Here popped the player out of the laptop umass0: at uhub0 port 2 (addr 2) disconnected (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): lost device umass0: detached (da0:dead_sim0:0:0:0): removing device entry ============================= I think the "Direct Access SCSI-0" entry is the key? Is there a SCSI loadable module I could try? Is there a probe I could use to possibly match this hardware with a driver?
