SCSI Disc Read-Only

i have Arch linux installed on my SCSI disc (Seagate Cheetah 18GB)
my controler is

Adaptec AHA-2940U/UW / AHA-39xx / AIC-7895 (rev 04)

working on kernel 2.6.15-ARCH (from 0.7.1 installation CD)
with default initrd ....

sometimes i get error like

(scsi0:A:0:0): Unexpected busfree in Data-out phase
SEQADDR == 0x7d
sd 0:0:0:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x10000
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 664214
Buffer I/O error on device sda3, logical block 6718
lost page write due to I/O error on sda3

and my filesystem goes read-only ... after reset everything goes back to normal ... how i can prevent going read-only on "/" and restarting my linux ?

Re: SCSI Disc Read-Only

have a look wether mkinitrd put aic7xxx along with aic79xx into the ramdisk. if so, they are most likely conflicting with each other. hmm

i suggest to exclude one of them in mkinitrd.conf.

Re: SCSI Disc Read-Only

id recommend going into scsi setup & verify the disc
it will reassign any bad sectors
i have the same scsi card with 2  73gb  10000 rpmm used drives on it with no problems so far (knock knock) check it out theyre pretty cheap the 2 i got are quiet & good condition … T173404LCV
the disc verify may cause some data loss or corruption if any sectors are bad &  reassigned
if not then it shouldnt damage any data on disc 
ive not had any sectors reassigned on my current drives but i have had it in the past with no data on disc so i couldnt say for sure what outcome you may experience

Re: SCSI Disc Read-Only

well disabling one of modules doesn't help
i created my own initrd with


and only this module is loadedfor my scsi controller
but i still get error

after error i restarted my computer and runned

Drive Verify

in SCSI Controller Setup (Ctrl-A at start up) and and drive was veryfied without  any error so i guess that isn't my drive problem hmm

maybe will help that after this error my linux doesn't hang-up .. just FS goes readonly .. i still can read every file on disc .. just cannot write to them hmm

... after restart everything is ok for about 2-3 days ....

please help ..
