Assuming you did a true clean install with formatting the partitions you

Tried first an Update 9.0 -> 9.1, next two or three New 9.1
installations, fresh with formatting the same disk partitions.
But, still the same SCSI hardware problem, no difference.

Regarding SCSI devices I verified the following in my previous subject, see link:

On SuSE 9.1:
1. hwinfo --storage_ctrl
which list
20. Adaptec AHA-2940 U2W (IRQ11)
21. Adaptec 2904/AIC-7850 (IRQ5)

But the Yast/Hardware/SCSI controller tool did NOT list the Adaptec
2904/AIC-7850 SCSI controller (used for my devices). It listed only the
the AHA-2940 U2W controller (currently not used).

Didnt you try Yast Online Update??

Yes, I installed all 9.1 patches from YOU.

As orientation, in case you have not noted my latest "reply":

Therefore I did figure out that this have to be a current SuSE 9.1/YaST SCSI problem.

I am sorry to conclude that my upgrade from SuSE 9.0 Pro to 9.1 Pro has been waste of time and money for me, so far. The same I have to say about the free SuSE "Installation support".

The reason is that my SuSE 9.1 installation only detects 1 of my 3 SCSCI devices (as I wrote in another subject on this forum:

Yamaha 4416S CDRW recorder detected
HP DVD Writer 100i NOT detected
Epson 1640SU scanner NOT detected

.......Snipped the rest ..........
