------- Comment #7 from jim@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 2007-02-07 19:25 MST -------
Thanks :-) I do not have 4GB of RAM in my current machine, only 1.5GB, but the
system drive will be transferred to a new system with 4GB in the future, so
it's worth a go :-)

>From the addressing in the diff file I presume I can apply it as a patch from
the /usr/src/linux directory (it's been a while since I played with diff files,
back on HP-UX 9 I think !).

Maybe as root ...

cd /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx
patch -b <path_to/aic79xx-use-dma-required-mask

or patch -b -d /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx \
<path_to/aic79xx-use-dma-required-mask

As this is a driver do I need a Windoze style reboot for it to become active ?

Thanks

Jim
