Tiny core unable to see scsi disk
« on: March 24, 2019, 04:27:13 PM »
Hi All

I have seen variations of this but most examples were Virtual machines and the solutions was use sata or IDE disk.
Although I am using a virtual machine to test the target is a IBM blade with the bellow controller:

0b:00.0 SCSI storage controller [0100]: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1064ET PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS [1000:0056] (rev 10)

I have added the following extensions with the exception of sg3-utils.tcz which was not part of the recent list.

scsi-3.0.3-tinycore.tcz
raid-dm-3.0.3-tinycore.tcz
mdadm.tcz
sg3-utils.tcz

I added to /mnt/sda1/tce/optional
then added the entries to the onboot
The extensions are loaded as tce-status -i shows them.

lsmod does not show any of the scsi modules.

Do I need to load the modules manually?

Any other reason

Hi gerardn
The first thing you need to do is to decide on which version of Tinycore you want to run. The  extensions.png  attachment shows
extensions from kernel version 4..14.10 which are from TC9. The last line in that image shows a path that reads
 /lib/modules/4.19.10-tinycore  which is from TC10.
... I have added the following extensions with the exception of sg3-utils.tcz which was not part of the recent list.

scsi-3.0.3-tinycore.tcz
raid-dm-3.0.3-tinycore.tcz
mdadm.tcz
sg3-utils.tcz ...
Those extensions are for kernel version 3.0.3 which are from TC4. You cant blindly mix extensions from different versions of
Tinycore, especially kernel specific extensions.

You also didn't say which hypervisor you are using.

Thanks guys.

I decided to recompile the kernel without module support.  The kernel is huge 22 M but it does everything I want now.
