Hello, *,

I found it out by myself. All you need to do is to install Solaris 7 (in
which the luxadm is dumb enough to flash every binary file to the card),
take the latest firmware patch and flash it. Of course, you have to have the
SUNWifp package installed and the entry "ifp pci1077,2100" in the

To make luxadm recognize the QLogic 2100F-Card, you have to fake the entry
in /devices/pci@...

Normaly, you have a /devices/pci@4,4000/scsi@2:devctl. Rename this to
/devices/pci@4/SUNW,ifp@2:devctl (path may vary) and luxadm will be able to
flash it with luxadm qlgc_s_download.
