[issue566] NATA a nonstarter with ATI SB600 on MSI K9AGM-FID
Joe "Floid" Kanowitz <email@example.com> added the comment:
Two new 'developments:'
-Finally gave in/gave up and ordered some PATA-to-SATA bridges last week, so
I'll be able to test the theory that this is only a problem with the legacy PATA
controller when they arrive.
-Just tried the new -PREVIEW with the big NATA update, and things haven't
improved much if at all for this configuration. I can "sort of" boot (if I can
avoid fsck, e.g. single-user), the disk comes up in UDMA33, ICRC errors galore,
I couldn't convince natacontrol to raise it *above* UDMA33, but trying to choose
BIOSDMA took it all the way back to PIO4, which seems to be stable enough for me
to build a kernel with the old driver like I should've done before I embarked on
Pretty sure the channels still aren't showing an IRQ assigned, also pretty sure
the (cosmetic) sb600.diff ID patch in the bugtracker didn't make it into the tree.
Still pretty disorganized over here, I'll try to log things methodically when
the SATA parts arrive.
