DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2003-09
Re: Prebinding for DragonFly/FreeBSD-4
Was this conversation started on the list in the middle? I seem to
have missed the context.
Could someone give a quick overview of the use of serial ATA in
FreeBSD/DragonFly? I know that the ATA driver has gone through several
incarnations. We are using incarnation #2 in DragonFly (the same as
4.8), while FreeBSD-5 is now on incarnation #3 (and having serious issues
with it). There was a lot of breakage between incarnation #1 (the wd
drivers) and #2, and between #2 and #3, which to me means that we have
to stick with what we have now and try to fix it verses, say, trying to
import the new infrastructure from FreeBSD-5.
The error below sounds like a DMA problem.
:Ok I got the 9/22 snapshot
:and it fails to boot beyond the following:
:ad0: 38166MB <WDC WD400BB-00DGA0> [77545/16/63] at ata0-master BIOSDMA
:WARNING: "ad" is usurping "ad"'s cdevsw
:ad1: READ command timeout tag=0 serv=0 - resetting
:ata0: resetting devices ..
:and then it hangs. I am sure its the SATA or something related to the
: NForce2 IDE controller causing this havoc.
