ATA anomaly Question
Testing various PATA & SATA controllers under DragonFlyBSD 1.1 STABLE of
Add-on controllers, SATA:
- booting may report in dmesg: 'DMA limited to UDMA 33, non-ATA66 cable
None of the SATA controllers under test have PATA ports.
Same message can also occur with actual PATA controllers when the cable
is a proper UDMA-100,'
and can do so erratically when different 'race' of UDMA-100 drives are
on same cables as Master/Slave.
I would expect the MB ACPI to be 'blind' to add-on cards in this
respect, and seem to recall
that, at least at one time, the FreeBSD drivers defaulted to the 'safe'
PIO3 is showing up most often.
- Promise Fastrak S-150 TX-2 Plus is not detected by DragonFly.
Observations? guidance? advice?
