Re: Bug#281843: sarge-i386 2.4 kernel on AMD64 install report
I discovered the solution to this problem.
The info below refers to a 64-bit install but I think it's relevant to
i386 install with 2.6 kernel:
The Gigabyte GA-K8NS Pro motherboard has four points you can plug a SATA
They are SATA0_SB and SATA1_SB, both controlled by the onboard nVIDIA
nForce3 250 chipset. I tried one of these and had no luck with 2.6
kernel, sarge i386 or sid-amd64. Could not detect my Seagate ST380013AS
Then there are SATA0_SII and SATA1_SII, both controlled by the built-in
Silicon Image Sil3512 chipset. I swapped the cable into SATA0_SII socket
and rebooted. Straight away the drive was detected:
scsi3 : sata_sil
Vendor: ATA Model: ST380013AS Rev: 3.18
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 05
SCSI device sda: 156299375 512-byte hdwr sectors (80025 MB)
SCSI device sda: drive cache: write back
/dev/scsi/host2/bus0/target0/lun0: p1 p2 < p5 p6 p7 p8 p9 >
Attached scsi disk sda at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
I am able to mount the drive.
The network, sound, video and USB drivers are all working and the
Firewire controller is recognised.
