Problem with kernel on SATA hosts - RC?
I think there is a problem with kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686, but I'm not sure
whether I messed up something...
I installed sarge on a SATA host a while ago (Intel ICH, worked just
fine!). Now I upgraded from the installer's kernel-image-2.6.8-1-386 to
version 2.6.8-10 of the kernel-image-2.6.8-1-86 package.
The problem: The SATA code is built as modules in the regular kernel
package, but it mustn't be. You need the following kernel config:
config-2.6.8-1-386 from the package in the archive lists all these as "=m".
I suspect that the debian-boot folks realized what the problem was, but
didn't tell debian-kernel to build SATA into the kernel. Obviously, you
cannot load the SATA modules if you need the SATA code to access the hard
PS: ALSA does not work on that SATA machine with 2.6.8, only with 2.6.9.
