Promise SATAI150 TX4 not visible to sarge debian-kernel 2.6.8-2 even with modprobe. Does work with etch 2.6.12-1 kernel
I am setting up a server with SATA drives. I will use software raid 1, thus
don't care about "bios" "raid".
I tried the Highpoint 1520 cards. I discovered that they need the proprietary
hpt driver downloaded from their site. It currently does work with 2.6.8-2
kernels after you copy it over the hpt366.ko module and rerun mkinitrd to
trick the kernel. I moved on :).
I read that the Promise SATAI150 TX4 4channel SATA controller has
kernel support is listed as "production level" in the Linuxmafia Sata Faq.
I report that the device is not visible to debian-kernel 2.6.8-2 even with
modprobe of the sata_promise module. I see on lsmod the relevant modules are
up and still no devices.
However I got the card to work instantly by installing the etch
2.6.12-1-386 kernel. I got immediate recognition of drives etc.
How do I report a bug to the debian-kernel team?
