Hi, I am running etch amd64 on ASUS A8V-VM which is similar
(same south bridge).

Please let me know:

- what performance do you get on this SATA II?
(check that you have enough space for 2 GiB test.dat in /tmp
or change the path to sth. else)
dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/test.dat bs=1M count=2048
dd of=/dev/null if=/tmp/test.dat bs=1M count=2048

- did you try or plan to use the fake RAID (with dmraid)?
(dmraid version I've tested could not always recognize the
metadata in the new format, but SW-RAID has it's advantages

- does the sound work without problems?

- does the graphics function without problems?
- which driver do you use?

My configuration:

CPU: Athlon X2
RAM: 2 x 1GiB RAM 400 MHz Kingston ValueRam
Storage: Software RAID 1 on SATA II HDDs with LVM.
Sound: not used
Graphics: not used

Kernel: #6 SMP from kernel.org
Patched: drivers/scsi/ahci.c and drivers/scsi/sata_via.c
(in order to use VT8251 SATA)

System: etch32, basic installation, VNC, VMWare Server
