Good luck!


I've discovered your work with the TV computer and it's been a wealth of information to me for the past week.  My current kernel configuration is based upon the one that you linked to from your site in the section about the Kernel.  Is that the latest kernel configuration file you are using?

What's frustrating is that I can pop the drive into a USB case and it works fine with the iMX53 QSB.   However, I really want to use it as a SATA device.

I've done some poking around the sata driver and I believe the 'ata1: SError: { DevExch }' error is generated by code thinking that a hot plug event has occured.  However, it seems it assigns the error when there really are no other things it can assign the error to which may be red herring as to what is going on.

I guess I'll have to pop for another SATA device and see if it works better with this board.
