The daily builds have seen my on-board Silicon Image 3112 (I've got an A7N8X-Delux), but you might still run into problems. Depending on your drives, there may be problems with the siimage driver (Seagate drives are apparently the ones to avoid). I think all the problems have been worked out, but you'd need the latest patches from the lkml or linux-ide list. With the most recent posted just a few days ago, you'll probably have to build your own kernel:

I don't even get that far. After manually loading sata_sil (using
expert26) the Partition Disks menu still does not show any disks.

lspci says:

0000:01:07.0 RAID bus controller: Silicon Image, Inc. (formerly CMD Technology Inc) Silicon Image Serial ATARaid Controller [ CMD/Sil 3512 ] (rev 01)
0000:01:07:0 Class 0104: 1095:3512 (rev 01)

And /proc/scsi/sata_sil/0 says, that there is no support for
/proc yet.

Am I missing another module?

BTW, the disk is a Samsung SP1614C.

Any idea?
