few months ago, which uses a Via K8T890's onboard SATA support.
don't wanna bother you, BUT:
I've really no idea where people get all their SATA issues from, it's
not had issues for me since Woody 3.0r2 was current.
SATA is NOT running very well !
I'm running this AMD64 Debian since about 6 (or more) months on
different AMD64 MoBos and I'm really no newbe.
I've some non-working SATA (devices) too, but it doesn't matter me
However whenever I see a new version, module, trick, tip or whatever I
check it if it's working now.
In my point of view (and this isn't based on much know how in this
issue), all my SATA problems are coming whenever there's "NForce 3"
stuff on the Board.
However, what I wanna say is:
If I'm not able to wait 6 more months I'll buy me a new MoBo, but
others don't like to go that way of problem solution.
They really have problems with SATA, they really miss their devices !
I really haven't had SATA difficulties since I tried a 2.6.0-test3
kernel with a Promise 20376 controller. I'm not trying to be contrary, I
simply haven't ever experienced issues that people report with similar
hardware, which confuses me greatly.
