I'm on a sarge installed system. The problem that I'm facing is with an
external SATA hard drive that's connected to a PCMCIA card. I installed
the system on a regular ATA laptop hard drive so I didn't face this
problem until I first plugged the external hard drive in.
I'm not home at the moment so I can't really provide you with the output
right away. I can, however, tell you that the card uses a Silicon Image
Sil 3112 SATALink PCMCIA chipset. I do believe that this is a
kernel-related issue as well, I simply posted this email to both in hope
that someone would have run into a similar problem in the past.
I'm going to try the latest kernel snapshot as soon as I get back home
so I'll keep you updated on this.
