Please help - problems with Ultra DMA
I'm trying to enable Ultra DMA on a woody system running a 2.4.17
I've enabled the applicable kernel options.
CPU is Athlon 1700XP
Motherboard is an InnoBD BD7300D, with:
VIA VT8366A (KT266A) North bridge
VIA VT8233A South Bridge
Disk drive: Maxtor 5T06086 60GB 7200 RPM
But when I type 'hdparm -d1 /dev/hda', I get
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Operation not permitted
using_dma = 0 (off)
and yes, I'm running 'hdparm' as root.
I'm writing to this list as a last resort, because the HOWTOs and manpages
say nothing about this, and Google brings up a whole bunch of unanswered
questions on mailing list archives (which I hope this won't end up as).
Can someone please shed some light?
Thanks so much in advance
