Re: SATA Debian support
My SATA is configured as /dev/hde, and I do get different speeds on
different drives since
I am running Debian on a SATA hard disk (my motherboard has ICH5
and SiI3112 chipset)
Right now I am using the SiI3112 but in order to do that I had to
install Debian testing
because Woody intaller did not have the support.
I should say that the performance of my SATA under Linux is
inferior to that of normal
ATA and the data rate I get from my SATA is very lousy comparing to
I read somewhere that this is going to get fixed in future versions
of the SATA driver !
I thought these are about to be expected (DMA on hd* disks, the
sda disk is SATA, the hd* are IDE)), do you get different speed on
SATA drives? I have intel D865PERL (ICH5).
they have manufactured in different years (technologies).
jojda:/home/erik# hdparm -t /dev/sda1
Timing buffered disk reads: 156 MB in 3.00 seconds = 52.00 MB/sec
Whenever I insert my USB flash drive it is configured as /dev/sda1
I think /dev/sda* are for SCSI disk drives ! unless your SATA drive is
simulated as a SCSI disk
yes it is
btw scsi is used for pretty much any mass storage that is not IDE
(usb, firewire, can be used for SATA, even used for IDE CD burners)
anyway, my point was that SATA performs as expected on my system...
Can you tell me what you get for your data rate (MB/sec ?)
