Re: Mount problem with SATA and Kernel 2.6.6

Thank you for your answer. I always use the old .config. I use EXT3
filesystem with the drivers compiled in. I have no ramdisk, because I have
compiled in the Promise drivers directly into the kernel. As written before,
the hardisk is recognized correctly, also with the correct size. I have
photographed the kernel messages during bootup and can see, that the SATA
hardisk is attached as sda. It is strange, that I'm still unable to mount to
SDA9, like in Kernel 2.4.18

The problem must be afterwards, after the Promise driver is being loaded.

Thanks again,
