Issues with SATA + siI3112 + Seagate SATA disk.

Hello fellow Debians :)


I been frustrated for some time now.

My Debain box have been highly unstable under high load.
I get an full lockup, only an full hw reboot resort it.

I been playing with various kernels/compiles.

Se far I found the following relevant info:


All points to:


1. Anybody have tried this patch, or know if this should be included in
2.6.X ?

2. It seems like 2.6.8 dont have libata compiled in the kernel ?

3. When working with patch files, I often copy/paste from web pages and
seems to get errors applying that I guess comes from formating issues.
Best practice ?

4. I guess and simple solution would be to buy an promise controller and
disable the onboard SATA ?

Debug info:

Mostly using 2.6.7-2-k7 kernel, or custom compiled on source 2.6.8

Asus A7N8X + Sarge
