Re: SATA DVD not recognized


thanks for your input on this!

I plan on switching to amd64 this weekend, and if I´m lucky, the DVD
drive will work with that. If it doesn´t, I´ll try to get a SCSI drive
off ebay and wait for newer kernel versions to have improved support for

A most amazing thing was the almost total lack of documentation and info
concerning the topic. All I could find, after quite some searching, was
the information that I would need to have the libata and, in my case,
sata_nv modules, and that there can be problems with it. I couldn´t even
find something useful in the kernel docs.

Imho, that is worse than a simple statement like ´it doesn´t work (yet)´.
