This is a taxing question.
I'm having a bit of bother with my promise Ultra66. i'm running Slackware v7(v2.2.13) WITH the patch for the controller. One gigabyte 6BXE Mainboard (v3.4).
On the primary IDEe channel i've got a Quantum FireBall 2110A 2gb (primary)
2nd channel is only a primary IDE CD (24x AKO)
now i've got this Promise ultra66 with 2 x 9gb Quantum KA's (both as
primary's on different channels).
And when I recompile the kernel with support for this thing it boots up and
the IDE channels loaded but it seems to hang when trying to access the
/dev/hda (Quantum Fireball 2gb) for the 1st time. hdparm says it supports
dma. And i dunno what to do now?!!?!? Has anyone had any problems with the
Any and all help appreciated..
