Description of problem:
A PATA disk connected to the middle connector of a promise SATA 150
TX2 PLUS controller card is not recognised by the kernel.
It will not show in DMESG.
Kernel tested: Linux version 2.6.5-1.315
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: disk not recognised
Expected Results: disk should show...
FC2 test3. It appears that the driver is only looking for standard
SATA ports and not the PATA port.
Has there been work on this?
"remove incorrect PATA port check"
Although I've never done any kernel driver work, I'm willing to do
whatever it takes if you can give me some pointers, or to test
changes. I know how to build custom kernels with module changes.
I tested the 2.6.6-rc3 kernel and this bug still occurs. If you want
to write patches on that kernel, I'm willing to test them.
still a problem with the 2.6.9 based errata kernel ?
I tried the 2.6.9-1.6_FC2. Still a problem.
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
