FC2 test3. It appears that the driver is only looking for standard
SATA ports and not the PATA port.

I noticed:

Has there been work on this?

I noticed:

"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.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2004-12-07 01:00:20 EST
still a problem with the 2.6.9 based errata kernel ?
Comment 4 Peter Magnusson 2004-12-19 21:02:29 EST
I tried the 2.6.9-1.6_FC2. Still a problem.
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:22:06 EDT
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.

Thank you.
