Missing pcitable entry for sata_sil on initrd images
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
Initrd images include sata_sil.ko module in modules/modules.cgz
but a corresponding entry for a device with a PCI ID 1095:3114,
i.e. Silicon Image SiI 3114 SATARaid Controller,
is missing from modules/pcitable. This makes an installation on
a machine where drives are hooked up to such controller, ahem,
AFAICS this is not much different in rawhide installation images
from 09-Jun-2004. That means that sata_sil.ko is stil there
but it vanished not only from pcitable but also from modules.dep.
It is true that currently use sata_sil seems to require booting
with acpi=off for a reliable operation but there is a hardware
around where there is not much in other choices.
pcitable isn't really needed anymore -- we include
/modules/modules.pcimap and that should be sufficient for getting the
module loaded. Is the module not getting auto-loaded for you?

This is indeed the case and once I modified pcitable it got
loaded immediately. I did find the ID in question in modules.pcimap,
together with three others listed for sata_sil, but it did not
look that this was relevant.
Should be fine in FC3.
