Description Devin Henderson 2004-11-30 04:19:23 EST
Description of problem:

I have two hard drives connected to my Silicon Image SATA controller.
One of the drives is actually an IDE drive, connected using a IDE to
SATA converter (http://www.abit-usa.com/technology/serillel_new.php).
I am getting constant, repeated errors on this drive which are printed
to the screen over and over again as I try to use my system. I can log
into X Windows and the errors aren't visible but I know they are still
going on in the background.

This is the error (it is always exactly the same error):

hdg: sata_error = 0x00000000, watchdog = 0, siimage_mmio_ide_dma_test_irq

How can I solve this problem or at least stop the error from being
continually reported? Is this something I should worry about or simply


I will attach my Kernel Statup Log to this bug. You will see the error
printed throughout the log.

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.
