Description John Dong 2005-02-06 16:33:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20050204 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
In FedoraForum.org, I saw that there were a few lengthy threads of
users begging for support for the IDE port on the Promise FastTrak 378.

Recently committed into the kernel was a series of libata patches that
implement this support.

Linked is the bugzilla entry at Ubuntu (that I filed), including the 2
isolated patches taken from Gentoo's gentoo-dev-sources >=2.6.10-r5

Any information on this?

I cannot install FC3 or FC4test3 on an Alienware Area 51-M 7700

It uses the the Promise Techology PDC20378 (FastTrak 378/SATA 378) (Rev 02)
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-05-17 21:57:37 EDT
