I have a couple of systems with Promise ide adapters -- one works, one does
The one that works has the following into from /proc/pci:
Bus 0, device 8, function 0:
RAID storage controller: Promise Technology IDE UltraDMA/33 (rev 1).
Medium devsel. IRQ 11. Master Capable. Latency=64.
I/O at 0xa400 [0xa401].
I/O at 0xa804 [0xa805].
I/O at 0xac00 [0xac01].
I/O at 0xb004 [0xb005].
I/O at 0xb400 [0xb401].
The one that does NOT work has the following /proc/pci info:
Bus 1, device 9, function 0:
Unknown mass storage controller: Promise Technology Unknown device (rev
Vendor id=105a. Device id=4d38
Medium devsel. IRQ 5. Master Capable. Latency=64.
I/O at 0xecf8 [0xecf9].
I/O at 0xecf0 [0xecf1].
I/O at 0xece0 [0xece1].
I/O at 0xecd8 [0xecd9].
I/O at 0xec80 [0xec81].
Both work on other opterating systems (e.g., Win/nt).
These are on different systems.
Unfortunately, this late in the cycle, there is very little hope of getting this
fixed for the Winston release... perhaps the next release. As such, I'm marking
this defect as DEFERRED.
