Is this a bug or new hardware enablement?

Comment 1 Matthew Saltzman 2007-08-21 21:20:21 UTC
I have this same issue with my Thinkpad T61.  The device should be supported by
the ahci driver, but it is not found at boot.  This applies to the install
process and to booting after installation is complete.  The problem is still
present in kernel-

Lenovo (by Intel) / 82801HBM/HEM (ICH8M/ICH8M-E) SATA AHCI Controller [SATA

Should I file a separate bug or is this OK?

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2007-08-21 21:38:23 UTC
Seperate bug please - differing hardware, and assign it to jgarzik@redhat.com

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.


The information contained herein indicates this is resolved from kernel 2.6.22
so I am closing. If I have erred, please accept my profuse apologies and re-open
and I will attempt to assist in its resolution.

yep, you may close this bug, and I find FC8 Test 2 contains this patch.
