Which kernel were you using before that works ?
Also does booting with ide=nodma work (this will make it slow but mean we can
then do some
other tests)
Comment 2 Marek Greško 2003-06-09 07:25:27 EDT
We were using kernel 2.4.18-27.7.x and it worked perfectly. 
I cannot test ide=nodma now, because it is our produsction machine situated at 
our hosting provider. I will provide this information later. 
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2003-06-09 07:56:52 EDT
Ok if 18.27 fixed it then I know what problem it was and I'll close the bug. 

Comment 4 Marek Greško 2003-06-16 12:05:51 EDT
If nobody else encounters this bug. It is probably not a bug. Only hardware
problem. The disk is out of order forever. The new disk is not IBM Deskstar so I
cannot test it any more.

Sorry for your time.
