Description of problem:
System hangs with UDMA failure with HPT366 and IBM Deskstar
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After every boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-2.4.20-13.7
2. Boot the new kernel
3. System hangs with UDMA failure during boot.
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
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.
Ok if 18.27 fixed it then I know what problem it was and I'll close the bug.
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.
Thanks for filing the bug. If someone else finds this bug and has the same
problem - please reopen it
