Re: Prebinding for DragonFly/FreeBSD-4

Yeah... it was a response to a comment I made about not being able to boot DFBSD
yet on my hardware... sorry for the lack of context but others had asked me for this
information so I just cc'd the list.

Anyway SATA works on FBSD CURRENT at the moment pretty well and the disks
in question aren't SATA but just on the Nforce2 IDE controller. Does anyone else
experience similar problems with this motherboard chipset?

Could someone give a quick overview of the use of serial ATA in
FreeBSD/DragonFly? I know that the ATA driver has gone through several
incarnations. We are using incarnation #2 in DragonFly (the same as
4.8), while FreeBSD-5 is now on incarnation #3 (and having serious issues
with it). There was a lot of breakage between incarnation #1 (the wd
drivers) and #2, and between #2 and #3, which to me means that we have
to stick with what we have now and try to fix it verses, say, trying to
import the new infrastructure from FreeBSD-5.

The error below sounds like a DMA problem.

:Ok I got the 9/22 snapshot
:and it fails to boot beyond the following:
:ad0: 38166MB <WDC WD400BB-00DGA0> [77545/16/63] at ata0-master BIOSDMA
:WARNING: "ad" is usurping "ad"'s cdevsw[]
:ad1: READ command timeout tag=0 serv=0 - resetting
:ata0: resetting devices ..
:and then it hangs. I am sure its the SATA or something related to the
: NForce2 IDE controller causing this havoc.
