DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2006-06
DragonFly 1.4. on Asus A8N SLI Premium
I tried to install DragonFly 1.4.4 (from the offical ISO image) on my
recent Asus A8N SLI Premium motherboard. The CPU is an Athlon 64 X2 3800+.
On the IDE (PATA) are a DVD-RW, DVD-ROM and a hard disk. Also 2 SATA
hard disks are present.
During booting I see that the DragonFly kernel issues strange errors on
the SATA drives (but the are recognized properly), eg.:
ad10: DMA limited to UDMA33, non ATA66 cable or device
and on the DVD-RW device:
acd0: MODE_SENSE_BIG command timeout resetting
and a lot of these errors:
acd0: failure to execute ATAPI packet command.
At then the mounting of the root (cd9660:/dev/acd0a) failed.
Should DragonFly run on this motherboard (Nforce 4 based)?
PS. On the same hardware Solaris Express and Fedora Core 5 runs without
