    SubjectRe: VIA IDE performance under 2.6.0-test7/8?
    Problem solved ...

    I wrote that playing around with read ahead settings (hdparm -a ...) did
    not help.
    In fact I was wrong, I assumed that these had identical meaning in the
    2.4 and
    2.6 kernel series and tried nothing higher than 255 (2.4.x maximum).
    With 255
    kernel 2.4.0 performed 50% better than 2.6.0.

    After hdparm -a 8192 /dev/hd?: 2.6.0 performs 10% better than 2.4.0

    Shouln´t the default settings be corrected?
