    SubjectRe: SiI 3112A + Seagate HDs = still no go?
    Date
    Hi there,

    I get very different symptoms indeed. My drive isn't in the
    blacklist, and adding it has little effect (status 0xd9 to 0xd8, no
    other differences). Once the controller hangs, I can't even kill dd
    or login at a different terminal, just a complete lockup. If I have 2
    drives plugged in, running the dd on one of them also hangs the
    other, thus I suspect the controller. Also, reading via dd is fine,
    only writing has trouble.
