SubjectHow to disable DMA for compact-flash disk?
I'm trying to use Fedora 11 with default kernel on an old via system
that boots from compact flash. DMA is not supported on the CF for
whatever reason, and in previous kernels, I've always disabled
DMA, first with ide=nodma, and then later with
ide_core.nodma=0.0 ide_core.nodma=0.1 ...

However, this no longer works in the 2.6.29.6 kernel.

Fedora 11 32-bit
Kernel 2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.i686.PAE

(I can't get a custom built & somewhat hacked 2.6.31-rc5 to find a ramdisk or root-disk, but the
errors about unknown boot option are the same).


From dmesg output:


Built 1 zonelists in Zone order, mobility grouping on. Total pages: 255649
Kernel command line: ro root=UUID=6f65a5dd-7872-4715-be9c-3741bd6ac7d3
