Subjectide_dma_timeout w/2.2.16 (redhat) and PIIX3
From
Date
I've got an older HP E40 that I'm having problems getting to work with
DMA turned on.

Specifically, I get the following errors when I do a
"hdparm -d 1 /dev/hda" and the same for hdc. If I boot into single
user mode I can't seem to generate the problem, but after booting into
multi user mode I can cause all kinds of errors just by doing a bunch
of disk activity. (Start oracle, copy filesystems, compile kernel,
etc)


I get this with the "standard" Redhat 2.2.16 kernel (that is with
their patches applied). I also tried applying Andre's IDE patches for
2.2.16 and didn't get any success.

The drives are Maxtor 45G 7200 RPM IDE drives. I'm using 80pin IDE
cables -- though the PIIX3 only supports DMA, not UDMA.

I was going to get a UDMA controller, but the only one I could find
that seemed to have linux support (Promise) would break when I enabled
DMA. Figured I'd not bother working on that until I got the base
stuff working.

Question about hdparm. If I enable dma (-d1) and then experience
errors. I can't seem to just turn off dma support (-d0) and get on
with life. I continue to get the DMA errors and must reboot to get
into non-dma mode. Is this correct?
