SubjectPROBLEM: (U)DMA, dma_intr status=0x51, error=0x84
Hello,

I recently sent an eMail to you, reporting a bug. I got two
answers. One talking about a wrong used cable. Another
talking about problems with ATI graphic cards and (U)DMA. My
ATI is an AGP-card so the answer couldn´t help me.

I changed the cable, although I used the correct cable before
and nothing has changed. I still have problems using DMA
Mode (33 and 66 MB/sec). So I think there must be an other
reason for the DMA problem. The anser-eMails are at the end
of this mail.

I compiled the kernel with CONFIG_BLK_DEV_VIA82CXXX=yes, but
this does not help anything.

Do you think it is the hardware or the kernel? Can I damage
my system using (U)DMA mode although I get errors?

I used the formular to produce a bug-report:

1.) See subject
2.) I have trouble using DMA mode with my Siemens Fujitsu
harddisk on a NMC 6vcx Motherboard. I compiled the kernel
with DMA support, multi mode VIA chipset support and booting
DMA by default when available.

I used the command "updatedb" and "find" and "bonnie" to have much
read access. No problem occurs.

I used xmms to convert mp3-files into wav. There I get many
errors of the following:

hda: dma_intr status=0x51 {DriveReadySeekComplete Error}
hda: dma_intr error=0x84 {DriveStatusError BadCRC}

I do not want to run the harddisk in PIO mode. I used hdparm
to change some settings (infos from SuSE Support database)

hdparm -d 1 -c 0 -X66 /dev/hda (also without -X66)
and
hdparm -d 1 -c 1 -X66 /dev/hda (also without -X66)
at least
hdparm -d 0 /dev/hda

Nothing changed. (only performance maybe)

I hope that is all you need on information. The problem does
not occur with Kernel 2.2.16 (SuSE-patch)

Please let me know, if that is/was a bug. If I did something
wrong with configuration, I was thankful for helping me
fixing the problem.

First answer eMail:

> hda: dma_intr error=0x84 {DriveStatusError BadCRC}

CRC means that a transfer was corrupted. normally,
this is because you are using a bogus cable. all ide/ata
cables must be 18" or less, with both ends plugged in.

> hdparm -d 1 -c 0 -X66 /dev/hda (also without -X66)

udma2 (33 MB/s) doesn't require the 80-conductor cable,
but it never hurts. you could try X65.

is it safe to assume you have CONFIG_BLK_DEV_VIA82CXXX=y?


Second answer eMail:

We just had to replace a PCI video card with an AGP card as the old video
card couldn't handle the higher PCI bus rates.
We were getting disk corruption with Windows NT. The video card was an ATI
(don't think it was a Rage though).
If you have an AGP slot you might consider giving this a try.
