Subject2.4.0-test8 and PDC 20265
Date
Hi all,

I am trying very hard to get kernel 2.4.0-test8 to recognize the Promise
Ultra66 PCI IDE add-on card -- based on PDC 20265.

The motherboard is a FIC SD-11 (Athlon 700). The only other PCI card is a
D-link quad ethernet card (DFE-570TX).

The kernel correctly recognizes the card as a PDC-20265, but the drives on
the controller are not recognized. The drive is a standard IBM 4.3 G IDE
drive.

The card is in PCI Slot-1 (next to the AGP slot). The award BIOS doesn't
recognize the card. I dont' see anything in the BIOS boot messages that say
"Promise Ultra66".

The odd thing is that, the motherboard won't boot unless I disable the BIOS
interrupts for the addon card -- this is an option in one of the award BIOS
setup screens.

The rest of the box is a clean install of SuSE 6.4.

The following messages are from Linux startup:

I did try:
"ide2=0x1170,0x1376"
on the command line -- but, it didn't make any difference.

Looking at pdc202xx.c doesn't yield any helpful hints for me to try.

Unfortunately, this box has _never_ had any other OS other than Linux --
infact, it is a brand new box assembled from parts. So, I can't verify if
lesser OSen can see the card.

I'd appreciate if anyone can share their experiences and thoughts on where I
might try to find a fix for this.

Thanks.
