The machine in question is a DS10 Alphaserver (DP264 type chipset) using an
ALI M5229 rev c1 IDE controller (uses the ALI 15x3 driver). The stock 2.5.53
kernel panics at boot time because it can't find the root partition; when I
first reported the problem, one of the maintainers passed on a patch that
resolved some 2.5 IDE issues. With the patch in place, the boot process gets
farther along but occaisionally there will be a printout that hda lost an
interrupt. I don't know how far it really gets, because I gave up after other
subsystems started reporting errors.

I haven't tried 2.5.54, either. I will shortly.

Is 2.4 really in bug-fix mode now? 2.4.19 and 2.4.20 were huge patches.

Thanks,
jasonp
