Ok thank you for your response.

I have included in the kernel the via82cxxx support.

Now when I boot , it was very slow and I have this :

ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx
VP_IDE: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:00:11.1
ACPI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:11.1 - using
IRQ 255

VP_IDE: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later

hdb: hdb1 hdb2
hdc: ATAPI 32X CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache, DMA
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.12

Each dma_timer_expiry is long.


I have this at boot :
# hdparm /dev/hda
/dev/hda:
multcount = 16 (on)
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 0 (off)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
geometry = 65535/16/63, sectors = 78177792, start = 0
# hdparm -tT /dev/hda
/dev/hda:
Timing buffer-cache reads: 924 MB in 2.01 seconds = 460.46 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 20 MB in 3.08 seconds = 6.50 MB/sec



When active dma the disk access freeze during a long time and I have
this error :
hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x61
hda: DMA timeout error
hda: dma timeout error: status=0x58 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
and the performance is the same :
# hdparm -tT /dev/hda
/dev/hda:
Timing buffer-cache reads: 948 MB in 2.01 seconds = 472.42 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 20 MB in 3.08 seconds = 6.50 MB/sec
