SubjectSiI 3112A + Seagate HDs = still no go?
Date
Hi all,

I just recently took the plunge and bought 4 250 GB Seagate drives
and a 2 port Silicon Image 3112A controller card for the 2 drives my
motherboard doesn't handle. No matter how hard I try, I can't get the
hard drives to work: they are detected correctly and work reasonably
well under _very_ light load, but anything like building a RAID array
is a bit much and the whole controller seems to lock up.

I've tried adding the drive to the blacklist in the sata_sil.c driver
and I still have the same trouble: as you can see the messages below
relate to my patched kernel with the blacklist fix. I've seen that
this was discussed just yesterday, but that seemed to give nothing:
http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0508.1/0310.html

Ready and willing to hack my kernel to pieces; this machine is no use
until I get all the drives working! Needless to say the drives
connected to the on-board VIA controller work fine, as do the drives
currently on the SiI controller if I swap them around.

Any ideas?

TIA
Chris

The following messages are sent to the log when everything goes mad:
