    SubjectSata_via problems in a Vintage2-AE1
    Date
    Dear people,

    I have a barebone Asus Vintage2-AE1 [1]. This box has a mobo Asus A8V-MQ. The
    board has:
    - the Socket 939 for AMD Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64.
    - North Bridge: VIA K8M800
    - South Bridge: VIA VT8251
    - VIA Graphics Integrated
    - IDE 2 x UltraDMA 133
    - 4 x Serial ATA
    ...

    I'm using the bios version 0206. The 0210 doesn't show me the vga card, so I
    don't have graphics mode. I think that is a buggy bios.

    The bios is configured with vt8251 in AHCI mode and bios boot up activated, so
    the hd is recognized in the beginning. I don't have any raid, only one hd.
    The hd is a Maxtor 6V250F0.

    I'm using a debian etch but the i386 version. The only way that I can use the
    hd is using a 2.6.16 standard kernel with the modifications explained in this
    page [2]. Basically you have to use their ahci.c and sata_via.c. The
    modifications are small from the original code from Mr Jeff Garzik.

    I have tried to use the 2.6.18 and 2.6.20rc6 and the result is the same. The
    kernel boots, but when arrives at the ata3,

    scsi2 : ahci
    ata3: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
    ata3.00: qc timeout (cmd 0xec)
    ata3.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x104)
    .... repeated some times ...
    scsi3 : ahci
    ata4: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
    scsi4 : ahci
    ata4: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
    scsi5 : ahci
    ata6: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
    Done.
    Begin: Mounting root file system... ...
    Begin: Running /scripts/local-top
    ide0: I/O resource 0x3F6-0x3F6 not free.
    ide0: ports already in use, skipping probe.
    ide1: I/O resource 0x376-0x376 not free.
    ide1: ports already in use, skipping probe.
    Done.
    Begin: Waiting for root file system ...

    .....

    but the /dev/sda doesn't exist so I cannot boot.

    using the 2.6.16 with lspci -M I obtain the info attached below. Please, could
    you look on it?

    Best regards,

    thanks in advance,

    Leo
