I have problem with ATA drive having DMA TIMEOUTs. It might work day or two fine with DMA mode on but then system halts on those dma timeout problems.
hardware is: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:5:0: class=0x018085 card=0x4d68105a chip=0x4d69105a rev=0x02 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Promise Technology Inc' device = 'PDC20269 Ultra133 TX2 EIDE Controller' class = mass storage and PDC20269 is on supported list (5.4-RELEASE). and has one 160GB drive in it. When I first got this problem I tried change cable, changed drive to another similar one and moved drive to different place on card. No help. Now it has been running on PIO mode about a year without any problems at all. So I wonder if there actually is some problem in ata drivers and is there maybe any fixes on those drivers in new releases? So would upgrade to 5.5 or 6.1 help on this? upgrade from 5.3 to 5.4 didn't help... I can actually run it on PIO-mode but sometimes DMA could give little more speed so if you would be cool if I can get it work with DMA mode on. -- kpn @ IRCnet _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
