Hi list, I'm having problems with the following setup:
Abit KT7A-RAID Adaptec 1210SA in 3rd slot and 2xWestern Digitial 200GB drives Intel 10/100/1000 in 2nd slot AGP card (some generic GeForce) Samsung 80GB connected to first IDE controller CD-ROM connected to second IDE controller In essence, any operation that touches the drives connected to the 1210SA controller hang machine in place (after about 3 or 4 seconds), and only message I was able to see before it was 'ata2 request DISCONNECT' (disks are visible as ad4 and ad6). Of course any disk operations involving the IDE drive are OK, I tested some file transfers and they were able to keep 20MB/s rate without a problem. I consulted the BIOS settings page of the motherboard manual and set up everything so IRQs would not collide - so that's why NIC and the Adaptec PCI card are on 2nd and 3rd slot (I have to use USB on this PC and don't have any PCI graphics card, so essentialy, there is no other option). 'vmstat' shows every device on it's own interrupt. Hangs happen with and without ACPI loaded during boot. I saw some discussions about how crappy Si3112 and low-end Adaptec controllers are, but is there any way to have it running stable on 6.0/6.1RC machine? -- "Confidence is what you have before you | Łukasz Bromirski understand the problem." -- Woody Allen | lukasz:bromirski,net _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
