No; with the Silicon Image I am getting the timeouts that "everyone" else is getting (google("freebsd sil3112 timeout"). > Have you tried a different brand of disk? Some combinations of > controller and disk don't work correctly. With the Silicon Image I saw it with both Seagate and Maxtor. With the Promise I am not sure; might have been the Maxtor once or twice, but only the seagate when I triggered the bug on purpose (didn't try the Maxtor). > If I use up a slot, I'd like at least 4 ports and NCQ. > If FreeBSD doesn't have NCQ support yet I might just get a > USB or FW to SATA adapter or two and wait for NCQ. NCQ is nice but I don't *really* care. I just want something that works at all :) Of course I would want NCQ if it was a performance critical production system though. And AFAIK NCQ is not yet supported in FreeBSD. -- / Peter Schuller PGP userID: 0xE9758B7D or 'Peter Schuller <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>' Key retrieval: Send an E-Mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] E-Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Web: http://www.scode.org
