Hi all, I'd like to add a SATA drive to a P4 box that I use as a gateway/server. The MB doesn't have a SATA interface, so I stuck an Initio-based SATA card in the box. The kernel recognizes the card, but the attached drive wasn't displayed when I started up sysinstall to format it. I'm wondering whether I am missing SATA support. I commented out a bunch of stuff such as the SCSI controllers when I compiled the kernel with ALTQ support, but these options *are* included: # SCSI peripherals device scbus # SCSI bus (required for SCSI) device ch # SCSI media changers device da # Direct Access (disks) device sa # Sequential Access (tape etc) device cd # CD device pass # Passthrough device (direct SCSI access) device ses # SCSI Environmental Services (and SAF-TE)
Should this be enough? I don't see any specific references to SATA in the handbook <http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig-config.html> Thanks. $ uname -a FreeBSD venus.lim.nl 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #4: Mon Mar 3 15:07:21 CET 2008 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/VENUS i386 -- Colin Brace Amsterdam http://lim.nl _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
