I've connected two hd's to the Raid Ultra ATA 133 Connector of my Asus k8v, but I cannot find them in /dev. What kernel options must I enable to recognize them? Have only enabled the Promise and Via SATA Raid support, but I guess I need Promis IDE raid support (The 2 hds are not in raid modus and work perfectly, winXP recognuizes them) or something like that, but I cannot find something in the kernel.

If by "SATA Raid support" you mean you've activated the libata support in the SCSI section of the kernel, then that's not what you need to use parallel ATA 133 drives; you need regular parallel ATA drivers, activated in the ATA section of the kernel. Note that the RAID features of these controllers are pretty minimal, and require special driver support in the OS. This support is weak or completely missing in Linux for most controllers, so don't get hung up on the RAID terminology; they're regular ATA controllers, as far as Linux is concerned. If you've activated RAID features in the BIOS and another OS, you may need to undo that or try to find appropriate Linux drivers, which may be tricky or impossible.

I too am trying to this ide interface to work. As a normal IDE controller, not as raid controller. I told the bios to use this controller as an IDE master.

2.6.3-gentoo-r2 does not recognize it as an ide controller.

Code:

00:0f.0 RAID bus controller: VIA Technologies, Inc.: Unknown device 3149 (rev 80)
        Subsystem: Asustek Computer, Inc.: Unknown device 80ed
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 10
        I/O ports at e800 [size=8]
        I/O ports at e400 [size=4]
        I/O ports at e000 [size=8]
        I/O ports at d800 [size=4]
        I/O ports at d400 [size=16]
        I/O ports at d000 [size=256]
        Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2


Here is how the ide part in my kernel is set up:
Code:

#
# IDE chipset support/bugfixes
#
CONFIG_IDE_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI=y
CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA_PCI=y
CONFIG_IDEDMA_PCI_AUTO=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_ADMA=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX_OLD=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX_NEW=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_VIA82CXXX=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA=y
CONFIG_IDEDMA_AUTO=y


I did not see ide driver support for a VIA 3149 in the kernel.

Hi,
I have the same MoBo and I have the same Problem. I think you want to get the single Pata Channel working that is connected to the Promise Conntroller. But the Problem is that it is not supported by the Kernel nor by Promise.
