Hi,

for a number of good reasons, that it's pointless discussing at this stage, I've been holding onto a 2.6.32 kernel, that last vintage that supported this feature. That is no longer feasible, so I have to migrate all my /dev/hd* partitions to sata driver.

Before updating the kernel and getting a whole raft of other shit to deal with I want to just switch out CONFIG_IDE_GD and make sure it all still boots and re-gig all the device names.


I rebuilt with
Code:
# CONFIG_IDE_GD is not set

but all those partitions' devices not longer show.
Code:

bash-4.2#dmesg | grep hd
[    3.842096] hda: ST3120026A, ATA DISK drive
[    4.459995] hda: host max PIO5 wanted PIO255(auto-tune) selected PIO4
[    4.460316] hda: UDMA/100 mode selected
[    5.444924] hdd: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-107D, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
[    5.451720] hdd: host max PIO5 wanted PIO255(auto-tune) selected PIO4
[    5.451788] hdd: UDMA/33 mode selected
[    5.485384] ide-cd: hdd: ATAPI 40X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2000kB Cache
bash-4.2#



The ide cdrom still works at /dev/hdd as per my kernel command line arg. however, I don't see any partitions in /dev/sd* that match the 25 partitions on the old /dev/hda

Root fs is on /dev/sda so system boots.

Maybe I just need to turn on something else but I can't find out what.

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA, Gentree.

You better post your lspci -nn output and pastebin the kernel .config.

You need CONFIG_PATA_AMD for IDE interface [0101]: NVIDIA Corporation nForce2 IDE [10de:0065] (currently disabled in your conf).

If both _IDE and _ATA drivers are set, it's quite random which gets picked for use.
It's best to do it in one go.

built that in and no change.

I'm trying to go to full libsata solution. For the moment it seem I have neither rather than just the wrong one.

Thanks, all.

Alright, lets go alternate route, can you boot with latest SystemRescueCD (USB stick is fine) and look at lspci -nnk output?

It kind of confirms my assumption you need PATA_AMD for libata migration. However ... since you disabled EIDE and enabled PATA in your experimental kernel and it is still not working my next guess is your SATA RAID controller is messing things up as far as it comes to naming device nodes.

Still would be great if you booted from SystemRescueCD and looked what drivers are used and how devices are named.

OK I booted with parted magic 6.6 , should be same enough.

the IDE drive comes up as sda, the SATA drives getting pushed along one. (Which is what I really hate about crap: non stable device names).

That pointed out I was missing ATA_GENERIC . I still have not managed to find that in make menuconfig , so I edited .config directly.

pata_amd module was getting loaded , so I added that too and new we see it in lspci:
Code:


00:09.0 IDE interface [0101]: NVIDIA Corporation nForce2 IDE [10de:0065] (rev a2)
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:0c11]
        Kernel driver in use: pata_amd



Now with, on the face of it the same config. I still don't get ANY /dev/hd* , even IDE DVD had gone.

So a couple of wrinkles sorted out but still no drive.

Thanks for your guidance.

Gentree,

first, if you could not enable it in menuconfig it means you miss a parent option. Use '/' in menuconfig as you do it in less to search.

Second, editing .config manually is asking for trouble because dependencies are not satisfied.

Regarding hd* devices - there will be none, they all will show up as sd* when PATA drivers are used.

PS in relation to your comment about the RAID, I unplugged the second SATA which in newly installed. No change.

This remaining SATA+IDE is the hardware that was working before.

Could you clarify ide_core should be off for libsata ?

Thx

Duh! Thx.

with single SATA , the IDE is now showing as sdb* with it's 25 partitions. Nearly there.

I'll put the other one back....

OK. I now have three drives again !

I need to fix fstab to get everything mounting properly but it's fixed.

The main trick was to use a live boot to find out what modules I was missing. I should have thought of that.

Thanks for all the help.

8)


BTW ata_generic was half way down the long list under ATA_SFF , I was just missing it with all the hardware specific options in there.

Thanks for the / search tip. I was forgetting that.

:wink:

You are welcome!

BTW, looking at your location ... my most pleasant hotel experience ever was in Reims. I arrived there by sunset. Stopped at first hotel I could sight. Stepped in, asked for a room. I was handed a key no questions asked, no paperwork whatsoever. Next morning after breakfast I loaded my stuff into my car, went back inside, had to wait a few minutes for a clerk to pay my bill. If I paid cash there would be no trace of me being there. Isn't that unusual in our current world? Well, I did use a credit card, still no ID was required.
Then, after a few months I was traveling in the US. I was denied a motel room in Pennsylvania because my European ID did not have an address on it (my home country thinks revealing peoples addresses is a breach of privacy). !?! No comments.

Yes, France can be refreshingly old-fashioned at times.

I've sadly added US to my own personal no-fly zone. So unless I get kidnapped by a seal team in a dawn raid for using a subversive OS I probably won't need a room in Penn state nor a state pen.
