Unhappy how can make RH9 to see my sata disk


I have RH9 installed with 1 IDE and a 200G serial ata disk on a ASUS P5GDC-V DELUXE motherboard (915 chipset). Only can see the IDE disk. I´ve downloaded the only driver from the asus site i found for my board. IT8212 ATA RAID Controller driver and Application V1.7.1.9 for Windows 2000/XP/2003 and device driver header for Linux. In the readme file says that it has been tested for kernel 2.4.20-8 .When installing the driver it tells me that the driver was compiled with gcc2 while my kernel (2.4.20-9) with gcc3 and it is known not to work.
Should I downgrade my kernel ? Is there any solution without purchasing a pci controller ?

Usually upgrading the kernel is the way to go to support new devices. Unfortunately I couldn't confirm the IT8212 chipset is supported in the 2.4 kernel. You may want to try an upgrade anyway: find the latest kernel RPM for RH9 and try it.

If that does not work, then consider compiling the IT8212 chipset driver for your current kernel. I don't know how it's distributed. You may need to patch your kernel then recompile it.

I would avoid downgrading the kernel until all other solutions have failed. This is what I call a last resort option : try HARD to avoid it. It is not a trivial solution, because:
- you need to find the same gcc version that was used to compile your driver
- install this version of gcc on your system without affecting your current gcc install
- recompile your kernel with the appropriate gcc

I have not mixed gcc versions myself. I can't tell how well this would work.

Does Anyone Have Ahci Sata Hard Drive Working Under Red Hat 2.4.29 ???

DOES ANYONE HAVE AHCI SATA HARD DRIVE WORKING UNDER RED HAT 2.4.29 ???

I´m bored of surfing forums with no solution to this. It seems an utopia.

My system is P4, asus mobo intel ichr6 southbridge for sata, ide bootdisk for xp and linux and sata datadisk as slave. In the xconfig enabled scsi emulation for sata and ahci as module, and i think the kernel has libata built in. What is the how-to to do this work??


any idea is welcome

Now the thread looks all funky mister moderator sir! (yikes!)

[mod question] were all the thread titles identical?
