hard disks on ide controller SiI680 not recognized


Hallo,

I have a recently installed Debian with Linux 2.4.18-bf2.4. My goal is a home file server with software raid 1 for data, leaving the os on disk hda.

Linux is installed on a 2Gb disk in
hda1 /boot
hda2 swap
hda3 /

There is also:
hdc cd-rom
hdd not used (just added for a second swap file)

I additionally installed two 40 GB disks on the onboard ide controller for software raid 1 but now I want to move them to their own cntroller. I have not yet moved any data to the 40 Gb disks.

Now I have installed a ide crontroller (with raid that I do not use) so that I can have two 40 GB har disks each on its ownindividual bus. At boot time I see the ide card and have put hard disk 0 (primary bus master disk) in set 1 and hard disk 2 (secondary bus master disk) in set 2.

In Linux I cannot find the hard disks. I tried to run cfdisk for
/dev/hde
/dev/hdf
/dev/hdg
/dev/hdh

dmesg (see below) seems to show that the new hard disks are not visible ot Linux

What do I need to do be able to access the hard disks?


Greetings,

Couple of points;
under lspci it identified the controller "00:12.0 RAID bus controller: CMD Technology Inc: Unknown device 0680 (rev 02)" and is stating that it has identified it as CMD.
You have for have obviously incorporated modules or put in Promise drivers because of the report in the syslog;
"Promise Fasttrak(tm) Softwareraid driver 0.03beta: No raid array found
Highpoint HPT370 Softwareraid driver for linux version 0.01
No raid array found"
Have you by any chance checked whether there is a CMD raid driver available as a module or is supported in the later kernels and tried that as I think the base problem is that your system is unable to address the hardware.

According to some web sites the SiI680 card is Linux compatible. I have also seen people report that the plug it in and it works. But it did not happen for me.

CMD adn SiI seem to be related since their web sites are connected.

I had previously tried to install teh 40 GB hard disks on a Promise Fast Trak 100 ide controller card but that was not supported by Linux. How do I get rid of the old drivers for it?

I had also tries a CMD 649 ide controller but that too had no Linux support.

I have not been able to find any intromation about dirvers or modules. where do I find that? How would I install them?

To check which modules are available in your kernel do as root from a shell console "modconf" and see if there are raid drivers. I have the 2.4.22 kernel and see CMD64x listed. Also check your motherboard manual to see which controller is being used.
You may also want to have a look at the mini howto on software raid.
Regarding the removal of drivers; if you installed the drivers during the install process then they are likely to have been from the modules and again do modconf and go down and look for raid drivers, the installed driver will have a + next to it, select the driver and it should then remove the driver.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion.

Checked modconf and it did not report any CMDXXX module at all. Was it maybe only added after 2.4.18 (version that I use)?

I suppose that I can upgrade to 2.4.22 kernel without a total reinstall. Now I need to find out how to do this and not mess up my lilo.

Greetings,

elbe3321

If you are very new to Linux installing a new kernel can be quite daunting. Since you are using Debian I will describe the Debian way;
Go to the Debian site and then to the packages section and find the kernel-source for 2.4.22 and download it. I usually put mine in /usr/src. Unpack and rename the directory to kernel-source-2.4.22.
You will need to apt-get install debhelper modutils kernel-package libncurses5-dev libc6-dev fakeroot
To build a kernel package;
cd to the kernel source eg mine cd /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.22
copy your old config file as this will give your basic setup as it currently exists;
cp /boot/config-2.4.18.config (check the name of the file in /boot)
make menuconfig (make xconfig is easier)
This is going to give streams of options if the option is unknown go with the default e.g. (N/y) N is the default and just pressing return will give N if you are not sure and there an m option then select m (module).Once complete save and exit. If you want to alter and change something later you can easily add or remove options and recompile the kernel. Now do;
make-kpkg clean (always do this prior to compiling)
fakeroot make-kpkg --append_to_version -486 --initrd \ --revision=rev.01 kernel_image
(the append to version (-486) can be anything but preferably stay away from official Debian jargon eg k7 - I use amdk7 to indicate that it's compiled for Athlon) The system will go mad for a while depending on the speed of the machine. Mine takes about 7 minutes.
If all goes well and there are no errors you should have a new debian kernel-image package sitting in /usr/src so cd /usr/src
I personally would install grub before you install a new kernel as they handle this much better than lilo and you will have the option of using the old kernel if something goes wrong plus grub is automatically updated when you install a new kernel.
if you are now ready to install the new kernel do;
dpkg -i kernel-image-2.4.22*.deb.
That's it. Check that grub has been updated and you are ready to roll. Reboot select your new kernel and hope for the best.

Hi TigerOC,

Many thanks for the detailed info. The good news is that I was able to compile and actually run a new kernel. I ran grub from a floppy to try it out. And the kernel booted. It was my first compilation and first use of grub. I am so happy. :-))

The bad news is I still cannot access the ide controller. :-(( I could not find the kernel-source 2.4.22. The newest stable that I could fin d was a 2.4.18, which is what I had. So just to try making a kernel I used it, hoping that a new compliation with some changes might do the job.

I made a few configuration changes. As I wrote earlier I had a Linux version 2.4.18-bf2.4 . It was configures for IBM and I have a AMD K& so I changed that. I also added the raid module. Still no luck.

Where did you find the linuc 2.4.22?

Which modules do I have to include to be able to use the ide controller?

Is there anything else that I can try?

BIOS settings?
My BIOS is Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG 1984-1999

Motherboard settings, jumpers?
My motherboard is a K6Bv3+ 66 Rev.3
CPU = AMD-K6 -2 500
RAM = 229376 K
ide Controller chipset SiI0680

By teh way, I tried to acces the hard disks with
cfdisk /dev/hde (tried hde to hdh)

Any suggestions?

The kernel-source is here and is the last on the list. When you unpack it rename the directory kernel-source-2.4.22. Glad to hear that you have learned something new and enjoyed it. I personally think Debian is the greatest thing since sliced bread and there is always stuff to learn.

Found the kernel----but it is unstable -- did't look ther. I wouild rather not use an unstable version. Is that the only way to get access to the disks on the ide controller?

Just had a look at the 2.4.18-k7 config file and also lists CMD64x support so it looks like you can build it into the kernel (extract from config below);

Hi,

You wrote that make xconfig is easier. When I tried it I got these messages and ended with an error. What went wrong?

Using make menuconfig worked.

You'll probably have to install tk8 via apt.

Now I have a kernel panik.

I got the kernel-source-2.4.22-2.4.22.org (Debian testing) adn compiles a new kernel. I used the old config-2-2-18 file and changes two items. I chose AMD-K& cpu and I chose Silicon Images under IDE.

KERNEL PANIC could not read file system.

So I added ext3 under file system and recompiled. Still kernel panic!!

Is it a wrong setting inlilo.conf or is it a wrong choice in a compliation of the kernel? What do I need to change now?

I can still start the copmuter with a floppy disk.

I ahve been fiddling with this for a long time now. It is getting frustrtating......It should not be so difficult to install a new operating system.

Or does anyone have a suggestoin for a simple ide card that will work with a stable Debian kernel?????



Here some of my computer's info.

Firstly your lilo although I recommend you use grub;
lba32
boot=/dev/hda
root=/dev/hda3
install=/boot/boot-menu.b
map=/boot/map
delay=20
vga=normal
default=Linux
image=/vmlinuz
label=Linux
read-only
initrd = /initrd.img
image=/vmlinuz.old
label=LinuxOLD
read-only
optional

and;

ls /boot
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 806912 Oct 20 06:29 initrd.img-2.4.22-amdk6
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1127769 Oct 19 22:47 vmlinuz-2.4.22-amdk6

I suggest the following lilo;

lba32
boot=/dev/hda
root=/dev/hda3
install=/boot/boot-menu.b
map=/boot/map
delay=20
vga=normal
default=Linux
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-amdk6
initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.4.22-amdk6

label=Linux
read-only
initrd = /initrd.img
image=/vmlinuz.old
label=LinuxOLD
read-only
optional

If you have a look under / there should be initrd.img.old (2.4.18-bf2.4) and initrd.img (2.4.44-amdk6) and vmlinuz (2.4.22-amdk6) and vmlinuz.old (2.4.18-bf2.4)

I have changed lilo and I have tried grub (from a floppy disk) but it will not boot. It seems as if when the Silicon Image module is in the kernel and the SiI IDS card is installed, then the system sees the two hard disks on teh SiI IDE card as hda adn hdc. My system is not on these new disks but is in the hard disk that is the master disk on the primary IDE bus on the mother board.

When I remove the SiI ide card then the kernel will boot correctly evne if the SiI module is compiled intot the kernel.

Then I made a kernel without teh SiI module but as aa loadable module. It of course booted even with teh SiI ide card installed. Then I used modconf to install teh siimage module. The result was:


SiI680: ide controller at PCI slot 00:12.8
PCI: Found IRQ 5 4 device 00:12.8
SiI680: chipset revision 2
SiI680: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
SiI680: BASE CLOCK == 133
ide0: MMIO-DMA , BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio
ide1: MMIO-DMA , BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
hda: lost interrupt
hda: lost interrupt
hda: lost interrupt
hda: lost interrupt
hda: lost interrupt
hda: lost interrupt
hda: lost interrupt
hda: lost interrupt

etc...
...ad infinitum

until I punched the reset button.

Si it seems as if even after the system is booted on the hda (master HD on primary bus) the SiI BIOS still only will seee a hda-hd on the SiI card.

Any new suggestions on how to access these hard disks?

Any suggestions for a simple ide card (no fancy raid bios)?

Greetings,

Eric
