I need another IDE pci card... anyone suggest one that works with linux (Suse 9.1)?


Anyone know of a IDE pci card that works with linux (specifically SuSe 9.1)

It must be PCI, dual channel, and support ATA/100 (at least) Raid functions aren't necessary; i will be using md and raidutils anyway.

How about these? (found on pricewatch)

Silcon Image SIL0680
Generic pn-320486 (ITE 8212 chipset)

Thank you very much for any help at all!

-Jonathan

http://hardwaredb.suse.de/?LANG=en_UK <---suse's HCL would be the best place to be sure of what's compatible with what you use.

Thank you. The two aforementioned cards have debatable linux performance, but they do have drivers available according to a 6 hour google campaign. They have support for redhat 9, and all distro's published in that period (Mandrake 9, SuSe 8.2, etc)

I did find that the Promised Utra ATA/100 has full SuSe support (the in the SuSe HCL, which i didn't know existed) although it's not ata/133, i guess my next hard drives will be serial ATA anyway so ATA/133 expansion room isn't all that important. I can nab the promise controller for $24 off of a site on pricewatch, not a bad deal. I also remember rumors a few months back that the Promise Ultra can be converted to a fasttrack raid controller with a razor blade and two resistors and a reflash of it's bios. Interesting....

Thank you for your guys' help! I let you know how the RAID turns out. I have another thread running in software now about the best way to transfer my existing settings to a newer hardare RAID... PLease stop by and glance at that!
