Need advice on SATA Hard disk and Controller which is 100% Linux Compatible
My drive (Seagate 200GB SATA) was a blacklisted drive in the kernel(along with the silicon Image 3112 controller), but performance was four times slower cause of the blacklist..so I edited out the line. Unfortunately,after 3 months, I now have a drive with a couple of bad blocks..shit..dont know if its cause of the hack or cause of the heat(where i live, temp reaches 40C)..
Anyway I need your advice on what controller and SATA drive I should buy which is 100% Linux Compatible..I'm upgrading very soon so any names of those motherboard controller's is also helpful. Presently I use a Silicon Image 3112 controller(PCI).
p.s - are nvidia sata controllers on those MSI FX64 boards any good with linux?
