Alright, here are my system specs:
Want to use: Debian Linux Pure64
Is there a way to enable PATA on the (Promise?) SX2 SATA controller for Debian Pure64 64-bit LinuxOS? I've researched but have come up with no conclusive answers as some of the technical aspects are bewildering.
I've run into:
use libata with patch.
Gentoo 5.0 should do it.
It's not supported.
Kernel 2.6.11 should do it.
Create my own bootdisk.
All the above.
Also posting in the Debian section.
Many thanks to those who reply
