Question Kernel support SATA Maxtor 80Gb Y6080M0


Hi community ,

I have this problem trying to compiling my kernel 2.4.29 I miss some configurations to support my SATA Maxtor 80Gb Y6080M0. Someone know the right options to have support.

Error message follow:

VFS: Cannot open root device "806" or 08:06
Please append a correct "root=" boot option

Thanks in advance.

It has probably nothing with your Maxtor disk, but with your controller. Try to discover which is your SATA controller (if it is onboard, check your motherboard manual, or the manufacturer's website). Probably there's a way to discover the brand from inside Linux, but I don't know how.

The SATA drivers are inside "SCSI support". You have to enable the drivers that match your controller.

I suspect you are wasting your time. If you are using sata.i, your listing shows;
Quote:
Partition check:
sda: sda1 sda2 sda3 < sda5 sda6 >
Certainly looks like the disk has been found to me - in fact both the on-board controllers are found.

Check your grub.conf (damn, Slack forum - make that lilo) the root will need to be /dev/sda? - not /dev/hda?

You can find the manual for your MB here: http://www.asus.com/support/download...5P800&Type=All

It says that you have an Intel ICH5 chipset. I think you have to enable "Intel PIIX/ICH SATA Support" under "SCSI low-level drivers", which is under "SCSI support".

Anyway here is the output of diff when comparing the config files of bare.i and sata.i:

Code:
amwink@schwarz:~> diff /mnt/cdrom/kernels/bare.i/config /mnt/cdrom/kernels/sata.i/config
504c504
< CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SIIMAGE=y
---
> # CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SIIMAGE is not set
593,603c593,603
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_AHCI=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SVW=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_ATA_PIIX=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_NV=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_PROMISE=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SX4=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SIL=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SIS=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_ULI=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_VIA=m
< CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_VITESSE=m
---
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_AHCI=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SVW=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_ATA_PIIX=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_NV=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_PROMISE=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SX4=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SIL=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SIS=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_ULI=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_VIA=y
> CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_VITESSE=y
You can use it to guide you when choosing what to put in your new kernel. Your driver is probably the CONFIG_SCSI_ATA_PIIX.

And, as syg00 said, SATA disks are listed as /dev/sd?, not /dev/hd?. You have to adjust your lilo.conf.

Good luck!

Thumbs up

Well guys,

I dont well, but I try to use the config file of sata.i and I just add my specific hardware, but i get several errors, at the end I just add the modules to my new kernel and now is working well.

I want to compile well the kernel and have just what I need in it, is good to have a embedded system.

now I get another problem with my mouse, and this is another issue to have well working my system.

Thanks for your help
