eSATA, Adaptec 1225SA not working


Hi,

i have problems with a Adaptec 1225SA eSATA-Controller. On the Controller is a Sil3132 chip. I've looked in nearly every HowTo etc. i found but this fsck controller is still not working ;(

This is what i got:

[root@dba01 ~]# uname -a
Linux dba01 2.6.18-128.el5.ADSK #1 SMP Mon Mar 9 09:20:08 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

This is a slightly modified kernel from Autodesk, based on RedHat5

I have found this Controller as supported by Kernel 2.6. I was expecting some notices in dmesg or /var/log/syslog when i connecting a external drive to the eSATA-Controller but nothing happens.

I'm out of ideas now, so i greatly appriciate any hints.

Thanx

Also...

There is also a driver for RHEL 5 and others if that is a easier place to start.

Hmm, i was expecting problems right from the moment i realized the Autodesk "manipulated" kernel...

And the other link seems to be broken....

But at the moment i have no time for a deeper investigation. Because the installation is very old i think i'll install a fresh RH5 and give it a new try.

I'll keep you informed

Thanx
