Ultra Dma Mode 5


Hi everybody!

I'm trying to install gentoo 1.4 stage 3, but I get a error once in a while like this

hdc: dma_intr: status=0x51 {DriveReady SeekComplete Error}
hdc: dma_intr: error=0x81 {DriveStatus Error BadCRC}
hdc: dma_intr: status=0x51 {DriveReady SeekComplete Error}
hdc: dma_intr: error=0x81 {DriveStatus Error BadCRC}
hdc: dma_intr: status=0x51 {DriveReady SeekComplete Error}
hdc: dma_intr: error=0x81 {DriveStatus Error BadCRC}
hdc: dma_intr: status=0x51 {DriveReady SeekComplete Error}
hdc: dma_intr: error=0x81 {DriveStatus Error BadCRC}
ide1: reset: succes

and then it turns back to normal

even if I do (or **DID** ) a "hdparm -X69 -d1 /dev/hdc"

I tried to install it about 20 time today, sometimes I don't even get the error, even in those times GRUB gives me a "error: 16" meaning that something's wrong with the filesystems?

Enabling or disabling DMA doesnt change anything during the installation than speed and performance

I ALWAYS get this error

PLEASE HELP

PS. The harddisk is Maxtor DiamondPlus 45 7200rpm 15.3 GB

Thanks!

Hi

I've got exactly the same problem, i have a maxtor 120gb 7200rpm 8mb cache. everytime i tried to install stage 3 tarball from gentoo (athlon xp) ih had those errors and after install my boot hangs with ; " bummer, couldn't load /etc/init.d/rcS" or something like that.

after many retries i installed gentoo on my second hd (60gb barracuda from seagate) without any problems, and gentoo runs without any problems now. As for the maxtor, i have mandrake 9.1 and slackware running on it just fine.

Anyone seen or had this before ? if I check my disk, everything is fine and no errors on disk, I tried ext3 and reiserfs (my curent fs).

Thx

Yes

I can get Slackware 9.0 working on it but gentoo...

It doesn't hang, but mine doesn't boot, because of these read errors

Help!

Gentoo livecd enables dma by default, and i tried to turn it off to see if that would be any help, but i couldn't get it to turn off, using hdparm -d0 gave me some kind of error and dma stayed on, I remember havng seen a boot option to disable dma when booting the livecd (just press F2 to see what it is), I'll try tommorow to see if it helps (can't do it now because kde's still compiling...)
hdparm -d0 works both on slack as mandrake.
