Some modules


I am looking for some modules for my HD, I posted a thead and got a reply which said to just try the ones with my Dis (Debian). I am just wondering where can I find these modules on the CD?
Sorry of the extreme newbie question, and yeah I searched.

Thanks,
Halman

If I've understood this correctly I believe the meant the modules for you linux kernel.
To get a module for your kernel it is probably best to download the kernel source from www.kernel.org and compile the modules by yourself to make them as efficient for your computer as possible.

If you don't like the idea of compiling modules by yourself I might send you the ones you desire precompiled (if I have them compiled) although I can't guarantee that they'll work on your system.

Reply if you need help compiling modules.

The module I need is one for an IDE controller. Linux Mandrake recongized my controller before but my performence was not nice. I am looking at that link and can't find the module selection. I am going to just try some arguement if I can for this, but I am having trouble with that too. As you can see I am a complete newbie really.

It would really be nice if my HD can be accessed at a acceptable speed. Any insight would be nice.

I see. But are you sure that you need new modules for this? Perhaps your IDE needs some performance tuning?
Try using hdparm - a good tutorial on the subject:

Thanks

Thanks for the tut. I am just looking for a boot <parameter> that I can use. It is really just getting my HD to work, cause mandrake's hardware detection is better than Debian's, so I never had much trouble. The problem is just getting a module to run. I think I can get this my self and not waste anyone else's time. Thanks again.

I'll reply on this post if I need more help with it. Can't wait to get Debian working.
