kernel 2.4.25 & sata_via module


Does the kernel 2.4.25 provide support for sata_via? If it is so then where do I configure the sata_via part in the kernel? Because i'm using kernel 2.4.22-1.2174.nptl provided by fedora which include sata_via module.

I also have problem with making initrd file. When I ran "mkinitrd /boot/xxx xxx", it said "sata_via module not found in /lib/modules/2.4-25/kernel/scsi/drivers" then it failed to create initrd-xxx.img file. I use grub for bootloader.

Do you have the source files for the old kernel? Try to "Load an alternate configuration file" in make menuconfig. Type in ../linux-2.4.22 <something> /.config, and recheck that important modules are still enabled. This should migrate your old configuration.

No. I don't have that (I formatted everything to install fedora). But why mkinitrd failed to make intrd file? (as I described above). It seem to refer to something that does not exist, I mean I don't think I make checked sata_via module during configuration, and then it said I missed the module and I needed to have that to create initrd file. If I mkinitrd with --disable-scsi option, it can create initrd file though.
