Question System Bus Speed

I installed RH7.1 and it works fine it is just that the kernel did not recongize my busspeed correctly. It is 133 and it assumes it is 33mhz. I know it is a boot problem that a boot command can solve I just dont know what command to use.

I believe the command you're looking for is idebus=xxx. Where ' xxx ' is the bus speed. Check here for more info on it. You can use it at the command line or put it in an append line in lilo.conf or add it to grub's menu.lst file.

Thanks for the post. I'll have to go try this out on my newly upgraded debian box with kernel 2.4.17. It uses grub, and I heard you could append idebus=xxx to the lilo command, but was unsure about grub. There doesn't seem to be too much doc about this.

You just add the command like this:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro vga=ask root=/dev/hda6 idebus=xxx
