Dma, Reiserfs

i have slackware on my laptop aspire 3610, and recompiled the kernel 2.6.26 and everythings works fine in linux/ext3, recently i reinstalled slack but this time with reiserfs, and recompiled kernel with same .config file, after reboot with new kernel, appear this message

Warning: The dma on your hard drive is turned off.
This may really slow down the fsck process.

how i can resolve this problem?

use the command 'hdparm', I believe the option is '-d' to toggle dma. In any case check the man page before doing anything but I believe the command would be something like 'hdparm -d /dev/xxx' (replace xxx with the device in question i.e. hda, sda, etc.)

thanks for replying, i tried hdparm -d1 /dev/hda, but it gives me a permission denied error.
After viewing this thread, i resolved the problem.

the problem is i hasn't enabled intel chipset in the kernel, so enabled and recompiled again. It's weird that in ext3 didn't accused this error and in the reiserfs accused, anyway the problem is resolved.
