Dell Latitude 131L


I have a Dell Latitude 131L and I have the same problem.
Laptopīs harddisk is a sata device and the Slack doesnīt see it. Iīve tried all kernel (huge26.s, sata.s,scsi.s) and nothing.
I also tried use fdisk /dev/sda but thereīs no any sd* file in /dev/ (?!).
Iīve also tried other distros like ubunto and suse and no one can find the harddisk.
The dvd device is hda.

Any suggest?

Thanks

Dennis

Have you tried the latest kernel ? Have you tried the boot parameters mentioned in this thread ?

Kubuntu works

Iīve tried the kernel huge26.s (slack 11). Unfortunately, it doesnīt have worked.

However, I installed Kubuntu 6.10 (kernel 2.6.17) with boot parameter "pci=nomsi" and it works.
The harddisk was recognized as /dev/sda.

But, I still want to install a slackware.
