redhat - probe ide

Post by vth.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00


Heeelp !
Not as easy as I thought to install this Red Hat !

I have a Promise ultra 66 controller.
I succeed to get it to work and see my disk by using the correct
parameter :
linux ide2=0xXXXX.

Now I put back in my Adaptec 2906 scsi controller.
My disk is not seen again and I got :
Kernel panic: VFS unable to moount rootfs

Is it possible, by passing parameter, to disable the probe of a pci
port. (As I don't really need my Adaptec card under linux right now)

I have a strange behavior -under windows- that might give you a clue of
the problem :

without the Adaptec card :
i/o range of the Promise card : 0x1408
irq 3

with the Adaptec card :
i/o range of the Promise card : 0x1808 (!)
irq 3

Both card are using the same irq (3).

A more general question would be :
where to find information on possible parameters for ide, irq...

Thanks a lot for your help.
