set maxphys = <8M> causes Ultra 5 IDE/ATA disks unsable

Post by Michael Wa » Mon, 29 Oct 2001 22:50:13



After setting maxphys = <8M> on Ultra 5 with two IDE/ATA disks, I can
not use any of the IDE/ATA disks. The error messages like the following
appears. Please advise why should I get the error, is there a way to
increase maxphys in this situation?  Thanks.
