Secondary EIDE Port--HOW?

Secondary EIDE Port--HOW?

Post by DavidPe » Mon, 26 Jun 1995 04:00:00



Just point me to the docs and I'll be a happy ?????.   I've been able to
find lots of stuff on EIDE but not on secondary port.

I've got DOS on drive 0, Linux on drive 1 on the primary port.  Secondary
port has two 1.2Gbyte drives dedicated to DOS, but Linux (at least the
levels I've go) don't have device drivers that will handle the int 15 and
I/O 170H-177H that the secondary port sits at.  

BTW: at the moment I'm running 1.0--guess I'll need to update to a newer
version along the way.

Thanks in advance (the checks in the mail).

Dave.

Hello Dave,

Yeah, updating should help alot.  I think it was 1.1.78(?) or so that
started having the improved EIDE code in it.   Just get one of the newer
versions and take a look at the readme and other files in the
/block/drivers (?) directory of the archive, it should help some.  Good Luck!

Well, you're answering your own question. Upgrade to 1.2.10 or something
and that'll do the job. Be sure to read /usr/src/linux/drivers/block/
README.ide.

I've noted quite a few folks having trouble getting IDE1 working, even after
reading README.ide, running MAKEDEV.ide1, reading the source for ide.c, etc..
I can't get either my PTI-255W (Winbond 83759F chipset) to work with ide0 & 1,
or disabling ide1 and running a second, plain vanilla ide card at 1f0. I've
tried setting the #define to ALLOW shared interrupt, as well as doing that plus
setting the irq for ide1 to 14. No go - but I get the same as lots of folks -
on boot up, it detects ide1, if I use hdparm -i, it reports my drive, but any
attempt to access it time out. At this point, I'm considering selling my CD-rom,
it's been so frustrating.

I have similar problem. I can't get my primary and secondary ide drives
to run at the same time. If I boot without dos-ide drivers, I get primary
ide working. If I boot with dos-ide drivers and specify hdc= and hdd=
parameters to loadlin.exe, I get secondary ide working.
On bootup it detects both ides with correct irq but it doesn't detect
any drives on other ide even if hda=,hdb=,hdc=,hdd= parameters are given.
And it doesn't enable any multiple modes to my newer hds even if dos
does.

Dos drivers do some extra initialization for my HT-6560B EIDE
controller to get secondary ide to work and primary ide not to work.
Perhaps I should have a look at those drivers.

 
 
 

1. Secondary EIDE port not detected

Hi,

I just bought a CD of slackware 2.3 and want to install it. I have made
the boot disk from "IDECD" image, but Linux only recognized my primary
IDE port - ide0 with irq 14.

Configuration:-
---------------

ISA motherboard with 486 DX/33 CPU (Of course, with the old AMI BIOS)
EIDE controller with both primary and secondary EIDE ports.

        Primary port connected 2 IDE harddisks
        Secondary port connected a EIDE Toshiba 4XCD-ROM

Problem:-
---------

Linux cannot recognize my Secondary EIDE port, i.e. ide1 with irq 15,
so, my CD-ROM also cannot be recognized for installation.

Can anyone kind to give my some suggestions on this issue? Thanks!!
