2 IDE Controllers with 1.2.13 - Problem?

2 IDE Controllers with 1.2.13 - Problem?

Post by Dag Adams » Mon, 05 Feb 1996 04:00:00


Has anyone been lucky enough to get two IDE controllers to work
on the same box.

Here's what I've come up with:


Master 540MB     HD

Sony             CD

All work under DOS can't mount CD in Linux


Master 540MB    HD
SLAVE  Sony     CD


All work under DOS and can Linux FDISK the GIG drive... but then when
I am in the middle of placing the file system on the  2nd drive -
- it burps - and inconsistantly at different times.

Just a limitation?  (should problably be using SCSI anyways)

I made sure the Master Slave settings were proper too.

Suggestions would be appreciated - I don't use the CD that much but it
would be nice.

Sorry - wrong newsgroup - unintentional -


1. strange problems 1.2.13 --> 2.0.0 --> 1.2.13


I have some strange problems with the new kernel source tree...

after the installation of the new sysvinit-2.62 the linux-2.0.0 kernel
complains sh:/bin/bash cannot execute...
with 1.99.7 this works fine
and at least I'm totally unable to recompile the 1.2.13 source tree due
some strange asm errors in main occurring in asm/io.h referenced by
bugs.h  (also within the asm tree). Of course I checked the appropriate
links to for the linux source tree /usr/include/linux

Please help....
