Well prior to the most recent version, calling it "beta" was putting
it kindly. I would call it broken :) which was why it was marked with
As of the most recent 2.6.5-rc2-bk snapshots, libata and sata_sil
should be pretty happy with each other.
I meant sata_via, I dunno why I said sata_sil; Freudian typo. I was
thinking of the current sii3112 I use, which has been stable and
blazingly fast for awhile with the IDE driver--and a little little patch
I keep applying. I'm looking to upgrade a server with 2 Raptors in it
to an A64 running 64-bit Linux of course. I wanna get the HDs off the
PCI bus and onto the VT8237 southbridge. I was wondering if the driver
for -that southbridge- was still considered beta.
