I have problem with via 6420 controller under linux (I have mandrake 9.1
with kernel 2.4.25 with libata patch version 16).
This controller has two sata and one pata channels. Sata channel works fine
with libata. My problem is with pata channel. I have pata hard disk on this
controller. Bios of the controller detected this disk but linux did not.
What is the current status of the driver for this controller?
Thank you for your time.
There are some patches floating around adding support for VT6410
(not VT6420) to generic IDE PCI driver. This controller may also work
with generic IDE PCI driver (PCI VendorID/ProductID needs to be added
to drivers/ide/pci/generic.h and drivers/ide/pci/generic.c).
BTW Does anybody has contacts in VIA?
