OK, who said it was a Lite-On problem? Go to the head of the class. I just
removed all my ATA devices, installed my (crappy) Sil0680 software RAID card
temporarily and gave each device its own IDE channel. Whatever channel I put
the Lite-On LTR-48246S onto showed the following in dmesg:
ata1-slave: WARNING - SETFEATURES recovered from missing interrupt
with my kernel that works, p0. This is taken, of course, from the dmesg after
I put everything back the way it was. The original message was ata0-master. I
haven't tried compiling the latest source on this machine yet, since I figure
I have to get rid of this problem before I stand a fighting chance of getting
the new ata drivers working on here.
So it seems the LTR-48246S is the problem device. Bummer. It works nicely with
K3b and xcdroast, too. I shall upgrade to the latest firmware if I can find a
binary file of SS0E (why do these people assume we all have Windoze boxes to
upgrade firmware?) and see what happens.
UPDATE: Nothing happened with firmware update to SS0E. Still got the same
Any ideas? Is there some way this can be worked around? Any logs, etc.
