Hi all again..<br><br>Reading the post of Tedwardo I remember a problem with a SATA disk, the Gentoo livecd was not detected my SATA disk, looking for other people with that problem I found this:<br><br>Use libata.ata_enabled=1
, unfortunnely I sold that pc and I have no time to try that.. but my point is: have you ever seen that problem?, have you any idea about it?<br><br>Thank you very much in advance...<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">

also, a good debugging technique is to add support for all devices first then eliminate (work top down).<br>so modularize all the sata devices available in the kernel, then if it works you can start taking some at, wittling it down.
<br>(i know with my nw8440 the sata was originally labeled incorrectly in the output of lspci)<br>...if it still doesn&#39;t work then you know it&#39;s not a problem with the drivers :D<br><br>good luck <br><br><div><span class="q">

Hi,<br><br>I am trying to set up a T43 with grub.<br><br>I installed grub, set up the grub.conf file and it gets past the splash<br>screen and starts to load devices, then a kernel panic:<br><br>Cannot open root device &quot;sda3&quot; or unknown-block (2,0)
<br><br>This lapttop has sata drive I guess, I have the kernel sata driver<br>loaded, and I have tried all kinds of various alternatives such as hda3,<br>sda1, hda1, (hd0,0) etc...&nbsp;&nbsp;I know that the &quot;root&quot; is correct because
<br>the splash screen is fine.<br><br>Does anybody have experience setting up grub on a T43?<br><br>Thanks<br>rick<br><br><br><br>--<br><a href="mailto:gentoo-laptop@g.o" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">
