Indeed, that's what it was 8-] It's working just fine now, thanks! I'm still fighting with the recent 2.6.20 as it doesn't seem to recognize my disk, but 2.6.17 is fine as well so far. Just dm-crypt is *very* strange: | cryptsetup -s256 luksFormat /dev/hda5 | | WARNING! | ======== | This will overwrite data on /dev/hda5 irrevocably. | | Are you sure?

WTF?! And BTW, HD performance leaves much to be desired---is this normal for a 250 MHz MIPS? My 68040/40 Amiga did not much worse over its 7 MHz bus: | ann ~ # dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M of=/dev/hda5 | dd: writing `/dev/hda5': No space left on device | 1871+0 records in | 1870+0 records out | 1961132544 bytes (2.0 GB) copied, 208.289 s, 9.4 MB/s | ann ~ # hdparm /dev/hda | | /dev/hda: | multcount = 32 (on) | IO_support = 1 (32-bit) | unmaskirq = 1 (on) | using_dma = 1 (on) | keepsettings = 0 (off) | readonly = 0 (off) | readahead = 256 (on) | geometry = 19846/16/63, sectors = 20005650, start = 0 I was planning to put a partly crypted drive from my HPPA box in there, and I hoped at about twice the clock it would perform better... cheers!
