1 I've noticed quite a slowdown on my system lately so I was looking through
2 my dmesg for anything...odd.
4 This is what I found:
6 David@××××××××××××××××××××.net# dmesg|grep -i dma
7 ide0: BM-DMA at 0xc000-0xc007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:DMA
8 ide1: BM-DMA at 0xc008-0xc00f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
9 hda: dma_intr: status=0xd0 { Busy }
10 hda: DMA disabled
12 okaaay, what the heck is going on here? I've turned on dma with hdparm...but
13 according to hdparm -Tt tests (which seem to be REALLY slow) it doesn't seem
14 to do
