Subject: [gentoo-user] Old IDE drives and the "newer" PATA kernel drivers
Date: Fri, 27 Aug 2010 07:38:33
1 Hi folks,
3 I been putting this off but it looks like the newer kernels are going to
4 push me to changing this real soon. I have a older system, Abit NF7 2.0
5 motherboard with the older IDE drives. I'm still using the older IDE
6 drivers. This is what I have currently:
8 hda Actual hard drive OS on this
9 hdb Actual hard drive Not in use
10 hdc Actual hard drive home partition
11 hdd DVD burner Duh! It's a burner.
12 sda Actual hard drive connected through a SATA PCI card. Misc stuff.
15 So, hda has the Gentoo OS on it and hdc is my /hone directory. I have
16 videos, mp3's and various other data on sda. Currently hdb is not
17 being used, since for those who keep up with my threads would know, it
18 is the one that is terribly slow. Something along the lines of
19 10Mbs/sec or something of that nature. It's just hard to get out of
20 the case right now and I can't get to it with a hammer either. :/
22 My theory is something like this: hda will become sda; hdb will become
23 sdb; hdc will become sdc; hdd will become sdd; and sda will become
24 sde. Would that be a logical expectation? Anybody see anything that
25 may cause a hiccup on this change? I know I have to update fstab before
26 rebooting. I may also have a sledge hammer or a really big shotgun
27 close by, just in case it gets any bad ideas like messing up /home. ;-)
29 I'm currently using this:
31 AMD and nVidia IDE support
33 This would be the new, possibly improved, version of things:
35 AMD/NVidia PATA support
37 Correct?
39 I'm just wanting to cover a few bases and make sure I am on the right
40 track and understand things before I blow up something.
42 Thanks.
44 Dale
46 :-) :-)
