Calling tomk Kernel guru...

Need to make sure 2.6.18-rc* has got jmicron stuff built in added

CONFIG_BLK_DEV_JMICRON=y

not sure how to test if its there/working

any idea where I can find out?

Fed Core 5 has a boot option all-generic-ide would that work under arch?

sorry for the FC hate swearing on forums lol

No I am not afriad of cli ;-)

Re: Calling tomk Kernel guru...

nice thanks...

Loading FC5 now not what I wanted but I need a way of booting Arch from old drive...

may give more info on system .....

Arch install CD works but does not see drives HD or DVD so I guess its drivers thing

Cannot wait to get this baby running......

Re: Calling tomk Kernel guru...

It seems jmicron hasn't made it into rc4. You would need to add the 2.6.18-rc4-mm3 patch.

Re: Calling tomk Kernel guru...

I'm going to assume that, as you're using tpowa's PKGBUILD, you're also using mkinitcpio, in which case you need jmicron as a module, not built in - in other words

CONFIG_BLK_DEV_JMICRON=m

The module will then need to be included in your initcpio image, either by using the autodetect and ide hooks, or by listing it in the mkinitcpio.conf MODULES array..

Re: Calling tomk Kernel guru...

rebuilt using m option still refuses to boot guess I will have to wait for 2.6.18 or new beyond

<*> JMicron JMB36x support under <*> Generic PCI IDE Chipset Support

not sure if that needs to be set in menuconfig or something

Added autodetect to mkinitcpio ,,,,

Re: Calling tomk Kernel guru...

Possibly autodetect missed it, as it's brand new. Add the modules to the initcpio MODULES array, and see what happens.

Re: Calling tomk Kernel guru...

Have a look in /lib/modules/2.6.18-rc4-ARCH/kernel/drivers/ide/pci - it should jump out at you.
