I'm trying to install arch64 on my new computer, but are having some problems. The default install cd doesn't detect my harddisk, since the sata2 chipset used isn't supported in the vanilla kernel. So I've build a new one with a kernel with the mm-patchset, and edited the sata-hook to include all of the i2c-drivers. The appropiate drivers (i2c_viapro and i2c_core) is now automaticly loaded, but no device nodes are created
I fear that the arch-initscript fails to create the nodes for some reason...
This is the hooks I got on the install-cd:
HOOKS="arch-ftp-install arch-bootmessage arch-motd arch-memtest arch-base arch-udev ide scsi sata arch-net arch-raid arch-lvm2 arch-filesystems arch-keymap"
If you have any tips or tricks how to get my harddisk detected, please let me know.
I found a solution to the problem: I just needed to include the sata_via driver on the install, and then it worked! So now i can install!!
I also needed to edit the hook setup while installing, otherwise when installing kernel the driver wasent included when trying to boot after install... A bit tricky, but possible
