Debian :: Check If Mainboard Supports SATA-I Or SATA-II?

Jun 1, 2010

My motherboard supports SATA but I do not know which version: SATA-I or SATA-II. I want to buy a SSD so it would be pointless to buy a fast SSD if my motherboard only suports SATA-I

Ubuntu :: SATA II / Error "ata4: Limiting SATA Link Speed To 1.5 Gbps" - Allowing The SSD To Run At SATA II Speeds?

May 1, 2011

I keep getting this error in my log viewer every 2 seconds: Code: ata4: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps I have a dual boot SSD and I have run many SMART tests in windows and linux, (using smartmon tools and the disk utility) and the reports are all 100% healthy..... My research shows that this error represents one of the following:

1. Problem with SATA controller
2. Changing BIOS to allow SATA
3. Changing SATA mode to PATA or AHCI
4. Replacing the SATA cable
5. Allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds, i.e. 3 Gbps

- Does anyone know how to try number 5, i.e. allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds? I am lost here and this problem has caused my machine to crash twice when watching a movie in linux/ ubuntu. (It is worth noting that the crashes have only occurred in linux and I have never had an issue in windows, so it does seem to be a linux setting somewhere, hence why I think it is a "allowing SATA II to run at correct speeds issue")

Ubuntu :: SATA Libata Verses Silicom Images SATA Module

Jun 21, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04, and happened to have an Silicom Images PCXpress card plugged in, and it kindly added the sil_sata module.This is fine for this chip set.I think that my earlier installation of Ubuntu 9.04 used Libata, which does support NCQ and also has good legacy support for the Intel Intel ICH7 chipset I have inside my Sony Vaio SZ notebook. Also, libata also support Silicon Image chipsets as far as I can tell from URL...I wish to remove the Silicom Images SATA modules and replace this with libata and then test the performance between the two device drivers.

Debian :: How To Check If Video Card Supports KMS

Oct 3, 2015

How do you check if a computer's video card will support Kernel Mode Switching BEFORE OS installation?

In this example I have an Acer Aspire AST180-UA381B.

Manufacture website says my video card is: Integrated nVidia MCP61

[URL] ....

Nouveau code list says: NV4C (MCP61) GeForce 6150LE / nForce 400/405, GeForce 6150SE Quadro NVS 210s / nForce 430

[URL] ....

I want to know:

1. How to tell if my graphics card will support KMS before I install the OS?

2. If it does not support KMS which kernel options should be passed to get it to work properly with the nouveau driver?

3. Ultimately I am looking for a tool that should be included in the installation screen that will:

a. identify your hardware: list the hardware detected on the screen
b. highlight with color code any hardware listed that is not supported or poorly supported: in this case graphics drivers
c. perform a quick benchmark test of your hardware: In this case I want the benchmark to tell me what capabilities my graphics card has.
d. automatically recommend and set the best kernel parameters for a successful boot: if the graphics card needs nomodeset or modeset=0 or whatever I want it to do it for me.

Also I started a personal blog about this issue which I intend to compose into guide to assist others with this question. [URL] ....

My goal is to create a boot disc that will automate proper installation of graphics or other hardware for a system BEFORE installation. I would like to see this feature included in the Debian installation screen.

Hardware :: PATA Socket Was Replaced With SATA Socket / Transfer Rate Of The Harddisk Would Be SATA Transfer Rate?

Jul 4, 2010

My friend bought an old hard drive. He noticed something with the hard drive that it was just replaced with a SATA socket. So meaning, the SATA socket was soldered to the PATA hard disk to replace the PATA socket to SATA socket to make it a SATA.

Now the question is:

1. Does the Transfer Rate of the harddisk (that has been replaced from PATA socket to SATA socket) would be SATA transfer rate? OR would still be PATA transfer rate?

Debian :: SATA DVD Drive Not Detected During Lenny Install?

Nov 17, 2010

I am trying to install Debian 5.0 "Lenny" on a PC with a very new hardware config (i3 processor, DDR3 RAM,LG SATA DVD drive, and Seagate SATA HDD). During the hardware detection phase of installation, I get a message saying the driver for my CD drive is not known, and asking me to select one manually. The options I get are only 'devcdrom', which does not work, and my installation cannot proceed.

I tried the following:

1. I read in a similar query that to use SATA DVD drives, I will have to set some boot options, so tried entering install libatapi_enabled=1 as an install option. This showed 'unknown parameter' error followed by same problem.

2. My Intel m/b BIOS has an option to set the DVD drive to "Native" or "Legacy", default is Native. I also tried changing this to "Legacy". Still same problem.

3. Read that I have to point to different drivers, but don't know how to do this during the installation.

Debian Hardware :: Sata-controller: Find Out Which One Build In Pc?

Debian :: Internal SATA Disk Slower When Running On Battery?

I have Etch running in my laptop. I found that if the laptop is only running on battery, the disk seems to performs slower than if I running on a power adapter. How do I possibly check the setting and fix it?

I'm the only user on the system most of the time and I keep it as minimal as possible so it's not other services and programs keeping the disk busy.

Debian :: SATA Raid, /home Partition Mounting Error?

Nov 9, 2010

I've installed debian squeezy recently and for some reason I have problems with mounting /home partition during startup.

There's an error:Mounting local filesystems...mount: special device /dev/mapper/isw_bbfedcffgi_Volume0p6 does not exist. failed

I've tried using fsck - no result the file system is healthy, I've tried formatting it once again (fresh copy, no user data) and it's not working. What is more mounting the partition manually goes well - I can read the data and write to it. All other partitions are ok.

I have no idea what's going on and why mounting /home fails. I've written this post on Polish debian users forum, but no response - only to give more info, so I'll put it here also:

ls -al /dev/mapper

crw------- 1 root root 10, 59 Nov 9 19:34 control

Debian Hardware :: Sata Errors While Building Mdadm Raid 5?

I received some errors while running a benchmarking script to determine my ideal raid chunk size. There are several errors in the kernel log regarding the sata link and eventually the two drives i have connected to a pci express x1 sata card were no longer present in /dev/

the script i was using is available here [URL]..system specs 1 500gb western digital drive (system drive)3 2tb samsung f4 drives (2 connected to pci x1 card (sata II) and 1 onto onboard sata port (sata I)) single core amd 64 on SiS chipset debian 64bit testing

Debian Hardware :: Sdparm Not Stopping SATA Disk In Squeeze

Debian :: Restore User Directory After Trying To Mount A SATA Drive

Jan 21, 2011

This is on Debian Lenny 5.0.7 with a LXDE desktop. Using Root Terminal I have just been trying to mount a SATA drive NTFS file system using the command: mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /dev/

unfortunately the /sdb1 should of been 'sdc1', I think, and what's happened is that my username and files have been moved somewhere else. PCMan File manager has ceased to work and open applications have ceased to be able to save files.

How do I discover where they went, and how do I restore them back to the original place of debian:/home/username/ ?

I'm about 8 hours in to learning Linux/Debian and desperately trying leave behind about 15 years of Windows use for something better. I'm used to troubleshooting electronics/hardware/all manner of things but the syntax here is, at the moment, a slippery slope.

Debian Installation :: No More SATA - Releases Freeze Up Almost Instantly After Loading The Kernel

Apr 13, 2011

I'm trying to install Debian 6.0.1a (64bit) onto a machine that had Debian 5.08. It freezes up almost immediately after loading the kernel. The last line, about 2.6 seconds in, is where it found a SATA drive. (There are two SATA drives). This is a Tyan S2912 with Opteron 2347HE. It seems to be kernel release related. I tried the 5.08 disc again, and it works OK.

With other distros, such as Opensuse and Ubuntu, I have the same problem. The newer releases freeze up almost instantly after loading the kernel. Am I stuck with IDE drives or older kernels? I wanted to try something newer as the fonts in the 5.0.8 release were barely legible. It gave me nauseating headaches within a couple of hours of looking at it. My wife couldn't stand to see it when she came by. I've tried every bios setting change I could think of without a solution.

Debian Configuration :: Creating Udev Rule For Specific SATA Port

Apr 19, 2011

I have a trayless SATA hotswap bay that is really terrific for quickly attaching and removing SATA hard drives. I'm trying to write a udev rule to create a symbolic link to the device node for the drive that is attached through the hotswap bay (/dev/bay -> /dev/sdX). This eliminates any ambiguity when performing destructive tasks (fdisk, etc). I'm running squeeze amd64. I've read through several tutorials and have it working somewhat. Here's the output of udevadm info for a drive attached via the hotswap bay.

looking at device '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:11.0/host7/target7:0:0/7:0:0:0/block/sdb':
KERNEL=="sdb"
SUBSYSTEM=="block"
DRIVER==""
ATTR{range}=="16"
ATTR{ext_range}=="256"
ATTR{removable}=="0"
ATTR{ro}=="0"
ATTR{size}=="156301488"
ATTR{alignment_offset}=="0"
ATTR{capability}=="52" ....

Here is my udev rule
DEVPATH=="/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:11.0/host7/*", SUBSYSTEM=="block", SYMLINK+="bay%n"

This produces the desired behavior and gives me an fdisk-able device node. The problem I am having is that the "host" component of the DEVPATH varies from bootup to bootup. I'm just using on onboard SATA, host2-7, specifically host7. There is also onboard PATA, host0-1. It seems to just be random which "host"s are assigned to which controller. For example, the next time I boot the system, the onboard SATA will be host0-5 and the onboard PATA will be host6-7. In this simple case, I could just write 2 rules, one for each possibility and it would still be correct because of the different PCI addresses of the two controllers. But on systems with more SCSI (uh... libata, actually) controllers, a "host" file can point to different physical ports between bootstraps. This would be bad. Does anyone know of a way to write a rule to tie a device node to a specific physical SATA port on the motherboard/hba?

Debian Hardware :: Won't Install On SATA - "crash" When Try

Aug 11, 2011

I've been trying to install Debian AMD64 on a new system I put together, including an MSI motherboard with SATA support. However, I can't install Debian as the system decides to "crash" when I try. It's a 500GB Western Digital drive that my brother rarely used and had laying around. I go through the process of installing with either the net install image on CD or the DVD image (DVD1), I get up to the point of being able to see the partitions as they would be made and everything looks great right up to the point where the program tries to format.

At that point the screen turns red, the computer informs me that the partition can't be made and offers the choice to either go back or continue. Either choice takes me back to the partition table and then when I back out of that, the partition that my boot record is on, is trashed as well.
