  1. Bug#445862: sata_nv driver won't work on linux-image-2.6.18-5-amd64

    Package: linux-image-2.6.18-5-amd64
    Version: 2.6.18.dfsg.1-13


    The amd64 kernel in Etch will not boot on motherboards based on the nvidia
    chipset, like my asus M2N4SLI as the sata_nv driver doesn't work and
    therefore hard-drives are not recognised. The 32bit Etch worked fine.

    The Etch amd64 installer is not able to load the sata_nv driver even by
    choosing it manually after automatic detection fails. By the way, the
    installation cd only boots with the noapic option (on the same system the
    32bit installer worked fine)

    I installed the amd64 kernel on my 32bit Etch system to install amd64 by
    debootstrap, but it hangs as well during boot time on drive recognition.

    Thank you very much for your atteniton,

    Roberto
