    Karsten, can you check if this problem is still there with current
    kernels? i.e. 2.6.23 or 2.6.24

    I'll check it, but I probably won't be able to do so before
    next week.

    Karsten,

    Do you actually still have your SWARM?

  6. Bug#404950: Disk is advertised as partition on SWARM

    Thiemo, do you see this bug with 2.6.26? Or, rather, does IDE work at
    all? I know some new SWARM IDE patches went into 2.6.27, so I've no
    idea if 2.6.26 works at all.
