  1. openSUSE 10.3 not detecting SATA HD

    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
    Hash: SHA1

    When I boot up the openSUSE 10.3 DVD it takes about 30 seconds or more to
    load the sata_sis driver. So I'm wondering if that's broke. I've tried
    acpi=off, which didn't work. I've tried turning off ACPI in bios and
    acpi=off which didn't work. I tried the Kernel Safe Settings, which didn't
    work. I tried brokenmodules=sata_sis, which didn't work.

    I have two HD's. The primary one is PATA which is where I install the OS.
    The secondary HD is a SATA which I store /home. As I write this I'm on
    openSUSE 10.2 and all my hardware is working fine.

    What would change in 10.3 that would make SATA all of a sudden non
    responsive?

    I had the same problem. The solution was: F% safesettings.

    I've all ready tried that. From all the information I've gathered from
    multiple sources, they're using a "state of the art" kernel. Meaning
    bleeding edge. And the module for sata_sis may be broken.

    Here's others having the same problem,...
