Description Milo Jahensen 2007-09-28 05:20:02 UTC
I just added a SIL3112a generic SATA controller and 2 Optiarc
DVD RW AD-7170S/1.00 drives. Machine has an existing IDE controller

During boot system hangs after displaying cd0 messages (IDE). Problem
goes away after rebooting to original kernel.


How-To-Repeat: Boot with atapicam enabled

I read the wrong part number off of the box, this is the dmesg string  
for the card:

atapci3: <SiI 3512 SATA150 controller> port  
mem 0xfaaffc00-0xfaaffdff irq 16 at device 8.0 on pci4

Also, it appears to hang when dd-ing from a cd to /dev/null. There is  
another open ticket for a hang related to a similar chipset when used  
with a harddisk.

Comment 2 Remko Lodder 2007-09-28 08:37:04 UTC
So the original kernel is the GENERIC kernel delivered by 6.2? And the new
kernel that fails is a GENERIC KERNEL with ATAPICAM added?
Kind regards,

Yes, but I got the silimage model number wrong.

It's 3512a.

If I stress the controller (dd if=/dev/acd1 of=/dev/null bs=512k) the
machine will hang before completion with the GENERIC kernel.

When I searched for 3512 I found an existing open bug for hangs, so I
assume it's a bad card.

I just ordered 2 more SATA controllers, a VIA chipset and a
jr-something. I am just trying to use some SATA DVD-Rs.

If you like, I can send you the silimage card, so you can test.

atapicam is no more after FreeBSD 9.x. Long live atacam and friends.
