Default Re: sata problem on SuSE 9.2

I've emailed to see if I can get any joy.

I simply cannot understand how they could have released 9.3
without support for sata disks, when they've been around for so long!

It's actually a kernel issue, 9.2 uses the 2.6.8 kernel.

However, if you can't get it to work on 9.3, which uses the 2.6.11 kernel I would have to question that it's a kernel issue.

I know that in Gentoo, Fedora, and Arch, Sata just plum does not work on 2.6.8 but it does on .11

Very strange.
The Adama maneuver was incredible, go watch Exodus pt 2.
