Default Re: Socket F, mcp55, mcp65 and drivers.

There's some good news on sata_nv supporting NCQ. Kernel 2.6.24 has support for software NCQ, according to Kernel Newbies. According to the nVidia engineers' commit log, NCQ is disabled by default. You have to enable it by appending swncq=1 to your kernel boot line.

Well, it's a start.

Very nice, nightmorph.

Add the Software NCQ support to sata_nv.c for MCP51/MCP55/MCP61 SATA
controller. NCQ function is disable by default, you can enable it
with 'swncq=1'. NCQ will be turned off if the drive is Maxtor on
MCP51 or MCP55 rev 0xa2 platform.
Now I'm back to the problem that NVidia doesn't even publish a list of which MCH* is in which NForce*.

Which MCP does an NForce4 SLI chipset have?

lspci can tell you that - if you own such a board. If not - since it is 2008 why buying something old?

Like hell I'm going to buy a board with NVidia chipset if they don't even publish a clear table with what chipset has which controller.

Ok,

I can tell you somthing:
I have a nforce 520 board.
The board has the MCP65 controller.
This controller supports AHCI.
Some revisions of this controller have problems with MSI.
This controller supports NCQ but does not set the right flag.
Monday a patch on linux-ide was posted that deactivates MSI with problematic revisions and enables NCQ. I am testing this patch, it works fine so far.

NVIDIA-employees were part of the solution finding process.
