For some reason I can't enable dma for my eide harddrive with this chipset. I was able to with last computer it was in (I forget which chipset it had, though). From google I was able to see that a few others encountered the same problem. Probably would be more but it is a relatively new motherboard and most people are using SATA drives nowadays. Unfortunately, none of the 2-3 hits I found on google provided a resolution to this issue so I thought I would ask for suggestions here.
So far I have tried multiple kernel configurations thinking that perhaps one of the generic drivers was conflicting with the sis5513 one, but that doesn't appear to be the case. I also tried disabling acpi, but to no avail. My kernel config, dmesg output and hdparm errors can be found here: www.mentalcases.net/dmaproblem. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
