Please point me to the 2.4.26 or 2.4.27 code that you are referring to

Manish,
Thanks for the pointer.

I am looking for the PCMCIA-IDE driver for the SWARM board in 2.6.x
I did see this driver in 2.4.26/27 but not in 2.6.10.

Do you have any suggestions on porting the PCMCIA-IDE driver from 2.4.27
to 2.6.x?

Regards
G.Muruganandam


I had posted a patch to this mailing list a few days back. The patch applies cleanly to the current tree and is currently checked in: drivers/ide/mips/swarm.c

Using this patch, Broadcom SWARM IDE works well

Thanks

Hello, How do I force the IDE to work in the PIO mode by including the option like "hdb=noprobe" in the setup.c?

My kernel version is 2.6.6 Thanks G.Muruganandam


Hello ! I would have thought "ide=nodma" at the command line would have

worked

Thanks Manish Lachwani
