    Default [SOLVED] ATI IXP SB400 SATA & PATA Controllers - Kernel Config

    Hello,

    I've been trying to make a custom kernel for my laptop, but I can't figure out which kernel options to enable in order to include support for the ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 chipset using the new libata interface...

    I have built in SCSI support and AHCI, ATA SFF and ATI PATA support, but I get a kernel panic on booting the kernel. Ext3 support is also built in.

    I know it has to work for the gentoo install CD uses the /dev/sda method for accessing the hard drive just fine. Am I missing some configuration here?

    Can somebody help me with this? This is the output of lspci:

    livecd ~ # lspci | grep -i ide
    00:12.0 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 Serial ATA Controller (rev 80)
    00:14.1 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 IDE Controller (rev 80)
    You can find a copy of my .config file here: http://discworld.dyndns.info/config
