    Ah, nice to read. Since I use a SB7xx. Very nice.

    Default SB7xx problems

    I have an AMD SB700. Does this news matter to anyone besides coreboot users? When I ran Ubuntu 8.04 my computer had no problems. Now with 9.04 I get "softreset error"s while the computer boots, but they don't hurt except for a 10 second pause before things continue as normal.
    Will this documentation improve the way Linux works with my motherboard?

    The "softreset errors" are mostly caused by some ATA device and often just mean "right now the disk is not ready".
    After a few seconds or less than a second, when the drive is ready, the boot continues.
    Nothing to worry about.

    Remove the sata controller Port Multiplier (PMP) support from the kernel to fix this.
