…search. I need a PCMCIA card that will just work with my Dell M65, my Thinkpad A31 both using the 2.6.24-23-generic. The official list says I got it already (INEO, External SATA, 32bits Cardbus is making the *right* sata_sil driver load), but when I start computer with new 1TB Seagate 7600.11 attached, no drive. Might be drive speed issue.
blkid produces no record of the drive unless I connect it via usb cable (that’s how I got ext3 format on it).

yenta and sata_sil are 2 of 3 interrupts on 19

At least I am learning a lot about:

fstab, mtab and things like hwinfolspci -v and lspci -vvnn
Serial ATA (SATA) Linux hardware/driver status report
Silicon Image 3124 family

ubuntu 7.10…

20071120, 47

there are tons of reasons to install Ubuntu on the fastest, newest, available computer…especially if it has 2GB of memory and a vmware server!  That’s getting two machines for the price of one. Although engadget is right about old equipment being useful again with Ubuntu, Ubuntu really roars when given the same quality equipment one would give Windows Vista

With VMWare Convertor, and a couple hours work, I have all the benefits of of Gutsy Gibbon, while keeping my regular computer (Windows XP) running in a virtual machine. B-E-A-U-Tee-Full!

You might want a .gho of your hard disk as a restore point too.

wish I had found this four hours ago, but thanks cloud:

The g package is in the repositories. You do not need to get the binary from another resource. If youre having problems with the CD simply remove it as a resource in your sources.list file. Run
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and delete the line referring to the Ubuntu CD I cant remember off the top of my head what it says, but it should be obvious which one it is
then run
sudo apt-get update
before installing the packages you want.
