When I restarted to check , the "failed" message has disappeared, but
when I looked again in Yast runlevel, boot.idedma it has option B and
also runlevel 5 but it says "not running".
This is ok, because boot.idedma is no service or daemon. It is only a
script which is started once on booting.
Start up log says :
Setting up IDE DMA mode
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
Is there anything else I should do?
Maybe you want to check if dma is enabled with "hdparm /dev/hda", if it
is activated (1) everything is oki.
Checked , but it says DMA = 0 (off).
