--- Comment #19 from Tejun Heo <teheo@xxxxxxxxxx>  2007-08-31 17:21:45 MST ---
Seems like a wiring or cable detection problem to me.  The cable probably isn't
capable of UDMA/133 and pukes when asked to transfer data at that speed.  After
a few such failures, libata backs down to lower speed and it becomes okay;
however, at that point, reading partition table already has failed.

Johannes, please post /var/log/boot.msg of opensuse10.2 boot media.  I'm
curious whether amd74xx or ide-generic is being used and if amd74xx is being
used it had any different opinion about the cable.  (ide-generic never uses DMA
so it doesn't matter).

Also, how is your drive wired?  Are you using a 80-c cable?  If the drive is
the only one on the channel, is it connected to the end connector or the middle
one?
