Summary: SATA HDDs attached to SouthBridge VIA VT 8251's SATA
are not detected during installation.
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.2
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Kernel
AssignedTo: kernel-maintainers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: publio.escipion.el.africano@xxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; es-ES; rv:1.9.1.9)
Gecko/20100317 SUSE/3.5.9-0.1.1 Firefox/3.5.9

I really do not know what else to say: I often assemble my computers (personal
or familiar) and it is a VIA Motherboard I bought new late 2006. Soon after
that, I installed on it openSuSE 10.2, and it is still running 10.2 today, and
works fine, very fine.
In fact, 10.2 was a very fine release.
However, the upgrade was needed and I tried to install openSuSE 11.2 on it
yesterday, after I were sure that the major bugs I had to deal were fixed.
However, the install system told me that there was no HDD to perform the
install.
I tried a different kernel at the boot up time; I tried loading one by one
almost all kernel modules in the section IDE/SCSI/RAID that were intended for
SATA; I realized that the the load of ahci was delayed, so I suggested to the
kernel brokenmodules=ahci; & c.
After my useless efforts, I decided to try a passed version: 11.0 Final x86_64.
I had the same result.
So, I took an older version: 10.3 Final x86_64... and it was the same result!
I can state the following: after 10.2, SATA HDDs attached to SouthBridge VIA VT
8251's SATA are not detected during installation of 10.3, 11.0 and 11.2, and it
is pretty sure that 11.1 neither detects the SATA HDD attacheed to 8251.

From 11.2 I got the following output:
ata1.00 failed to IDENTIFIED (I/O error, error_mask 0x4)
ata1.00 SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
ata1.00 qc time out (cmd 0xec)
N. B.:
line 2: SControl: I think it was what I read yesterday.

I hope that you might suggest me what else to do to install a newer version of
openSuSE in that computer, and that you might fix this for 11.3.
I thank you.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just run the install on a motherboard whose SATA HDDs were attached VIA VT
8251.
2.
3.
Actual Results:
SATA HDDs are not detected by the installation systems of openSuSE 10.3, 11.0,
[11.1,] 11.2 Final x86_64.

Expected Results:
SATA HDDs be detected by the installation systems of openSuSE 10.3, 11.0,
[11.1,] 11.2 Final x86_64.

openSuSE 10.2 works very fine.
