Default Marvel controller gives errors Squeeze

Hi,

I recently purchased a WD Cavier black 2TB SATA 6 HDD and it uses Marvel
on my motherboard with AHCI enabled.


Debian 6 is the only OS that will install on that drive, i have tried many.

I get this error while booting:

ata2.00: failed command: READ FPDMA QUEUED

Booting up takes very long compared to Ubuntu on another drive for instance.

Is there a driver for the marvel controller before my system crashes
again, i think i have done 20 installs in the last few days.


Cheers

Mark

Is ata2 your hdd? Run "dmesg | grep -i ata2" to find out.

IMO, AHCI is the better sata driver you can use and it comes from the
kernel itself. That said, a quick Google search for the error message
returns lots of hits, it seems that you are not alone...

yes looks like it:

[ 0.900101] ata2: SATA max UDMA/133 abar m2048@0xf3ff7000 port
0xf3ff7180 irq 35

[ 1.722809] ata2: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)

Am i right it's only working at 1.5 Gbps when it should be 6 Gbps?

hdparm -tT /dev/sda

/dev/sda:
Timing cached reads: 20022 MB in 2.00 seconds = 10021.38 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 368 MB in 3.10 seconds = 118.71 MB/sec

Would this be right or must i run hdparm on the / directory?

Cheers
Mark

Are you sure? I see no hard disk attached there :-?

This is my output ("ata1" is where my first sata disk is connected):

sm01@stt008:~$ dmesg | grep -i ata1
[ 1.845459] ata1: SATA max UDMA/133 abar m2048@0xdc627000 port 0xdc627100 irq 1277
[ 2.388162] ata1: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
[ 2.428872] ata1.00: ATA-8: ST3250310NS, SN06, max UDMA/133
^^^^^^^^^^^

[ 2.434697] ata1.00: 488397168 sectors, multi 0: LBA48 NCQ (depth 31/32)
[ 2.475931] ata1.00: configured for UDMA/133

Despite the ata2 port is "up", I wonder why there's no device listed.

So it seems :-?

You should clear the buffer cache first but still, those values seem a
bit conservative for sata 6 hard disk (caviar black) with sata 6
controller.

On boot i receive a message that my Marvel controller on my mobo can
only handle 2.5Gb/s so ASUS has given the incorrect specs for this mobo
selling it as 6Gb/s but dmesg seems to give 6Gb/s, so i don't know
what's what.


It's a ASUS P7H55-M/USB3 mobo.

Uh? I had a dejavů... What happened with ata2? :-)

That makes more sense: hard disk is proplery listed and sata speed
matches with hdd and board specs.

These entries are logged in a later stage so it means that all of
the sata ports are throwing "exception" errors. To list them run:

dmesg | grep -i ata[1-12]

Upload the full dmesg at www.pastebin.com so we can review.

> It's a ASUS P7H55-M/USB3 mobo.

According to the specifications, it should have:

6xSATA 3.0 Gb/s ports (intel chipset)
2xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (marvel chipset)

What I would worry about is for the "exception" error and "failed command".

Googling around I've found this:

http://iwtf.net/2011/05/19/western-digital-sata-errors-under-linux/

You can try what it suggests but instead making the change permanent, you
can first append "libata.force=8.00:noncq" to the kernel line in GRUB's
boot menu) and check if the errors are gone. If yes, congratulations,
you are hitting either a kernel or WD bug ;-)
