the driver for my Via 8237a sata/ide controller seems to have huge
problems with my ide dvd drive: often during reading
-but also just after the plain insertion od a dvd- I see messages like
the following in the log:
Dec 30 13:12:05 xp kernel: ata4.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr
0x0 action 0x2 frozen
Dec 30 13:12:05 xp kernel: ata4.00: cmd

Dec 30 13:12:06 xp kernel: ata4.01: configured for UDMA/25
Dec 30 13:12:06 xp kernel: ata4: EH complete
and obviously the dvd drive becomes unaccessible.
The 2 Sata disks work perfectly (so far).
The drive is not broken, as Solaris on the same pc has been working
perfectly for a long time.
Does anyone know how I can solve my problems?
