I found this driver here

http://www.adaptec.com/AdaptecCom/Templates/driverdetail.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID={9869CA40-7934-4C61-9586-59326B50F7CF}&NRORIGINALURL=%2fen-US%2fspeed%2fsas%2flinux%2fadp94xx-1_0_8-6_src_tgz.htm&NRCACHEHINT=Guest

Maybe OK?

Hi !

Ubuntu 9.04 found SAS HDD drives but not found in Ppup-417 (pup4-417-k2.6.30.1.iso ).

Thanks,

Hacao,
What does "SAS" mean?

Oh, I just looked at the link you posted ...but I still don't know what "serial attached SCSI" means.

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS). The SAS is a new generation serial communication protocol for devices designed to allow for much higher speed data transfers and is compatible with SATA. SAS uses a mechanically identical data and power connector to standard 3.5" SATA1/SATA2 HDDs, and many server-oriented SAS RAID controllers are also capable of addressing SATA hard drives. SAS uses serial communication instead of the parallel method found in traditional SCSI devices but still uses SCSI commands.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_Attached_SCSI

Copy files in SAS HDD (35M/s) > SATA HDD (25M/s).

Thanks,

Um, it does work, doesn't need fixing.


Doesn't work on this system. It may be related to hardware and does need fixing.

PostPosted: Fri 24 Jul 2009, 17:49    Post subject: More regarding Linuxant support
Subject description: HDA codec patch available
 

Barry,
While working on the Linuxant support, I noticed that Linuxant has patches for the ALSA driver, that appear to add a codec to the module snd-hda-intel.ko, which is in Puppy. I suspect the codec applies to the Conexant HDA modems supported by the ALSA driver.

As the current version of the driver is at 1.0.16, I have attached the patch for that version. However, the driver is now at 1.0.20, and appears to change the snd-hda-intel module so as to move the codecs into separate modules, reducing the snd-hda-intel module from 437K to 40K; I assume only the codec in use (5K-83K) would be loaded with it. That should reduce snd-hda-intel's RAM utilization, when loaded, by at least 314K! In case the latest version of the ALSA driver is chosen for a new Puppy release, I have also included the patch specific to it.

Just something to consider when the time is right.

It's a great upgrade. Using an ASUS EEE 900, everything's working fine except the installation of irda-utils-0.9.18+smcinit-0.4-1.pup

http://dotpups.de/dotpups/System_Utilities/

Even after installing both dotpup handler 0.4 and 0.5 (the latter from puppy manager in 4.17), upon clicking the pup, I get the same error that I don't have enough memory for install.

I have successfully installed this pup in 4.12. Can anyone else repeat this error?

Jake

I have just posted this to my blog:

"Just a thought... maybe it's only me... but, using 417, which has 24-bit pixel height for the second-level menu as well as the top, I don't seem to like it as much as how it was before...

It may just be the habit of seeing it a certain way for so long. Please give feedback what you think."

Five minutes after posting, already two responses!

When un-mounting drives, icons show them mounted still, with those green points.

Subject description: happened to me as well ..
 

.. but possibly in my case had to do with clickmounting/unmounting a renamed 417 sfs (on a thumbdrive) - it was remarkably persistent in "failing" to unmount (opticals, hdds and the other thumb oki) .. finally a reboot set it right Neutral

clarify - clickmount/unmount of sfs oki (green/orange mssgs and also no 'remnant' in /mnt like seems to happen if sfs-clickmounting goes awry), it was the driveicon on desk and also the greenballed folder in /mnt dir for that thumbdrive that kept "failing" when attempting a rightclick unmount.

. . . further investigation . . .
pP417std (out of uP476, upgrade)
pP417std (out of P421barebones, upgrade)
pP417std (puppy pfix=ram option)
(*std suffix denotes kernel 2.6.30.1)

The (almost total by usual means) umount "failure" seems definitely related to clickmount/unmount (sfs or 2fs files) ..

umount: can't umount /mnt/sde1: Device or resource busy

.. with other normal dirs/files (on my thumbdrive sde1) it's oki - pitb to have to reboot to unmount...
