|Kernel patch for sandisk with Linux kernel 2.4.x (modified 0 times) ||Doogman|
|Tired of not being able to use the sandisk with your shiny new 2.4.x kernel? Well, good news, I found a patch on the kernel mailing list to fix this very annoying bug. Now you don't have to disable hdb to boot the i-o and you can use the sandisk just like you could in the 2.2.x series.|
The kernel patch is old, originally for 2.4.0pre11, but it's only two lines and has been working well for me with 2.4.6. I was going to post the patch here, but the BBS did a great job of mangling the code, so I made a tarball available for d/l here:
You get a html version of the original mailing list message and already patched ide-probe.c for your kernel source code. Enjoy!
