For the last week or so, I've been trying to compile the 2.6.10 version of the kernel on my Asus S5 laptop.
So far I've got a farely good working kernel
However, when I boot, I get a Warning saying that HardDrive DMA ir off and that it will slow down fsck. My question:
Should I turn DMA on, in the BIOS? Will that fix this warning?
(more doubts to follow)
There's an option somewhere in the kernel config called "Use DMA by default on disks" or something of the sort, you might want to enable that.
I had this problem, simple to fix.
1. Make sure it's turned on in the BIOS of course
2. Make sure it's enabled by default (like the above post said)
3. Make sure you compiled support for your chipset in directly, NOT as a module.
