    DMA disabled on HDD?


    Hey guys! I'm new to linux and I just installed slackware 10.2. I still have alot to set up but first I want to get a big problem out of the way. When I boot into slackware it tells me that dma is disabled on my hdd. I checked my bios to see if there might be a setting related to it but I don't see anything even relatively close. I'm using a toshiba Satellite m70. All the specs are here should you need to see them.

    Thanks alot for any help you might provide

    Maybe this can help you...

    READ MANUAL FIRST!

    man hdpram

    Then, Try this command (this was for my HDD)

    hdparm -d1 -X udma2 -u1 -k1 -c1 /dev/hda

    Tell me if it worked.
