Hi. I compile a custom kernel for an old Toshiba 300CDS (ca. 1995 model) with a 2GB IDE drive.
Try as I might, I didn’t manage to get support for the IDE drive. I’m a little lost with the numerous options for drives.
So on boot, of course, neither /home nor /opt are found, or /tce for that matter.
The only hint I have toward making the drive being recognized is that TC4.3 did not recognize it, whereas TC4.4 does. And indeed, in the release notes, there is this phrase: “isa libata enabled for very old laptops”, which I guess is the important part for me.
But I was not able to find a working set of config options to match this release note
Based on a diff from TC’s config from previous to current kernel, my last attempt was to set CONFIG_PATA_LEGACY=y, along with CONFIG_ATA_BMDMA=y, to no avail.
