Overview

Device Works? Note
SATA and PATA Yes Marvell 88SE6111 works with the 88SE61121 driver to provide PATA support. Speed if device seems low though.
SAS Untested No access to SAS drives to confirm SAS operation. Test to be done with SATA drives to be completed.
ESATA Unknown
Network Yes Both NIC fully working with sky2.
Sound Yes No issues.
USB Yes
Firewire Unknown Lack of access to test Firewire.
Hardware Yes Tested and working. All values from ACPI are reported. Voltages, fan speeds, CPU and motherboard sensors

Installation

Boot CD

Minimal CD boots fine with no problems.

NIC

The sky2 module provides both NIC use with only the minimal CD.

Intel ICH10R Southbrige RAID

PATA

Works using the pata_marvell although performance isn't great.

Kernel configuration
