I'm trying to use a PCI SATA controller on a RS/6000 B50 but without success, this is the kernel and the machine:

Code:
Linux RS6000 2.6.23-gentoo-r8 #1 Sat Mar 1 13:00:08 CET 2008 ppc 604r CHRP IBM,7046-B50 GNU/Linux


The controller is found through lspci, this is the output of lspci -vvv:

Code:

00:12.0 RAID bus controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6421 IDE RAID Controller (rev 50)
        Subsystem: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6421 IDE RAID Controller
        Control: I/O+ Mem- BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping+ SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-

I attached to the controller a Maxtor SATA HD, I know for sure that both the controller and the HD and the cable are OK, I have tested them in a x86 PC with gentoo and everything worked fine.
The problem is that on the RS/6000 the HD is not recognized by the controller, the device does not come up, and in the dmesg i found:

Code:

[   26.758826] sata_via 0000:00:12.0: version 2.3
[   26.758894] PCI: Enabling device 0000:00:12.0 (0080 -> 0081)

[   26.868056] scsi1 : sata_via

[   26.871107] scsi3 : sata_via
[   26.871305] ata1: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0xfdffa000 ctl 0xfdffa00a bmdma 0xfdffb400 irq 19
[   26.871327] ata2: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0xfdffa400 ctl 0xfdffa40a bmdma 0xfdffb408 irq 19
[   26.871346] ata3: PATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0xfdffa800 ctl 0xfdffa80a bmdma 0xfdffb410 irq 19
[   27.180170] ata1: SATA link down (SStatus FFFFFFFF SControl FFFFFFFF)
[   27.495789] ata2: SATA link down (SStatus FFFFFFFF SControl FFFFFFFF)


It looks like if nothing were attached to the controller, but the HD is connected and on power.

Any hint?
Thanks!
