System Builder's Daily

I was hoping that a kernel update would enable my spare SATA ports - to which I had attached the Blu-Ray drive and the SSD - but no such luck.  The chip is a Marvell 88SE9172, and it looks like I need the 3.4 kernel for support - and I'm using CentOS 6.3, which runs the 2.6 kernel.

So no dice.

So I went upstairs, dug out my stash of Adaptec 1430SA controllers [snip about two hours of cursing] tied off the loose cables properly this time, swapped out the video card, plugged everything back in, and now I'm reinstalling Linux again.

But now my Blu-Ray drive and SSD work.
