hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : AmigaOS4 gets another storage driver
   posted by sg2 on 1-Jun-2006 17:58:40 (6697 reads)
Thanks to Max Tretene providing the hardware, AmigaOS4 got a new storage driver, for the ubiquitous IT8212 PATA IDE controller from ITE Tech.


New driver in action

This chip supports RAID in an easy to implement fashion, so there is a chance that a future version of the driver will take advantage of this feature.

For registered beta testers, this driver will be in the next day's beta files. For OS4 users, it will be distributed along with an update of the other storage drivers after a betatesting phase.

For the record, with this driver, AmigaOS4 is now equiped with storage drivers for:

- AmigaOne onboard VIA PATA IDE
- Silicon Image SiI0680 PATA IDE
- ITE Tech IT8212 PATA IDE
- Silicon Image SiI3112 and 3512 dual channel SATA
- Silicon Image SiI3114 quad channel SATA
- SYM/LSI lsi53c8xx SCSI
- USB mass storage devices

More in the works.

Regards,
--
Stéphane Guillard

Every day I'm happy to see that OS4 is the most up-to-date AmigaOS I ever had.
Thanks to all involved.

Great work Stéphane...as always

although...may i ask a question?

Silicon Image Sil0680 PATA IDE???

I thought the Sil0680 is a serial-only?
same question for the onboard IDE?

I have the 0680 in my system installed, though, any information appreciated

Open your A1 and you'll see the SiL0680 is PATA.... Or there are 2 boards with this name around.

@Raziel and elwood

PATA stands for Parallel ATA while SATA stands for Serial... so... well... it speaks for itself...

Great work! Any new driver is good news.
Also thanks to Max for supporting Amiga!

I'm sure you don't want to know more about JXFS because you prefer surprises, don't you ?

And personally, I don't see it as a successor but a brand new FS.

Not sure I'm allowed too. Maybe Joerg (the coder) will step in and fill the blanks.

Ah, but I prefer to be in on the secret. More details please. I won't tell anyone, I promise.

Aha, well XFS (wikipedia) is a name I do know. This sounds great for those hoping for reeeally large files. If only I had exabytes of disk space...

It has nothing to do with XFS, SFS2 or any other exsisting file system.
