Home > Zeta > SATA Coming to Zeta SATA Coming to Zeta Submitted by Anonymous 2005-09-16 Zeta 10 Comments According to Cola-Coder, a yellowTAB employee, the first stable SATA driver for ZETA has been implemented. Currently, the driver supports VIA VT6420/6421 chipsets, which will most likely be followed with support for nVidia (nForce) chipsets. About The Author 10 Comments 2005-09-16 9:54 am Tomasz Dominikowski “which will most likely BE followed” It’s nice to see some progress on ZETA. Hardware support is crucial. 2005-09-16 10:42 am Anonymous “feedback from VIA how to get the RAID functionality to work” These controllers need a software RAID implementation. You can crib the VIA disk layout instructions from either the Linux or Windows “fakeRAID” implementations, then feed those into the layout parameters of your software RAID code, maybe ten minutes work plus testing. That is if you already /have/ software RAID in the operating system. 2005-09-16 4:10 pm Anonymous Anonymity is detrimental to building trust. In closed source products especially. 2005-09-16 5:16 pm macsnafu True, but YellowTab *could* contribute the SATA driver to the Haiku project… 2005-09-16 6:33 pm Anonymous I think that Cola-Coder – it is the regular developer of yT – Ithamar Adema… (As far as I know he developed this IDE-stack and SATA support for this…) 2005-09-17 10:58 am jonas.kirilla It seems my original “Cola-Coder” comment has been modded down. (How unexpected!…) While slightly off-topic, this -is- relevant today, as everyone expects you to trust their software, and a few bad ones abuse that trust. I find it hard to believe that so many people choose to trust the faceless, nameless, lone gun men among us. If neither a commercial entity nor a clearly identifiable open-source project or single developer takes responsibility for a piece of software (closed or open) there can be no trust, and with todays operating systems, no use of that software. If Cola-Coder is indeed Ithamar, I’m happy for you guys. I met him at a BeGeistert some years back and he seemed like an OK person. 2005-09-16 8:02 pm GCrain I really wish that they would complete the firewire mass storage stack. My firewire external drive is great for transfering data between my Mac and PC. To bad I can’t use it for Zeta/BeOS. 2005-09-16 9:04 pm Anonymous Always good to hear about beos drivers! Isn’t firewire one of the standards that beos had from long ago? 2005-09-17 4:15 am hraq I love Zeta, It felt like Unix to me. Good job and I wish they release more and better drivers in sound and video arena. 2005-09-17 1:37 pm Anonymous I’m pretty sure Zeta have based all their work of Thomas Kurschel’s IDE Driver.
