    Now if only I could get my Seagate serial ATA hard drive attached to my Promise PDC20376 to be recognized I would be set. Unfortunately, even after weeks of trying it isn't working. It works with FreeBSD 5.2.1 and Linux kernel 2.6 so I'm not complaining :)

    Youíre complaining, arenít you?
    Roll your sleeves up and help your self...

      quoting Argol: "Youíre complaining, arenít you? Roll your sleeves up and help your self..." Hmm, I've tried.. probably harder than most to "help myself" I've google'd, checked the mailing lists/FAQs/etc, and on IRC. I've tried the latest snapshots, I've tried enabling and disabling the onboard SATA bios RAID functions (having it as a RAID-0 performance or no RAID configured) and the closest I can come is having hd1+* appear at the boot prompt when it is configured as a RAID-0, just to have it not appear in the dmesg anyways. I am not a C programmer nor do I wish to be so that isn't a good option. And I'm not complaining, it doesn't work no big deal, I can still use FreeBSD, Linux or Windows, I would just rather use OpenBSD. BTW: a dmesg from the system can be found at and the drive is a Seagate SATA 120GB model: ST3120026AS a "true" serial ATA device which is what I suspect is the problem since it appears that OpenBSD only supports serial ata with the parallel ata conversion (I could be wrong about this part). Let me know if you know of any further "helping myself" I can do.

        Come on. If you don't have something nice to say, yadda yadda yadda. If the guy's got this working using FreeBSD and Linux, he's not a newbie wanting someone to hold his hand.

    Is it weird that the thing I'm looking forward to the most is the release art and song?

      no, but is it weird the feature i'm looking forward most to is mount_mfs -P ?
