Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: linux-image
Passing in the "ide=nodma" boot parameter appears to have no effect in
Confirmed under Sparc and X86.
See this thread:
For me, at least, this is an installation show stopper.
I am trying to do an install with a Compact Flash -> IDE adapter. The
CF card doesn't support DMA, and while the kernel eventually disables
DMA for the card on its own, it is causing a timeout in the boot, which
makes the system drop to the initramfs busybox prompt.
** Affects: linux-meta (Ubuntu)
