I've found a fix (or work-around) for this issue. I found this kernel
parameter "all_generic_ide" mentioned as a possible fix for a problem
with Seagate drives. I tried using it with my default, un-modified Gutsy
kernel but it didn't solve the problem. I tried it with the custom Gutsy
kernel I built with the pata_via module enabled and that worked. I don't
know why, but the combination of the pata_via module and
"all_generic_ide" allows my system to boot and run the Gutsy kernel. Now
I'll be ready to upgrade to Hardy after it's had a week or to to stabilize.
On another note, Brian Murray (ubuntu developer?) has marked my bug
(212042) as won't fix because it "doesn't meet the criteria for a stable
release update". What does this mean?
P.S. Where is your petition to keep the old IDE drivesr?
