Debugging Central

This page is part of the debugging series — pages with debugging details for a variety of Ubuntu packages.

Introduction

This page describes how to debug issue with IDE harddrives, CDROM and DVD drives.

Chances are that if you have newer hardware and are running a newer distribution, you are using the ata_piix module.

Debugging procedure

Temporary

  • On power on, press 'Escape' to get the Grub boot menu
  • Add the following kernel command line parameters at the end

{{{break=top, modprobe ide_generic all_generic_ide=1 }}}

  • To do this press e to edit then go down to kernel and press e again. When done adding press ESC to go back and then b to boot with this option.

Permanent

To make this persistent you can edit the grub config file as root such as gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
