Module pata_it821x

Hi users,
I have a big problem with openSuSE 11.3.
I have three hard disks: 1 SATA and 2 PATA connected to it821 controller. With previous openSuSE releases (11.0, 11.1 and 11.2) I could install openSuSE on my PATA disk using this option at grub prompt: “brokenmodules=pata_it821x”.
Now this option disables it821 controller and openSuSE 11.3 only identifies SATA hard disk with Windows XP. If I don’t use this option, the system identifies my it821 controller with 2 PATA hard disks, but the installation process fails. My PATA hard disk is correctly partitioned, but after a few minutes GNOME installation aborts.
What can I do to install openSUSE 11.3 on my PATA hard disk?
I’ve tried to upgrade to 11.3 from a clean openSuSE 11.2 installation, but after reboot grub doesn’t detect and mount PATA partitions.
Thanks for your help! :frowning:

I’ve read that from 2.6.33-1 kernel pata_it821x has replaced it821x, so it’s impossible to install openSuSE 11.3.

During my investigation, I’ve found that it821x module is marked as unsupported module in openSUSE 11.3 kernel sources (see supported.conf in kernel-source-2.6.34-12.3.src.rpm). How can I enable this module to create a specific kernel version for my system?
Am I only one with this controller?
