Praim Compact Dual Core Series: Linux 


 


 

 



 

Linux

I've run Tiny Core 9.0 from a USB pendrive without any problems.

As noted on the hardware page the onboard SATA SSD is being treated as an IDE drive and being flagged as running at UDMA/33

....
ata1.00: ATA-8: KingSpec KSM-HS.5-002SJ, 120202, max UDMA/133
ata1.00: 3928176 sectors, multi 16: LBA48 NCQ (depth 0/32)
ata1.00: limited to UDMA/33 due to 40-wire cable
ata1.00: configured for UDMA/33
....

I have no idea of what's involved in the SATA interface being presented as an IDE interface and whether this UDMA setting has any actual effect, but a simple way around the problem (if it is a problem) is to include the boot parameter libata.force=short40c. With this in place we now have:

....
ata1: FORCE: cable set to short40c
ata1.00: ATA-8: KingSpec KSM-HS.5-002SJ, 120202, max UDMA/133
ata1.00: 3928176 sectors, multi 16: LBA48 NCQ (depth 0/32)
ata1.00: configured for UDMA/133
....
