转发: 答复: How to set irq_tables.c if apci-to-pci bridge needed

When I boot Red Hat 7.2 with the normal BIOS of the Elite P6VEM3 mother board, the BIOS will set the irqs into the multimedia card
and the card can work. I think the BIOS has no knowledge about the PCI-PCI bridge specs.
When I boot from linuxbios, if I don't set the irq_tables.c , nobody will set the irqs into the multimedia card. I will get the message:
No IRQ Known for interrupt pin A of device 02:04.0. Please try using pci=biosirq
So I added that two lines into irq_tables.c blindly. And it works on Elite K7SEM. Now I want to use Elite P6VEM3, this time it
does not work. The chipset of K7SEM is SiS730 and one of P6VEM3 is SiS630E. Is there some diffrent between the two southbridge
Will working on the irq_tables.c solve the problem or I am on the wrong way ? Can you tell me what shall I do?
Thanks for your help.

The way a PCI-PCI bridge should route the IRQs behind is defined in the
PCI-PCI bridge spec. For you case, it IRQs are re-routed twice, one is
by the bridge, the other is the southbridge IRQ router.
