Subject: Why SCSI module needed for PCI-IDE ATA only disks ?
Date: Mon, 04 Dec 2006 22:27:14 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I am asking why need to compile the following modules while I do not
have any SCSI device ?

ata_piix needs scsi_mod

When making menuconfig, the need to select SCSI submenu options seems
rather surprising to me for an IDE ATA disk only system.
