Bug Description

Binary package hint: casper

On Dove A0 and on AVD1, the board fails to boot if there is a SATA hard drive attached to the board, complaining that there is no 'init='. This appears to be a problem with is_nice_device() which isn't properly identifying the board if SATA is plugged in.

this seems to rather be a problem with the driver for the sata controller not using a standard kernel interface to expose devices.

This bug was fixed in the package casper - 1.240

    - Added platform-sata_mv to is_nice_device() to allow Marvell
      Dove A0 and AVD1 to properly boot live media (LP: #618489)

This bug is not reproducible anymore in linux-mvl-dove, and after a bit of testing on IRC with Tobin and Oliver we concluded it has already been fixed. Closing it.
