Hi all,


I've just plugged a SATA-HD to my new Nitrogen6x board and it looks U-Boot detects fine the HD but linux doesn't.


This is an excerpt of the console output from U-Boot:

Linux boots fine, but the only mention to "sata" in dmesg is:

No sata disk.


Everything is just out of the box; I'm just running the SD that comes with the board.

My question is, does this kernel have SATA support enabled?
