Description Bob T. 2004-07-17 11:17:26 UTC
Description of problem: I have an ECS Desknote box with an integrated
CD/DVD drive.  With 2.4 kernels, I used ide-scsi to play DVDs but this
isn't possible with the stock Fedora 2 2.6 kernels. If I build a
custom kernel with ide-scsi module support, I can play DVDs; but I
don't think I should have to do this with relatively standard and
ancient hardware.  Is there anything that can be done?

Fedora Core 2 freezes/crashes when I attempt to read a DVD with my Matshita SR-8177 
DVD-ROM drive. I am using an IBM R40 laptop. Please fix this!

any better with the latest update kernels ? How about if you disable dma on that
drive with hdparm -d0 ?

Turned out to be a configuration problem (/dev/dvd symlink not removed by
updating from FC1 to FC2).
