Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-08-13 05:07:52 UTC
1. Everything works on pinstripe/beta5 and DOES NOT work on

2. I have a Memorex CRW-1622 cd recorder on /dev/hdh.

3. I specify append="hdh=ide-scsi nousb" in /etc/lilo.conf.

4. I get the following:

[gene@chaos gene]$ su -p       
[root@chaos gene]# insmod ide-scsi
Using /lib/modules/2.2.16-21smp/scsi/ide-scsi.o
[2]+  Done                    /usr/sbin/rhns_register -q
[root@chaos gene]# cdrecord -scanbus

Comment 1 Crutcher Dunnavant 2000-08-14 13:41:49 UTC
could you run this again for me, with the following command

strace -otracefile cdrecord -scanbus

and append the tracefile to this bug report?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-08-14 16:09:27 UTC
sounds like a kernel problem to me, but we need more information.

we need to see the outputp of 'lsmod' on both installs, and a 'lspci -v'.

Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2000-08-14 20:54:53 UTC
File is being attached from strace -otracefile cdrecord -scanbus

Funny.  I tested cdrecord on two other "systems" (one a vmware virtual and the
other a Dell OptiPlex) -- everything was fine on them.  Just my "home" system
that is having problems.

OK, I have no idea what is going on but as of today it is working.  The only
change made was a screwed up append= in /etc/lilo.conf which had nousb as NOUSB
and I was getting error messages during bootup.  Here is the "current" append=

	append="hdh=ide-scsi nousb"

Anyway, I am closing this.
