Description Brian Hanks 2006-05-08 13:04:43 UTC
Description of problem: After installing FC5, I am unable to mount a secondary IDE EXT3 hard drive partition (/dev/hde1). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): >= 2.6.15-1.2054 Currently using 2.6.16-1.2111 How reproducible: I've reproduced on two machines. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have a secondary IDE drive in the machine with backups of previous data files from FC4, in this case hanging off of a HPT302 IDE controller card as /dev/hde. 2. Install FC5 on two SATA drives (sda & sdb) utilizing RAID1 and LVM for everything except /boot (std EXT3), / (std RAID1), and /var (std RAID1). 3. After install attempt mounting. Actual results: Will not mount unless utilizing a work around. Expected results: Should mount without problem as has previously by issuing a std mount command (mount -t ext3 /dev/hde1 /mnt/bckup_40). Additional info: 1. Work around is to issue the "partprobe /dev/hde" command. Then, mount through a loop device. 2. This partition mounts in FC4 and Knoppix on the same machine. 3. The /sys/block/hde/hde1 entry is missing. 4. Attempting to mount the /dev/hde1 partition results in mount returning ENXIO - "Not a valid block device". 5. Running partprobe will create the /sys/block/hde/hde1 entry, but mounting still fails with mount returning EBUSY.

Following the upgrade to 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5, this is fixed. I'm not sure what changed, but it's working.
