Description Andrew P. Lentvorski, Jr. 2006-07-01 01:37:46 EDT
Fedora installer refuses to recognize an external firewire drive as an install target. The drive appears in dmesg as recognized (/dev/sda1), but the appropriate entries for /dev/sda are not created in /dev. This failure is present in Fedora Core 5 as well. External USB drives, however, are recognized and configured on /dev/sda when present.

Aside: this same drive is easily recognized as an install target by both Ubuntu Dapper Drake and SuSE 10.1.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-07-03 23:46:08 EDT
This should fixed up post-test1

I just tried to install FC6t3, and it's not fixed. The kernel sees the drive just fine and loads the necessary drivers, but it does not show up in the list of drives to install to. I'm using an Apple Powerbook. If I attach that same drive over USB, then everything works fine.
