Description Chris Ricker 1999-04-11 13:13:41 UTC
<I'm re-entering this here, since stuff posted on the mailing list doesn't seem to wind up here> If you have two CD players in the same machine, the installer looks in the first one found by the kernel for media, and then quits. It should instead look in all of the kernel-reported CD players sequentially (and if it does this, have the user confirm that that's the desired device) or else just ask the user immediately which CD player to use if multiple devices are reported. later, chris

for later, obviously. :)

Will be fixed later.

*** Bug 3492 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** The installer appears to be only capable of installing from /dev/hdc. My /dev/hdc is a first generation dvdrom; it doesn't read cds. My /dev/hdd is a cdrom, and reads much faster to boot. Historically, on my system, to install redhat linux I've had to unplug my dvdrom to install, which is really a pain. Users should get a choice of what device to use, or at least be able to specify some option to the installer. ------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 06/16/99 14:40 ------- This issue has been forwarded to the install developer for further consideration.

This is fixed in the latest installer in Raw Hide. It tries all CD-ROMs.
