Description kronnos 1999-10-10 14:46:36 UTC
Seems like the kudzu service program get confused when it
try to detect, ATAPI Equipment, runing SCSI Emulation

I have a CD-ROM Memorex CD-322E and a CRW-1622 runing in my

Everything where detected until, the CRW-1622 where
connected as a SCSI device... (with the append =
"hdd=ide-scsi" option inside the lilo.)

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-11 14:31:59 UTC
Does it segfault, or does it do something else strange?

------- Additional Comments From   10/11/99 23:11 -------
Yes... it does Segfault.  and a core dump.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-12 03:30:59 UTC
OK, can you get a backtrace out of the core dump, or
is the stack smashed?

Comment 3 kronnos 1999-10-12 19:04:59 UTC
How do I do a backtrace?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-12 21:29:59 UTC

gdb /usr/sbin/kudzu <core file>

and then type


at the gdb prompt.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-02 02:41:59 UTC
Closed, lack of input. If you happen to be using a custom kernel that
does not have IEEE 1284 parallel port autoprobe information enabled,
the kudzu that shipped with 6.1 *will* segfault. This has been fixed
in the current kudzu in Raw Hide.
