Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 100545
Installation hangs when booting from a firewire cdrom.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
Description of problem:
Installing Linux off a 1394 (firewire) CD-ROM fails after loading sbp2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Dell X200 + firewire CDROM
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the first CD of Severn
2. Use the default install path
3. The setup hangs with "loading sbp2 module..."
Hangs and the installation cannot continue.
Installation would go on.
Might be a sbp2 reentrant issue as discussed on linux kernel mailing list..
Isn't this the "must now rescan scsi bus after loading sbp2" issue?
In which case, anaconda would have to have that added.
No. The module "crashes" (see 101901).
Same problem here, with a Maxtor 5000DV external hard disk enclosure. I'm
actually using a slightly newer kernel than the one that shipped with Severn.
FWIW, it works just fine with Shrike.
FWIW, the kernel I'm using is kernel-2.4.22-20.1.2024.2.36.nptl (now available
from RHN, and soon from Rawhide). The module hang I observe is described in bug
Still happens on Fedora core. Redhat 9 works.
