Description Dan Kelley 2004-02-25 20:35:54 EST
Description of problem:

I cannot use the cdrom, and I'm not entirely sure why.  I'll describe
the symptoms and what I've tried.

First off, it does not automount.

Secondly, I cannot do "mount" e.g. 

$ mount /mnt/cdrom
ount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device

with setup

$ grep cdrom /etc/fstab
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660
noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

Thirdly, I see the following output from dmesg:

request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- ide-cd. error = 256

In case it's relevant, here is info on the kernel:
[root@kelley-home kelley]# grep kernel /boot/grub/menu.lst
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.1-1.65 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi

(end of problem-description content)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I don't know, really, what component is problematic.  I'm running
Fedora Core 2 test 1.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up
2. try above-named steps
Actual results:

Cannot use cdrom

Expected results:

Can use cdrom

Additional info:

I looked around for other advice on this, but couldn't find any, so I
thought it would be Ok to report it here, even though I wasn't sure
under which component to file the bug (the "cdr" as the component was
just the closest I could find, since the system demands a guess).

I do not think that the ide-scsi entry is needed anymore since scsi
emulation has been depracated with the 2.6.x kernels. I solved this
problem by simply eliminating the hdc=ide-scsi entry in grub.conf. I
think that the problem with this is that whatever program is writing
to the grub.conf file when installing a new kernel, allows the new
kernel to inherit the previous kernel's switches. However, in this
case the switch is no longer useful and causes problems.

Remove the hdc=ide-scsi, yes.
