Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121681
FC2-test2 has no driver for CDROM installation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Description of problem:
Installation from cdrom (HP CD-writer+) fails to find an acceptable
driver. I've tried specifying a few drivers, but the list is long and
none of them are familiar so it seems a waste of time trying them all.
Plus, I looked on the web and I see that others have also had similar
problems (I think, with both CDROM and hard-disk), so I thought it
best to report this as a bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert FC2-test2-disc1.iso cdrom
Fails to find a CDROM driver
Finds CDROM driver and proceeds beyond this first baby step
I didn't see this problem with FC2-test1, nor with any of the redhat
versions from 4 to 9 that I've put on this box, nor with Sun Java
Desktop (a repackaged SUSE). It's an old box, so I'd be pretty
surprised if there _is_ no driver; perhaps somebody forgot to put it
in the list because it's old?
PS. I have _NO_ idea what component to mark this against, but this
system required me to post it against something, so I hope my guess
isn't too wasteful of folks' time.
FC2T3 works fine, however. I'd propose deleting this bug but I don't imagine I am
permitted to do so.
