Description Joe Smith 2004-05-04 01:14:15 EDT

Description of problem:
After upgrading from fc1 to fc2_t3, one of my two cd drives was no
longer functional.  Once I removed the 'hdc=ide-scsi' option from the
the grub boot configuration, both drives work fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade FC1 to FC2 (*)
2. Try to use cd drive
3. Device not accessible

(*) May require two-drive system, or just a CD-writer that was
configured with 'hdx=ide-scsi' under FC1.

Actual Results:  CD device not accessible (not a valid block device).

Expected Results:  CD should work.

Additional info:

After upgrading from fc1 to fc2_t3, one of my two cd drives was no
longer functional: wouldn't play audio CDs; wouldn't mount data CDs. 
The other CD drive was functional; the non-functional drive was used
for the upgrade, so I know it works ;-)

At the next boot, I checked the grub boot configuration and noticed
that the previous kernel options had been copied to the new config,
including the 'hdc=ide-scsi' needed for my CD writer under fc1.  Once
I removed that option, both drives work fine.

I'm not sure what information is needed to 'fix' this; please let me
know if more specific info is required.
