Description of problem:
I upgraded from FC1 to FC2 test3. The resulting install included a
GRUB entry which prevented the CD drive from working: I couldn't play
audio CDs (GNOME CD player said "Drive error"), mount /mnt/cdrom
returned "/dev/cdrom is not a valid block device").
The complete GRUB entry for the install was:
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.327)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.327 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
Removing the "hdc=ide-scsi" entry fixed the problem, I can now play
audio CDs and read and write CDs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Hmmm. Adding/removing the entry is 100% reproduceable. As for
upgrading from FC1 to FC2t3, well I've only done that once.
Actual Results: CD drive operations did not work after upgrade.
Expected Results: CD drive should have worked.
I experienced the same result with ugrading from FC1 to FC2T3. I don't
think that the upgrade should tinker too much with the parameters
given to the kernel, bt removing something that is a known change from
the 2.4 kernel to a 2.6 kernel might be a rational choice for smoother
