Description of problem:
I was previously running kernel-2.4.22-1.2179.nptl and just upgraded
via YUM.  I access my CDROM drives (1 burner, 1 DVD reader) via the
ide-scsci interface.  While this worked on 2179, the devices were not
available on 2197.

Here id a DIFF from the DMESG output from the boot:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with new kernel
2. cannot access sr0 (and other ide-scsi devices)
3. boot with old kernel
4. All is fine...

Comment 1 Russell McOrmond 2004-08-31 18:33:48 UTC
Just a quick note that if I remove 'ide-cd' before doing the insmod
icd-scsi then all works with the new kernel as expected.  I don't know
if this will help with figuring out what the best thing to do in the
general case is, but it helps my immediate problem so that I can now
run the recent FC1 kernels.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
