Description of problem:
The problem occur on ASUS A7M266-D dual athlon-MP computer.
Fedora Core 2 + all updates  (2004-08-10).
When first started, xcdroast scans for devices. It results in computer
hang up requireing a power cycle to reboot. It hangs apparently at the 
very end of the scan -- all relevant devices do show up in the xcdroast 
window, but the line "The scan finished completely" never does.
I attach the last few lines of "strace xcdrost" leading to the crash.
The "cdrecord -scanbus -dev=ATAPI" finishes and detects all devices
correctly. k3b hangs computer in the same manner, but I have not
investigated it as much as xcdroast.
No error messages in /var/log/messages.
Xcdroast works fine on a very similar Tyan Tiger MP S2460 system
(it has only one CDROM though).
Everything worked as expected with RedHat 9 installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start xcdroast (as root)

Actual Results:  xcdroast starts, the "Scanning the bus" windows
pops-up, it finds all
3 ATAPI CD-ROMs (CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD), then freezes -- no keyboard
response, no ping response.

Expected Results:  scan finishes correctly.

hmm, freezing means, the kernel failed...
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-08-16 06:35:44 EDT
this is a xcdroad problem, it calls --scanbus AND uses a non-prefered
"know what you're doing" backdoor into the IDE subsystem. It shouldn't
do that.
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:25:32 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 11:37:56 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

first requested. As a result we are closing it.
