Description of problem:
Last night I installed the 4 cd-roms of fc3 (everything), connected to the internet and updated evrything available (just leaving i18 packages other than German).
Now I cannot mount any cdrom, wether by automount nor by manual mount. My CDROM is an LTN525 on /dev/hdb.
The machine hangs, no mouse move possible, no ctl,alt,f1 to get a console, just left switching out the machine and hoping that nothing is damaged.
There is no error message or any thing that could help us.
But don't worry, it is just an experimetal installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/hdb /media/cdrom
anything in dmesg ?
does it get any better if you disable dma on that drive ? (hdparm -d0 /dev/hdb)
mounting after disabling dma works fine
