Description of problem:
After booting a Dell PE2650 into RHEL4 beta 2, dmesg has the
"ide1: Wait for ready failed before probe "
System : PE2650
BIOS : A20
H/W config : 2* 2.4 Ghz /12GB
Comments (from Amit Bhutani):
Looks like this got introduced in the 2.6.9 kernel.
This is what the IDE maintainer (Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz) had to
say about it -->
Looks like someone needs to write a patch as Bartlomiej indicated to
replace the printks with pr_debugs and submit the patch to
kernel.org. This may already be done. Just need to verify. Absolutely
need to open a Bugzilla against Red Hat to ensure that patch gets
included in RHEL 4 RC.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up system
2. look at dmesg
Actual Results: error message above is in log
Expected Results: no errors in log
These are debug level messages not errors. They were switched to pr_debug in
2.6.10rc once we were happy with testing the changes.
I just found that out when I tried to reproduce this myself.
Verified fixed in 860 build. Thanks. Closing.
