Description of problem:
This hasn't really worked since 2.6.
Connect to an Initio 9100, I have a SCSI burner and a SCSI scanner.
modprobe initio freezes the system after recognizing the scanner.
There are no log entries. If I unplug the scanner, then the system
freezes after recognizing the burner.
This works correctly in WinXP and worked correctly with RH9.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe initio
Actual Results: System freeze (lock up). The only way to reboot is to
pull the power plug as the power button is also frozen.
Expected Results: Activate sg and initio modules.
