Description Rolf Fokkens 2005-02-13 15:26:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
While installing an old CD (Myth II: Soulblighter) the kernel claims:

  Feb 13 14:25:31 home01 kernel: hdd: rw=0, want=1287172, limit=1252752
  Feb 13 14:25:31 home01 kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdd, logical block 321792
  Feb 13 14:25:31 home01 kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device

Which breaks the installation of the game. The kernel appears to assume a CD size of 1252752 blocks, while on the other hand:

  -sh-3.00# cat /proc/ide/hdd/model /proc/ide/hdd/capacity

The same kernel assumes a size of 1302360 blocks.

Years ago (2.4 kernel?) the CD installed w/o any problem, and even nowadays Windows is willing to read the whole CD. I think the CD itself is not the problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the Myth II CD
2. Do a setup
3. Notice these "attempt to access beyond end of device" messages

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
