Description of problem:
cdrom drives disappeared after installing new harddrive (Enable SATA controller in BIOS and creating filesystems), along with /dev/hdc, /dev/hdd, /dev/cdrom, /dev/cdrom1, /mnt/cdrom etc.

Here's the new /etc/fstab
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/md0                /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/md2                /home                   ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/mnt/backup       /mnt/backup             ext3    defaults,noauto 1 2
LABEL=/opt              /opt                    ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/md1                /usr                    ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/sdb1               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/sda1               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

(the new harddisk /dev/sdc1-4 has not been added but works perfectly mounting it manually)

Here's /etc/fstab before the problem (working OK):
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/md0                /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/md2                /home                   ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/mnt/backup       /mnt/backup             ext3    defaults,noauto 1 2
LABEL=/opt              /opt                    ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/md1                /usr                    ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/sdb1               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/sda1               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hdd                /media/cdrom            auto    pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdc                /media/cdrecorder1      auto    pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0                /media/floppy           auto    pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

I tried overwriting /etc/sysconfig/hwconf with the original one as well but with no effect.
Tried running kudzu again - no luck

I'm not what to give you for additional information, nor if kudzu is the problem -  please let me know. 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kudzu-1.1.95-1

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Harddisk
2.enable SATA controller
3.boot (new hardware found and configured OK)
  

Actual Results:  No removable drives available, 


Expected Results:  My removable drives should not be affected 

Additional info:

Q: To reproduce, how can I set the system back to what it was initially? (I have backed up old /etc)

I've seen it before on RH9 - though by installing other HW

Please include the info requested on this page

 http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software_2fHalTraces

Also include the output of 'tree /sys' (you may need to install the 'tree'
package for the 'tree' command).
Comment 2 Stig Nielsen 2005-04-30 19:27:38 EDT
Thanks for the links/hints. Doing a bit more research I found that the problem
is due to hardware limitations related to Soyo SY-P4I875P DRAGON 2

http://www.soyogroup.com/kb/kbdesc.php?id=160

"When using a non Windows XP system, only 4 harddisks/IDE devices are supported
at the same time on IDE 1,2 and SATA 1,2. Windows XP systems can support all 6
devices on these ports (2 SATA, 4 parallel ATA/ATAPI devices)."
