Description Bill Huang 2000-08-25 02:18:07 UTC
PC: SONY VAIO 505 laptop

It was OK to use SONY CDROM(PCGA-CD51) for installation of RC2.
But when system was booted after installation, CDROM is recognised as
TOSHIBA CDROM,when mounted cdrom, system told:

[root@localhost /root]# mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist

SONY CDROM was OK when on RHL6.2.

Some info are listed below, hope the bug will be resolved ASAP, otherwise
we will face the many,many complaints from SONY users.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-29 16:38:24 UTC
Did the system install properly from the CDROM device?

Are the only problems after you reboot after a successful install?

Comment 2 Bill Huang 2000-08-30 02:26:41 UTC
Sorry to report the bug to anaconda, it is really a bug of kernel.

Yes, system was installed properly with that magic code (boot:linux
ide2=0x180,0x386) from SONY CDROM.

For the second question, yes, only SONY CDROM has problems.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-26 10:31:15 UTC
Please verify against the Wolverine beta, as this is supposed to be fixed.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-05-31 19:13:15 UTC
Are there any further problems? I will mark this fixed if not.
