Description Alex Kanavin 2006-09-20 11:18:49 EDT
Fedora installer refuses to recognize an external firewire drive as an install
target. The kernel sees the drive just fine and loads the necessary 
drivers, but it does not show up in the list of drives to install to.

External USB drives, however, are recognized and configured on /dev/sda when

Can you switch to tty2 and provide the output of list-harddrives?
Comment 2 Alex Kanavin 2006-09-20 19:35:15 EDT

hda 76316.5942383

That's it.
Comment 3 Alex Kanavin 2006-09-21 11:10:08 EDT
I had a look at what list-harddrives does, and here's a couple more diagnostics:

>>> from kudzu import *

Driver:         None
Device:         hda
[Desc:           (1394-ATAPI rev1.10
Driver:         sbp2
Device:         None

Hope that helps.

Hrmm... can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog?

Can you try:

>>> from kudzu import *


Comment 8 Alex Kanavin 2006-09-22 04:53:38 EDT
Sure. It's

Driver:         None
Device:         sda

Also, /proc/scsi/scsi is interesting:
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: WDC WD80 Model: 0JB-00JJA0       Rev:     
  Type:   Direct-Access-RBC                ANSI SCSI revision: 04

/sys/bus/scsi/devices/.../type reads 14. Apparently it isn't recognized by kudzu as a harddrive yet.
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2006-09-22 12:34:51 EDT
Fixed in 1.2.57-1; thanks for the help.
Comment 10 Alex Kanavin 2006-09-22 12:48:09 EDT

+                       case 0x14:

I think it should be 0x0e. That 'type' file contains decimal integers, not hex ones.

Oops, thanks.
