Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207414
kernel-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 burns DVD coasters
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 EDT
Description of problem:
With my DVD writer (LG GSA-4167B, latest firmware DL13), when trying to write a
DVD (DVD+R) with growisofs, it gets to some (single digit) percentage, then
stops with the error message:
:-[ WRITE@LBA=21320h failed with SK=3h/ASC=02h/ACQ=00h]: Input/output error
builtin_dd: 135968*2KB out @ average 2.4x1385KBps
:-( write failed: Input/output error
/dev/dvd: flushing cache
:-[ SYNCHRONOUS FLUSH CACHE failed with SK=3h/ASC=A0h/ACQ=80h]: Input/output error
With the previous kernel-2.6.17-1.2174_FC5, everything works as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (3 coasters so far)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. pop blank DVD+R into drive
2. e.g. "growisofs -v -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd -dvd-video "/scratch/video/tmp/"
DVD gets written entirely
works with previous kernel-2.6.17-1.2174_FC5

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.
If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
It has gotten better. I only saw this problem once and at some 95 odd percent,
but as it is there still is something that is not quite right.
I'm currently on updated FC-6 and have since swapped my machine for an x86_64
one and I haven't seen this problem in quite a while. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE
as I can't reproduce it anymore.
