Description Raghavendra Biligiri 2006-10-19 07:02:49 EDT
Description of problem:
During Installation the host tries to enumerate the keyboard/mouse dongle for 
the Raritan KVM.At this time timeouts have been observed. So if the system has 
USB Floppy/CDROM and if the Raritan USB KVM Dongle is being enumerated first 
then due to these timeouts the usb-storage driver will not be loaded.So the USB 
storage devices will be inaccessible.
Adding the Raritan KVM USB dongle to the blacklist fixes this issue

John - review this issue for R5, obtain a KVM for testing as required.
Comment 5 Samuel Benjamin 2006-10-27 13:31:50 EDT
FTR (for the record) .. patch is provided by Dell to fix this issue.
Comment 6 Amit Bhutani 2006-11-03 01:22:55 EST
Raising severity as the Raritan KVM USB dongle is commonly used in *all* of
Dell's test labs.

Dell will be more than happy to test and post results on the test package, so
there shouldn't be a need to send H/W to RH. As a matter of fact, as per comment
#1, issues has already been regressed successfully as fixed with the proposed
patch. Can someone from RH please review and comment on the patch ??
Comment 7 John Feeney 2006-11-07 15:38:47 EST
Code with patch has been built by Brew and can be tested
(/mnt/brew/scratch/jfeeney/task_355953). Can be tested by Dell.
