Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240297
System freezes when burning DVD
Last modified: 2008-01-13 15:58:24 EST
Description of problem: When burning a DVD of rawhide-kde-20070502, system
completely froze (had to hit hardware reset)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2 of 2 attempts, happens from halfway to end of operation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch k3b
2. burn DVD from ISO (set verify to on in the UI)
The host freezes (no keyboard, no mouse, no screensaver, no ping) and has to
be manually reset. On the second attempt, the burned DVD was actually
functional; according to what could be seen on screen, the host froze during
or after fixating but before ejecting the media.
No freeze. I have burned DVDs on this same hardware using 2.6.18 and 2.6.19
Additional info: Nothing in /var/log/messages at or near occurrence. Did not
try with a CD yet. This is a 4 GB Core2 Duo on an Intel 965 board with two
SATA disks and a Plextor PX-755A burner (accessed as /dev/scd0, through
pata_marvell I guess).

Just burned a CD-R, no freeze and working.
FWIW, burned a Fedora Unity Fedora 7 DVD with kernel-184.108.40.206-61.fc6 and it
worked fine, so I would suggest closing the bug as "spontaneously fixed" :-)
(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)
I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer
Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.
Thanks for using Fedora!
