Description lynn evan sorenson 2007-05-31 07:19:24 UTC
Description of problem: (not positive this is HAL)

I have no scsi, sata, usb connected.  Mount shows only

Original device.map had (hd0) /dev/sda, (hd1) /dev/sdb.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Impossible to get rid of.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open shell tool, type mount:/dev/sdb6 on / type ext3 (rw), /dev/sdb5 on /boot
type ext3 (rw), /dev/sdb3 (swap).  All these are on hdb.
2.In /dev, the only device starting w/ h is 'hpet'.  No
Actual results:
On boot up I get errors: usb 1-1 device descriptor read error/64 -62 (repeat 4
times), then 'not accepting address 5', 'not accepting address 6'.

Expected results:
ata/ide identified correctly.  usb identified correctly.

Additional info:  Can send examples of mount, mtab, /proc/partitions, sfdisk,
and more if asked.

Remember!  I have no sata, usb, scsci (unless CDs are considered scsci) but they
should be hdc & hdd.  The following is short and from /proc/partitions:
major minor  #blocks  name

   8     1   58733608 sda1

Hmm, sorry to rant but

 - you filed two bugs; it would have been nice if you closed
   bug 241857 - done that for you

 - it's not a bug that the devices are named sd* instead of hd*;
   that's just a side effect of moving from ide to new pata drivers
   that use the SCSI midlayer internally - which makes sense
   as recent SATA and all ATAPI is basically just SCSI at the low
   level anyway

 - what's in a device name *anyway*? You should never ever depend
   on device names; use the persistent names in /dev/disk/*; that's
   what they're there for

 - the usb errors should be filed as a bug against the kernel; because
   that's the package the USB drivers originate from

 - have no idea why you filed this against hal-info

Sorry if this response comes across as offensive; it's written in the hope that
it will help you file bugs in the future. Thanks!
