Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241858
FC6.93 rawhide sees my ata/ide drives as scsi - sda, sdb......
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:50:43 EST
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):
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
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'.
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 0 117220824 sda

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
- 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!
