From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.2.13 i586)
I tried to install "fisher" from an ATAPI-CDROM, from a SCSI-PLEXTOR-32x
and my SCSI-PLEXTOR CDRW (12832?). It finally works but it lasts very long
time! For example it takes nearly one minute from blanking the text-screen
to see the X-Cursor! I thought the system might have crashed the first
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just install...
We have seen this behaviour on some CD drives. Have not isolated what the
problem might be (kernel/hw related I imagine). The drive activity light kept
blinking the whole time right?
Yes, the drive activity light keeps blinking and my UltraPlex 32 changes
spinningspeed so often that the installation last longer as on the other drives.
Compared with each other the ATAPI-drive was the fastest (TEAC 540).
I saw this problem the first time. Every other RH or other CDs work perfectly.
This is most certainly a problem with the CD media.
