We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 kenfury 2001-02-18 15:37:21 EST
You have reproduced this error?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-18 23:40:37 EST
No, I don't think so.

We need some more information on your hardware; motherboard type,
IDE controller chipset, are you using any add-in IDE cards, etc.
Also, drive type couldn't hurt.
Comment 4 kenfury 2001-02-19 00:56:50 EST
MoBo   M805LR   (not quality workmanship here)
Via KT133   chipset
Fujistu MPG3xxxAT 20.4 gig  
no add on IDE cards or anything else

I have used on with 2.4.2pre3 kernel and am having no problems now
however this contunues with a recompiled kernel that "shipped" with 7.0.90
Comment 5 Michael K. Johnson 2001-02-21 10:44:23 EST
OK, our current kernel source tree almost certainly fixes this.
Please try our next released beta kernel (available shortly),
as I think it has all the same IDE fixes as 2.4.2pre3.
Re-open this bug report if that kernel doesn't fix the problem.
