From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)
Under 7.0, all SCSI devices are found. Under fisher, ZIP is found but not
CDROM at 0,0,0. Could burn CDs under 7.0. Uses Aic7xxx.o. Loading but
not finding device 0.
Reloaded 7.0 to make sure it wasn't something I did. Found CDROM again.
Reloaded fisher, again not found.
oddly enough however, I was given an entry in fstab for both CDROM and
CDROM1. System seems to be aware it exists but aicxxx isn't allowing it to
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load fisher
2. try to read from CDROM
3. run cdrecord -scanbus
Actual Results: CDROM not found but had fstab entries
Expected Results: read and record CDROMs
Forgot to mention, I have both an IDE and SCSI cdrom drives, hence the 2 entries
in fstab. they were listed correctly, as IDE and SCSI.
Last thing, my system is the same as listed in bug 28334. Sean
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
This was a bug in aic7xxx-6.0.8BETA that has been resolved by aic7xxx-5.2.3 and
aic7xxx-6.1.0 and later.
