RHEL5.1 - results.xml for ia64-xen system with 20070927.0 tree

For x86_64 arch, the results.xml file itself is showing empty. Only could
provide ia64-xen results.xml file in this case.

Hi Satyabrata,

I checked the result log, the error is:
    Please insert a data CD disk into hdc and then press ENTER to continue !
      +++ Start testing CD-ROM ... 

      +++ Error: Mount media failed !

      Please check if the disk you inserted is good media,
      or you forget to insert the disk ?

      +++ CD/CD-R/CD-RW test failed.

seem no cdrom disk been provided. are you testing on a remote machine ? If so,
you need someone(who is near to the test machine) to help you insert CD/DVD
disks into the cdrom drive as the test asked.

Please notice the CDROM test is an "interactive" test, it will ask user to
insert or remove testing media(CD/DVD/CD-R disks etc.)

Could you please verify if a proper(also a good) media/disk is inserted and then
re-test ?

Please let me know if this issue still exists.

Thanks very much!
Comment 7 Satyabrata Maitra 2007-10-12 07:39:39 EDT

I also think so! Yes, I did it remotely! And naturally, no media entered!
Currently, I tested it on my own test system, arch- x86_64, with hts-5.1-3. And
its still FAIL. I am attaching its necessary results file below. Please see
once. Btw, I cound not test it on ia64, because, i do not have any ia64 system
with me and with physical access! Lets see, if i can manage one.

Comment 10 YangKun 2007-10-25 10:38:23 EDT
Hi Satyabrata,

The error shows one file(/usr/bin/vimtutor) is not written to the cd-rw disc,
have you done some package install/un-install while the CDROM test was running ?

Could you please confirm if the file "/usr/bin/vimtutor" exists on your test
machine and then re-run the CDROM test again ? And please do not run other
commands or programs(especially not to install/un-install software) while the
CDROM test is running.
