Description Enrico Scholz 2001-05-04 06:25:59 EDT
Current kernel does not detect an open tray on some(/most) IDE-drives. For
details see

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-21 05:56:18 EDT
Our RAWHIDE kernel should have a more recent ide-cd where this is fixed.
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2001-05-24 17:25:53 EDT
Currently I have not a machine available where I can test the rawhide-kernel,
but the the source (drivers/ide/ide-cd.c:2405-2415) *looks* like the issue is
still existing.

It should be reproducible when doing this:
1. take a machine with a (cheap) ide-cdrom drive
2. load the cdrom module with `autoclose=1' param (default)
3. open tray
4. execute `mount /mnt/cdrom'

The tray _should_ be closed now; but because kernel relies on special features
(Fuji) it fails with 'no disc' on kernel 2.4.
Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2001-07-16 03:17:56 EDT
verified with beta1 kernel
Comment 4 Enrico Scholz 2001-08-06 03:28:52 EDT
still in beta3
Comment 5 Enrico Scholz 2002-02-22 11:26:14 EST
Fixed both in vanilla kernel and rawhide kernel-2.4.17-*
