Description Enrico Scholz 2001-05-04 10:25:59 UTC
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 09:56:18 UTC
Our RAWHIDE kernel should have a more recent ide-cd where this is fixed.

Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2001-05-24 21:25:53 UTC
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 07:17:56 UTC
verified with beta1 kernel

Comment 4 Enrico Scholz 2001-08-06 07:28:52 UTC
still in beta3

Comment 5 Enrico Scholz 2002-02-22 16:26:14 UTC
Fixed both in vanilla kernel and rawhide kernel-2.4.17-*
