Description jfm2 2001-05-09 19:26:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [fr] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i586)

Description of problem:
I am unable to burn CDs on my equipment.  SCSI controller is Tekram DC390F
(Sym53c875 chip).  Drive is Teac R56S.  Motherboard has a VIa Apollo MVP3

Xcdroast immediately ejects the CD with a drive not ready message.. 
Gcombust from power tools happily goes along but it looks like it does not
record anything

Because the two recorders are failing I think this is a kernel issue.  
Also I see many messages from the scsi controller in this vein:

sym53c875E-0-<3,0>: sync msgout: 1-3-1-c-10
sym53c875E-0-<3,0>: sync msg in: 1-3-1-19-f.
sym53c875E-0-<3,0>: sync: per=25 scntl3=0x30 scntl4=0x0 ofs=15 fak=0 chg=0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just try to burn a CD

Can you try the ncr53c8xx module instead ?
It is slightly different for cards that are _almost_ identical...

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-21 09:44:36 UTC
Also, we have a kernel in rawhide with updated drivers for this SCSI card; 
could you try this ?

Comment 3 jfm2 2001-05-25 22:16:19 UTC
In fact problem was that I had told xcdroast drive was a TEAC R55S (R56S was not
in list).   It didn't like it.  Once I let xcdroast to autodetect drive it
worked both with the Symbios and the NCR driver.

A minor problem is thatr drive initialisation is now much longer than with RH
7.0 and kernel 2.2
