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
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
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...
Also, we have a kernel in rawhide with updated drivers for this SCSI card;
could you try this ?
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
