Description cfox 1999-07-14 13:48:58 EDT
The 5.2 boot disk recognized my backpack CDROM, but
the 6.0 boot disk doesn't.

Same problem in my case, I installed 5.1 with no problems,
but it is impossible for me to install 6.0
Comment 2 jose.castellano 1999-08-06 18:13:59 EDT
Is anybody looking into this problem??!!!

Can we expect to see any progress on this bug in the near future?

What was the error/problem?

The problem is that the RedHat 6.0 boot disk does not recognize my BackPack cd-rom.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-02 17:50:59 EDT
Are you using the image from the mentioned URL, or the
standard RH6.0/errata boot image?

What's the error when it tries to load the pcd module
(look on VTs 2,3,4)
Comment 7 jmannion 1999-09-05 15:45:59 EDT
The boot image from http://people.redhat.com.notting/ftp/paride does
not fit on a single disk. How can I get this to work as a boot disk?
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-07 10:04:59 EDT
ncftp /notting/paride > ls -l
-rw-r--r--   1 notting  notting      1474560 Aug 27 16:14 boot.img

It's the same size as all the other boot images. Did you
download it in binary mode?
Comment 9 jmannion 1999-09-10 14:29:59 EDT
The boot image on http://people.redhat.com/notting/ftp/paride/ works
just fine. Thankyou! I was making Linux "newbie" mistakes. Finally,
got my act together, thanks again!
