Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4036
6.0 doesn't support backpack cdrom.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 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
Is anybody looking into this problem??!!!
Try the boot images at:
Can we expect to see any progress on this bug in the near future?

Tried the latest boot image, did not work.
What was the error/problem?

The problem is that the RedHat 6.0 boot disk does not recognize my BackPack cd-rom.
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)
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?
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?
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!
