Description Juergen Gier 2008-01-31 23:15:50 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; de; rv: Gecko/20071213 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
On booting this kernel first I see is this message:
ata1: SRST failed (errno=-16)

After a major hardware upgrade (Gigabyte GA-M56S-S3 board with Athlon64 X2 4800+) I moved my two DVD drives to a Promise Ultra133 TX2 IDE card and upgraded F8 to 64 bit. With the kernel that shipped with F8 there was no error message, only now, after updating the kernel.
After the error message boot continues normally without delay, and both affected drives work normally, too, so I'm not terribly concerned. Thought I'd report it anyway.
It seems DELL owners used to experience this one frequently on FC5/6, plus a 1-2 min delay (which I am fortunately spared).

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 09:39:38 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 05:53:46 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
