Description of problem:
System cannot access or hangs when attempting to mount scsi cdrom
(/dev/scd0) on a laptop already having a primary (/dev/hdc) cdrom.
Installation program installed scsi cdrom (pcmcia) as the primary cdrom
(/mnt/cdrom) and the primary cdrom (/dev/hdc) as the secondary cdrom
(/mnt/cdrom1). The sr_mod fails to load after installation and is not found
in any scripts pertaining to the scsi pcmcia, init.d, or modules.conf. The
scsi.opts must be modified (change /dev/cdrom to /dev/scd0 and /mnt/cdrom
to /mnt/cdrom2) and the sr_mod must be loaded manually after rebooting the
system to enable scsi cdrom to co-exist with the primary cdrom.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat 7.1 on a laptop with a scsi adapter pcmcia card and scsi
cdrom writer attached.
Attempts to include post-install loading of sr_mod in the modules.conf file
resulted in a conflict with the parallel port zip drive scsi ppa driver.
Only modprobe sr_mod works after system start up to mount the scsi
cdrom-writer throught the pcmcia card.
going through old unclosed bugs..
is this still a problem with Fedora or RHEL ?
