Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456627
CAN'T USE DRAC4 VIRTUAL CDROM IN RHEL5.2
Last modified: 2008-12-02 20:58:39 EST
Description of problem:
EL5 kernel (2.6.18-92) cannot detect DRAC4 Virtual CDROM.
On EL4, it's seen as IDE device, hdf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
In rhel5.2, drivers/ide/pci/siimage.c don't support DRAC4 again,
drivers/ata/pata_sil680.c do it. so, we should enable pata_sil680 as a module
in kernel config file.
and please make pata_sil680.ko included in isolinux/initrd.img, thanks

I think it a bug, it's a kernel .config bug, although it's not a source code bug, it's a configuration bug.
This is a bug. Looks to be covered by bug 212391.
Jason's comments regarding including the sil680 module are correct.
More info, tying things together:
The Red Hat Knowledge Base article that mentions this is
I contacted Red Hat Support as per the KB article, and according to service request #1852342: The test package is expected to be made available with the release of RHEL5.3 beta, (which is currently planned for release early Oct 2008, but obviously, can change).
So not sure if there will be a separate test package, or if the fix will be in the RHEL 5.3 Beta ISO images (strongly hoping the latter).
Have checked RHEL 5.3 beta ISO image, and found the module have included of the kernel.
However, it was not worked when try to do a install.
Checked isolinux/initrd.img and found the module was not included by initrd.img
is not it need to include it in initrd.img?
