Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491380
PPC IDE disks not detected
Last modified: 2013-01-09 22:27:48 EST
Booting rawhide installer on a mac mini ppc the installer is unable to find a disk to install to. This is because the IDE disk is never fully discovered by the kernel.
The kernel sees:
hda: ST940110A, ATA DISK drive
hda: host max PIO4 wanted PIO255(auto-tune) selected PIO4
hda: UDMA/100 mode selected
That's the end of all messages regarding hda. Interestingly enough, hdb is the cdrom and it is detected and usable just fine.
Fixed in CVS.
to be specific.
