Description of Problem:
Unable to install RH 7.1 on an IBM Netfinity 5000 system,
Boots off of CD OK, but cannot read CD at selecting CD media screen.
Install using boot diskette also fails.
Installing with "linux ide=nodma" works.
contents of cat /proc/ide/hda/model :
SANYO CD-ROM CRD-1332P
Cannot read CD at selecting CD media screen. Installation cannot proceed.
CDROM model should have been added to the blacklist per Bugzilla #45169.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Added to the blacklist in 2.4.7-0.14.1
Still unable to install without having to pass "linux ide=nodma" when
installing RH 7.2 RC1.
As it appears that the blacklist is ignored in this case, I'd love to know which
chipset (eg IDE driver) this is, so I can check the driversource for this.
Reliance Open South Bridge (ROSB3) chipset
Works with RH 7.2 RC2.
Works with RH 7.2 RC2. -> closing as fixed
