Description William Shotts 2001-08-24 04:57:04 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801

Description of problem:
On my P200 machine, the ATAPI CDROM drive is not recognized after
installation of roswell (2).  I must manually load the cdrom kernel module
(for example, modprobe cdrom) for the driver to load.  System works with RH
7.1.  dmesg output is attached.  I notice that the IDE floppy driver is
loaded though it is not needed.  This differs from 7.1 behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install roswell on affected machine
2.mount /mnt/cdrom (mount fails)
3.modprobe cdrom
4.mount /mnt/cdrom (mounts succeeds)

We (Red Hat) really need to fix this before next release.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-25 11:00:07 UTC
Strange. This works for me.

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2001-08-25 12:42:08 UTC
I cannot reproduce it either on any hardware I have tried so far

Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-25 13:13:32 UTC
does running "depmod -ae" as root make the autoloading of ide-cd.o work again ?

Comment 6 William Shotts 2001-08-29 19:38:34 UTC
'depmod -ae' does fix the problem.

Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-03 17:35:02 UTC
depmod -ae is supposed to run at boot :(, _and_ at rpm -i time.
