Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 57483
(IDE CDROM)7.2 will not install on a NetVista with LTN486S
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:51 EDT
Description of Problem:
When installing 7.2 on a IBM NetVista TYPE 6578-TBU + LTN486S cdrom, you
hdc: ide_cdrom_setup failed to register device with the cdrom driver.
and just after /sbin/loader the kernel will oops.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy an IBM NetVista Type 6578-TBU _with_ a LTN486S (another 6578-TBU I
have has a samsung and that works fine; IBM mixes and matches drives
within the same type and model.)
2. install 7.2
hdc will not be registered and
kernel will oops just after /sbin/loader
be able to install
disabling dma with "linux ide=nodma" does not help. this seems like a
LTN486S issue with the "boot kernel" since I can use this cdrom fine once
7.2 is installed and running... I just used a known good cdrom that
worked with the 7.2 install (the samsung drive mentioned above).
This sounds like a kernel issue. Changing component to the kernel.
