Description Mark Dietz 2002-04-08 06:03:10 UTC
Description of Problem: An IDE seek error occurs when loading GNOME, mostly about the time it queries the CDROM. This problem occurs with ASUS motherboards 
with PIII CPU's and Via or Intel Chips. The source of the problem occurs when the Ultra DMA drive and CDROM are on the primary chain using the Ultra DMA cable. If 
they are put on different Interfaces the problem stops.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The Standard copy of GNOME with RH 7.1 and RH 7.2

How Reproducible:
Get a PIII machine with ASUS motherboard and Via or Intel chipsets
Get an Ultra DMA drive
Get a Ultra DMA cable

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug the Ultra DMA cable into machine in the Primary IDE connector. Then plug in Ultra DMA IDE drive and CDROM in the on cable
2. Build the machine with RH 7.2
3. Boot machine and open GNOME the error will occur within 1-3 reboots and will be persistant on other reboots

Actual Results:
The error causes sporatic IDE read problems and is fixed by separating the HD and CDROM

Expected Results:
The error not to occur

Additional Information:
Need to know if there is a fix because I need them both on the same interface

kernel or hardware issue, gnome-core is all userspace.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-09 12:12:16 UTC
I recommend disabling dma on the cdrom as experiment:
hdparm -d0 /dev/hdb

you can also try

rpm -e magicdev

as other thing to try....

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
