Description of problem:
When i attempt to record a cd under red hat 7.3, it will die immediately, before
burning anything to the disc, with scsi errors.

the behavior is evident with cdrecord and cdrdao.  I tried both the redhat
distributed builds of these programs and my own old builds from source that i
used under 6.2.

I think this is the same bug as seen on LKML

The problem does not occur every time but has happened several times.  Last
night i was able to fix it by playing around with hdparm settings for the drive.
 The setting that seemed to matter was using_dma, however I cannot recreate the
error today.  

I am running ximian gnome.  I have disabled the gnome automount stuff.

Problem occurred with the skipjack beta 2 kernel release also.  I had strange
problems with my PS/2 mouse locking up under 7.2, fixed them by upgrading the
kernel ONLY to the skipjack kernel.  I did not 

The setup works flawlessly under red hat 6.2 (i built my own kernel with
ide-scsi support from the red hat kernel source), and under windows 98.  

the system is an abit bh6, celeron 1000.  the cdrw is a sony, connected to a
promise ultra66 IDE card on its own channel.  

dmesg output and error messages from cdrecord are attached.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run cdrecord or cdrdao on my hardware under red hat 7.3

Actual Results:  scsi errors

Expected Results:  disc should be burned

one thing i did not mention above - i have an rc.local script that sets the
hdparm settings for the drive with:
                /sbin/hdparm -c 1 -d 1 -u 1 $1

Same settings work under 6.2.

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/
