Description Need Real Name 2002-05-21 19:21:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (WinNT; U)

Description of problem:
have added  append "hdc=ide-scsi" to my grub.conf and /sbin/insmod ide-scsi to my /etc/rc.d/rc.local (and similar for the tape device)
The ide-scsi emulator does not seem to be doing anything, though if I try to reload it, I do get a message saying
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18-4/kernel/drivers/scsi/ide-scsi.o 
The ide-scsi worked as expected in redhat 7.2
 insmod: a module named ide-scsi  already exists.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.modify grub.conf to include append="hdc=ide-scsi"
3.insmod ide-scsi
4.try to use the ide-scsi device

Actual Results:  cdrecord -scanbus results in cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open scsi driver.
tar cfv /dev/st0 directoryname results in tar: /dev/st0: cannot open: No such device

Expected Results:  the cdrecord should list available scsi devices
the tar should write to the tape.

Additional info:

The ide-scsi tape device worked under redhat 7.2.  No ide-scsi has worked since upgrading my kernel.

append "hdc=ide-scsi" to my grub.conf 

hmmm grub doesn't understand "append" lines, you need to add the thing
to append at the end of the line with "vmlinuz" in it!
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-05-22 18:02:18 EDT
Right you are.  
Getting rid of the append lines solved the problem.

Curious that the old grub.conf did work under redhat7.2
