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
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.modify grub.conf to include append="hdc=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.
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!
Right you are.
Getting rid of the append lines solved the problem.
Curious that the old grub.conf did work under redhat7.2
