Description of problem:
I have corrupted data transfers from my cd-rom/cdrw

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Copy any larger file from cdrom/cdrw drive
2.Unpack or check MD5-sum

Actual Results:  The file is copied without any error messages, but during 
unpacking or installing there are errors (rpm checksum etc.). I found, that 
after enabling DMA for cdrom, this problem disappears. This bug appeared with 
version 7.3.

Additional info:

1. Comp Athlon 1800+, 256 MB DDR RAM, ABIT KR7, Cyberhome DVD drive
2. Comp Athlon 1700+, 256 MB DDR RAM, Soltek SL-75DRV4, NEC CDRW

do you know if dma is enabled for the cdrom drive?

Comment 2 Vaclav "sHINOBI" Misek 2002-08-02 09:26:44 UTC
In default it is disabled from 7.3 and in /etc/proc/ide/hdc/settings is 0 in 
DMA collumn. After enabling DMA the transfers are without corruptions 
(through /etc/sysconfig/harddiskhdc). As I wrote the same think happened with 
different board and drive. I had already problems with verifying Redhat install 
CD`s. The checksum was sometimes OK, but sometimes not. With DMA enabled, 
checksums were OK everytime.

Comment 3 Vaclav "sHINOBI" Misek 2002-08-26 11:27:54 UTC
Seems to be fixed in latest kernels 2.4.18-5 and 2.4.18-10. Thanks.
