Description Karsten Hopp 2011-08-11 15:37:14 UTC
Description of problem:
the ide_pmac driver is currently built into the PPC* kernel, This driver takes precedence over the pata-pci-macio driver which results in CDROMs being detected as /dev/hda on Apple hardware. Anaconda and udev/dracut have problems with that.
I've built a custom kernel with ide_pmac completely disabled and now the CDROM gets detected as /dev/sr0 like on all other archs.

Comment 1 Josh Boyer 2011-08-11 20:38:02 UTC
I'll get this rolled into the next f16 and rawhide builds.

Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2011-08-12 12:30:37 UTC
This is fixed in rawhide and the changes are committed to f16.  Do you need an f16 build to shadow soon, or can you wait for 3.0.2 to be released?

Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2011-08-12 13:22:15 UTC
I can wait as I have a scratch build with that change that I can use for now.

Comment 4 Josh Boyer 2011-08-22 12:24:21 UTC
This should be fixed in the latest f16 builds.
