Description of problem:
When installing RH, "hdd=ide-scsi" not appended to /boot/grub/grub.conf kernel
line when system has 2 ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drives. Same problem with RH 8.0
hdc: PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W1610A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: Pioneer DVD-ROM ATAPIModel DVD-106S 011, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3. Only one drive has ATAPI enabled
Actual Results: Only one drive has ATAPI enabled
Expected Results: Both drives should have ATAPI enabled
No, we only use ide-scsi for CD-Rs because it's needed to actually do CD
recording due to silliness in how cdrecord and the SCSI midlayer interact.
Otherwise, ide-cd is just fine.
But some programs require this functionality, rpcmgr is one of them for example.
(please read comments in header of this file)
GToaster needs for the cd-rom reader to be ide-scsi also for it to be able to
copy from cd to cd. I think this would be a good idea.
