Description of problem:
I have a HP 7200i parallel port cd burner and am using the latest 2.4.18-19.8.0
kernel available.

Issuing modprobe pg hangs the system and the only solution is to turn off the
machine's power.

I connect up the burner using:

modprobe paride
modprobe epat
modprobe pg

If I ctrl+alt+F1 and issue:

modprobe pg verbose=2

This text repeats ad infinitum in the console window...

pg0: Completion stat=0x58 err=0x0 phase=1 timeout
pg0: Read 36 bytes

I had this problem with Debian woody and it was a problem the the epat module
which was subsequently fixed (see debian bug 166986).



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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect HP 7200i burner to parallel port
2. Switch to console with ctrl+alt+f1
3.modprobe paride
4. modprobe epat
5. modprobe pg
    

Actual Results:  The following text repeats in the console over and over:

pg0: Completion stat=0x58 err=0x0 phase=1 timeout
pg0: Read 36 bytes

Expected Results:  I expect the cd burner to be connected.

Typo. It's a 7200e not 7200i.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
