Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8212
boot with chinon 535 drive loops in scsi
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:25:06 EDT
I have upgraded to 6.0 and cannot boot with the chinon 535 cdrom drive
attached to my Adaptec 2940 U card. When scsi is looping through the
attached devices, it gets to the chinon drive and goes into some kind of
loop where it says it is trying harder. I have been using this drive for
years on both win95 and older versions of Redhat. I would like to
continue to use it to play my audio cds. Right now I have the power cable
disconnected to make it easier to go back and forth on my dual boot system
win95/linux. When I had a Sound Blaster 16 with scsi, I had to make a
change because the cdrom was responding with a code X'03' during boot
initialization. I can send you that code if it would help. I am
preparing to purchase the redhat 6.1 soon so I would like to find out what
is wrong and get it fixed. Thanks
Did 6.1/6.2 fix it ?
No 6.1 did not fix the problem.
I no longer have the Chinon 535 drive attached to my system. I have upgraded to
RH8.0. I still have the drive so can test it with 8.0 if desired.
Please test the drive with Red Hat Linux 8.0 and fill in that information in
this bug report.
Closing out due to bit-rot.
