Description Tim Waugh 2003-05-16 05:32:24 EDT
Description of problem:
After booting into 2.4.20-13.9 (i686) my parallel-port connected ZIP drive no
longer works.  When I boot back to 2.4.20-9 (i686) it works again.

This model uses the imm driver; I have seen an identical failure report for a
modem that uses the ppa driver.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.20-13.9

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to 2.4.20-13.9
2. Load ZIP drive driver module
    
Actual results:
imm: Version 2.05 (for Linux 2.4.0)
imm: Found device at ID 6, Attempting to use EPP 32 bit
imm: Communication established at 0x378 with ID 6 using EPP 32 bit
scsi3 : Iomega VPI2 (imm) interface
  Vendor: IOMEGA    Model: ZIP 250           Rev: L.58
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi removable disk sdb at scsi3, channel 0, id 6, lun 0
scsi: device set offline - not ready or command retry failed after bus reset:
host 3 channel 0 id 6 lun 0
SCSI device sdb: 196608 512-byte hdwr sectors (101 MB)
sdb: Write Protect is off
 sdb: I/O error: dev 08:10, sector 0

Expected results:

Tried 13.9.1 - no change.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2003-06-05 11:52:31 EDT
The newer Scsi code does further checks on the drive being ready etc. It looks
like this is the problem. Unfortunately it'll take someone with the hardware to
figure out why the sd driver decided the disk was still offline
