Description Need Real Name 2003-05-20 15:34:48 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to run the RedHat 9 installer, I am able to boot off of the CD-ROM
just fine. However, once I select an option and the kernel is loaded, the CD-ROM
stops working. This is a Dell PowerEdge 1650 with (I believe) a TEAC slimline
CD-ROM. As the kernel messages pass by, I see the kernel attempting to set a
speed on the CD-ROM and an error occuring, I'm assuming this is the problem.

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

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert RedHat 9 disc 1
2. boot computer
3. select any option
4. watch as the installer loses the CD-ROM
Actual results:
I am unable to use the CD-ROM to install RedHat, I had to install over the network.

Expected results:
The installer's kernel should not set bad CD-ROM parameters

Additional info:
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2003-05-20 16:05:16 EDT
exact error seems to be:hda
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2003-05-20 16:06:34 EDT
exact error appears to be:
hda : set_drive_speed_status: error=0x04
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-22 11:15:10 EDT
Would appear to be a kernel issue.
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2003-06-08 09:21:51 EDT
set_speed_status being rejected is fine.  I need to know the messages about the
IDE leading up to the fail 
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2003-06-08 13:24:24 EDT
sorry, i only had the one 1650 free and have since deployed it into production.
i'm getting more in, but it'll be awhile. dell has released a boot image that
works though, perhaps that would help? it's available at
http://support.dell.com/FileLib/Format.aspx?c=us&l=en&ReleaseID=R59144. if the
ticket is still open when i get my other 1650's in i'll grab the ide message.

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

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/
