Description of problem:
Upgrading to kernel 2.4.20-13.8 hangs up the system during CD burning. I tested
this using two different hardware types. A sony dvd-cdrw and HP cd-writer.
booting with 2.4.18-27.8 the problems goes away. This may be related to a
NFS/network problem. becuase the home directory are nfs mounted and I have also
notice random errors during NFS copy of large files with an input/output error.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrade to 2.4.20-13.8 on a redhat 8 system
2.run Xcdroast to burn cd with nfs mounted home directory
3.the system hags up dring the writing step and the keyboard lights flash

does this still happen if you disable magicdev ?
Comment 2 Mahmoud Hanafi 2003-06-03 12:34:32 EDT
Yes disabling magicdev corrects the problem. But why is this. and is this a bug
in magicdev?

Comment 3 Alan Cox 2003-06-08 08:29:24 EDT
It looks like an ide bug in the ide-scsi layer, but magicdev happens to be the
trigger. Still working on this
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2003-06-27 17:06:07 EDT

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/
