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):
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 ?
Yes disabling magicdev corrects the problem. But why is this. and is this a bug
It looks like an ide bug in the ide-scsi layer, but magicdev happens to be the
trigger. Still working on this
Think I have it fixed
when will the changes be rolled up in to a release.
I don't know the timescale for the next errata sorry
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
