Description Joseph Shraibman 2003-06-02 03:26:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529

Description of problem:
See the URL.  Basically my HP 8200e cdrw won't work with the stock redhat 9
kernel (I had this problem with redhat 8 as well).  I had to boot the 2.4.20
kernel from kernel.org, then reboot with the redhat kernel to get the cdrw to
work.  I'm having similar problems with my FTDI usb->serial port but I don't
have as detailed debug info on that.

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

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in an HP 8200e cd writer
2. cat /proc/scsi/scsi or do a cdrecord -scanbus to show that it doesn't work.
3.
    

Actual Results:  [jks@jks-laptop /proc/scsi]$ cat scsi
Attached devices: none


Expected Results:  [jks@jks-laptop /mnt/cdrom]$ cat /proc/scsi/scsi

Additional info:

This is obviously a redhat problem

This might be related to bug 80328

Comment 1 Joseph Shraibman 2003-06-03 16:37:37 UTC
This appears fixed in kernel-2.4.20-18.9

Comment 2 Joseph Shraibman 2003-06-04 15:56:15 UTC
Whoops.  Spoke too soon.  After I power cycled the cd burner it doesn't work
anymore.

Comment 3 Joseph Shraibman 2003-06-04 16:21:16 UTC
However my FTDI serial cable does appear to be working fine right now

Comment 4 Joseph Shraibman 2003-06-05 18:18:08 UTC
The cd burner decided to work today with the regular redhat kernel:

... so I'd say the the problem is itermittent

Comment 5 Chandrasekhar KG 2003-09-05 12:18:35 UTC
I have run into problems with my HP 8200e too.
It seems persistent from Redhat 7.3 through 9.0
Plugin the CD-writer and power it on while the machine is running and it hangs
the machine.
My configuration: Athlon XP 1800+ /512MB PC 2100 RAM/Nvidia N266VM Motherboard 

Can someone please advice?

Of course, recompiling the kernel fixes the problem, but was wondering whether
something can be done so the stock kernel works fine.

Comment 6 Pete Zaitcev 2004-01-17 19:28:30 UTC
Anyone had a chance to try the 8200e on Fedora with 2.4.22-1.2140 yet?
I had some significant usb-storage upgrades there.


Comment 7 Joseph Shraibman 2004-01-17 23:36:25 UTC
Can I install a kernel from Fedora on a redhat 9 machine?

Comment 8 Pete Zaitcev 2004-01-17 23:43:29 UTC
FC1 kernel is compatible, and I used it over RHL9 userland.
They might yet be unified, in the same way 7.x & 8 were.
However, external modules are virtually guaranteed to break,
e.g. Nvidia and such. So, just use it for testing.


Comment 9 Joseph Shraibman 2004-01-18 00:09:47 UTC
Where can I get the rpm?  Do I have to download the fedora iso and
unpack it?

Comment 10 Joseph Shraibman 2004-01-18 00:14:19 UTC
Nevermind, found this:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/1/i386/

Is there some reason you want me to test 2140 and not 2149?

Comment 11 Pete Zaitcev 2004-01-18 00:33:32 UTC
Any one works. Just the updates to usb-storage were in -1.2140.

Comment 12 Joseph Shraibman 2004-01-18 03:55:45 UTC
Nope, doesn't work.  Same as before.

Comment 13 Pete Zaitcev 2004-08-10 19:26:11 UTC
Joseph, I'm really sorry, but this is a WONTFIX. It just takes 
too much to backport necessary fixes. Please switch to FC2 which
has a way better 2.6 kernel. File a new bug if it fails to work.


Comment 14 Joseph Shraibman 2004-08-11 04:16:08 UTC
I tried it with the latest fedora core 2 kernel and it doesn't work
either.  I'm trying to change the product to fedora core but I don't
have a '2' option on the version.

Comment 15 Joseph Shraibman 2004-08-11 04:16:38 UTC
Nevermind, got the right version.

Comment 16 Joseph Shraibman 2004-08-11 04:24:42 UTC
Whoops.  Just realized I was using the latest fc 1 kernel.  I'm going
to test with the correct kernel now.

Comment 17 Joseph Shraibman 2004-08-11 04:39:57 UTC
Can't install the fc2 kernel on redhat 9.  I'm putting the status back
as WONTFIX.

Comment 18 Pete Zaitcev 2004-08-11 04:55:51 UTC
Well, duh. Of course you need the whole FC2 system.

I did run FC2 kernels on FC1, but it's a hell of a job. You'd need
new modutils, initscrips, and maybe other stuff, I forget now...
Pulling that on RHL9 is not likely to work.


Comment 19 Joseph Shraibman 2005-09-30 01:14:40 UTC
It works fine with fedora core 3
