Description of problem:
I have an RH 7.2 that I just fully updated to current. It has a SanDisk SDDR-31
compact flash reader on it. This reader used to work with the previous kernel
(2.4.9-34, I think) - I used it for a year or two with the old kernel. With the
latest kernel that up2date installs for RH 7.2,(2.4.20-13.7), I get:
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
SCSI device sda: 96385 512-byte hdwr sectors (49 MB)
sda: Write Protect is off
usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame# 1383
At the user level, the mount /mnt/flash command completed, but cp /mnt/flash/*
wherever/ just hung. Rebooted several times and it always failed this way.
Let me know if there is any debugging info needed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm told there aren't significant changes between the 2.4.20-13.7 kernel for RH
7.2, and the 2.4.20-13.9 kernel for RH 9, at least in the USB area.
Nevertheless, I took this reader over to my RH 9 system, and it worked perfectly
there. Copied off all files, no hangs or error messages.
So maybe there are more changes in -13.9 than you think.
No, there aren't any differences among ., but the usb-uhci is a little
too rude to some chipsets in -13 due to misguided VIA workarounds.
Please try 2.4.20-18 (2.4.20-18.7 in your case).

dmesg output mounting /mnt/flash with kernel 2.4.20-18.7
Here is the dmesg output with kernel 2.4.20-18.7.
The user command executing was mount /mnt/flash. The command hung.
Note that with the -13.8 kernel, the mount command would work, but copying
files off the CF card would hang after a few files had been copied.
End of lifed since Jan 1st. No further updates for RHL7/8
Can you repeat this with RHL9 and the latest errata kernel ?
If so, please reopen.
