Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9474
files written to an ide zip drive are corrupted
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:37 EDT
I've got an internal IDE zip drive at /dev/hdd and am using:
* redhat 6.0
* kernel release 2.2.5-22 (the only thing I've upgraded)
* a Gateway GP6-400
my fstab has the following related entries:
* /dev/hdd1 /mnt/lzip ext2 user,noauto 0 0
* /dev/hdd4 /mnt/wzip vfat user,noauto 0 0
What happens is, I can mount and read a zip disk and everything is fine,
but anything I write to the disk from this system is unusable.
I can't use the files on the system that wrote 'em or anywhere else. The
files also fail a "sum" check:
[jamieg@test]cp /home/jamieg/bzip2-09.0c.tar.gz /mnt/wzip
I upgraded the kernel from 2.2.5-15 to 2.2.5-22 thinking that this might
correct the problem, but there has been no change.
You need a later kernel, such as the one that shipped with 6.1.
What is the latest version of the kernel and where can I get it? I was under the
impression that the rpms I downloaded from redhat today (to go to 2.2.5-22) were
the most recent ones.
