Re: sg (scsi generic) module missing



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

About what's being discussed, I just ponder that failing to work
correctly with common devices (usb-storage, etc) is a fair good way of
killing a distribution. Ok, that's a will to make everything work with
certain device drivers (like make scsi disks work with sr_mod
(/dev/sr*) and (/dev/scd*)) but it is also very important to have in
mind that, until it is done and working fine, the "deprecated" devices
and modules and functions and whatsoever must still work in good shape.

The mainstream kernel 2.6.6-rc3-bk3 works with /dev/sg*. There are
bugs, but the user is still able to deal with them and get job done.
The fact that mainstream and FC2T3 differs in matters of functionality
raises the fear that such incompatibilities grow bigger in the future
and portability and interoperability among distributions (FC, SuSe,
Conectiva, Slackware, etc...) become a subject of concern. That would
be bloody sucking.

Regards,

Casimiro
