Re: CD-ROM drive stopped working after upgrade

If I just have ide-scsi in grub.conf (i.e. kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.327 ro root=LABEL=/ ide-scsi rhgb nofb) or remove the entry completely (i.e. kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.327 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb nofb) I can read CD-ROMs and play audio CDs.

Is this a bug and if so what in? Surely the final release of FC2 will need to address this?

Thanks for the replies that enabled me to fix this.

If you do have "hdc=ide-scsi" in grub.conf, then your cdrom link is
invalid. Either remove that option from grub, or change the link to point
to scd0.

The recomended way is to remove the option. The ide-scsi subsystem was
broken in the first 2.6 kernels (and it was never that good to start
with). I don't know its state in the new ones, but I guess the
recomendation keeps.

On my fedora partition I have to enter
ide-scsi....No hdc or hdd mentioned
to get it to work...On this debian partition I do not have an entry for ide,scsi or hdx and it works ok....
