Hi,

 I am having my secondary hardisk (Seagate ST380020ACE 80 GB) unreadable by
fedora 8. It reads it as 0 MB drive. Here's the output from dmesg.

'Fdisk -l' shows the information about the primary hardisk only (*WDC
WD1600BB) *. So its of no use. I tried fdisk on /dev/sdb, but still no info.


Today, I tried via knoppix and it mounted both the drives and all the
partitions in them automatically. Here's the output of dmesg from knoppix
5.1.1.

As u can see fedora 8 reads the IDE drives as sd*, while knoppix reads its
correctly according to the convention as hd*. What can be the problem? I
want fedora 8 to be reading my secondary hardisk.

Thanx!

Did you get this into bugzilla or make any progress on it with other steps? I don't see this in bz yet but I may be missing it.
