Description jimwright 1999-10-09 13:42:24 UTC
Bug 2701 prevented me from installing Red Hat 6.0 from my Backpack CD ROM. Bug 3939 prevented me from installing from my SCSI hard drive. I downloaded the boot image updates as suggested in 3939 comments (but it did not fix SCSI driver problems). This bug is in the updated boot images and is either a bug in the fix to 2701 or is unrelated. It may also occur in 6.1. In 6.0 I had the option of selecting an "other" CD type of Microsolution Backpack. In the update I have the option of selecting a parallel port CD ROM instead. In both 6.0 and the update I am told the device cannot be found anywhere, regardless of whether I attempt to pass the port address of LPT1 (e.g. bpcd=0x3bc or just 0x3bc - one of these must be correct, but this is the usual address anyway). The difference from 2701 is that there is an error message on one of the other virtual consoles saying something like: pcd.o not found in archive What I think has happened is that there has been some reorganisation of drivers so that bpcd is replaced by a generic pcd and this is supposed to fix 2701. But there is a bug in the fix.

Parallel port CD-ROMs will not work with the update images. To use a parallel-port CD-ROM, try getting the images from http://people.redhat.com/notting/paride/ -or- ftp://people.redhat.com/notting/paride/ Do these work better? ------- Additional Comments From 10/14/99 19:40 ------- ftp://people.redhat.com/notting/paride/boot.img worked much better. Once installation done (and after reading you emails) I did: mknod /dev/pcd b 46 0 rm /dev/cdrom ln -s /dev/pcd /dev/cdrom For the time being I have added these lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local: modprobe paride insmod bpck insmod pcd Thanks.
