Description Davide Bolcioni 2007-05-16 12:24:15 UTC
Description of problem: When burning a DVD of rawhide-kde-20070502, system 
completely froze (had to hit hardware reset)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
2 of 2 attempts, happens from halfway to end of operation

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch k3b
2. burn DVD from ISO (set verify to on in the UI)
3. wait
Actual results:
The host freezes (no keyboard, no mouse, no screensaver, no ping) and has to 
be manually reset. On the second attempt, the burned DVD was actually 
functional; according to what could be seen on screen, the host froze during 
or after fixating but before ejecting the media.

Expected results:
No freeze. I have burned DVDs on this same hardware using 2.6.18 and 2.6.19 
kernels before.

Additional info: Nothing in /var/log/messages at or near occurrence. Did not 
try with a CD yet. This is a 4 GB Core2 Duo on an Intel 965 board with two 
SATA disks and a Plextor PX-755A burner (accessed as /dev/scd0, through 
pata_marvell I guess).

Just burned a CD-R, no freeze and working.

Comment 5 Davide Bolcioni 2007-11-04 16:50:56 UTC
FWIW, burned a Fedora Unity Fedora 7 DVD with kernel- and it 
worked fine, so I would suggest closing the bug as "spontaneously fixed" :-)

(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)


I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.

I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer

Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.

Thanks for using Fedora!
