Description Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2003-04-03 07:54:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030208

Description of problem:
I have two computers one UP and one SMP (both athlons) with internal ide zip-100
and both of them has some problem with it. Just mounting and unmounting the
drive results in error messages in /var/log/messages:

 localhost kernel: ide-floppy: CoD != 0 in idefloppy_pc_intr
 localhost kernel: hdg: ATAPI reset complete
 localhost kernel: ide-floppy: CoD != 0 in idefloppy_pc_intr
 localhost kernel: hdg: ATAPI reset complete
 localhost kernel: ide-floppy: CoD != 0 in idefloppy_pc_intr
 localhost kernel: hdg: ATAPI reset complete
 localhost kernel:  hdg: hdg4

While UP computer usually survive it (i.e. everything seems 
to be working inspite of errors), the SMP usually hangs
hard -- power cycle required.

Attempt to write to zip (or re-format it) makes a flury of the same errors and
sometimes (not 100% reproducible):

 localhost kernel: ide-floppy: CoD != 0 in idefloppy_pc_intr
 localhost kernel: hdg: ATAPI reset complete
 localhost kernel: ide-floppy: possible ide-floppy.c bug - Two request sense in
serial were issued
 localhost kernel: ide-floppy: hdg: I/O error, pc =  0, key =  2, asc = 3a, ascq
=  0
 localhost kernel: ide-floppy: hdg: I/O error, pc = 1b, key =  2, asc = 3a, ascq
=  0

Those were seen on both UP and SMP computers and SMP hangs again.
(I have yet to try "noacpi" option on smp system)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.plug zip into internal ide zip100 drive root: tail -f /var/log/messages
3.mount /mnt/zip
3. (as root) mkfs.ext2 /dev/hdg4


Actual Results:  Errors in /var/log/messages or computer hangs

Expected Results:  No eroors

Additional info:

UP computer: Shuttle AK32S / AthlonXP 2000+ / Maxtor Ultra100 ide contr
SMP: Tyan S2460 (amd-760) / AthlonMP 2000+ / Maxtor Ultra100 ide contr

both computers worked fine with rh8.0

Comment 1 Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2003-04-04 03:17:48 UTC
I played more with zip. Neither 'noacpi' nor booting into UP mode  changed
anything. I managed to 'solve' the problem by adding a second jumper to
zip drive (following 'A' configuration on the Zip sticker -- nothing
about this in any of my manuals):

Was:   (...50-pin...) o o X ( power )
Now:   (...50-pin...) o X X ( power )

That switched the drive into pio0 mode (was pio2) and I do not see any errors 
so far...

Hope this is of some help.

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2003-06-05 16:49:00 UTC
What IDE controller are they attached to >

Comment 3 Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2003-06-05 17:08:43 UTC
They are both Maxtor (Promise OEM) controllers.
The one in Tyan box is "Ultra100" (older) and in Shuttle "Ultra133".
Tyan used to have RH8.0 installed and it worked fine.

Same problem as original poster. I also have a Promise Ultra133 TX2. By the
looks of googling around, this is a frequently occuring, unfrequently solved
