Package: kernel
Version: 2.6.7-1-686
Severety: minor

(This report has been sent because Marco d'Itri told me to do so on 
linux-hotplug-devel list. Feel free to say "not a bug".)

Marco d'Itri wrote the IDE hardware detection script for inclusion into the 
"hotplug" package: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.hotplug.devel/6003

However, I reported that his script won't work on my old SCSI-based server. 
Hardware of my old server:

Full thread:


This server has a LSI Logic SCSI adapter (with two hard disks attached) and a 
ServerWorks IDE adapter with one attached CD-ROM drive (that shoud appear 
as /dev/hda). For some strange reason, to use this CD-ROM, I must have both 
serverworks (loaded by hotplug), ide_generic (currently mentioned 
in /etc/modules) and ide_cd (to be loaded by the ide.rc script by Marco 
d'Itri, currently just mentioned in /etc/modules) modules loaded.

With all those modules loaded, I get:

ds:~# ls /proc/ide/*/media
ds:~# cat /proc/ide/hda/media

Marco d'Itri said that it's a bug that I have to place ide-generic 
into /etc/modules in order to use the CD-ROM drive, that's why I mailed this 
report. This bug is specific to serverworks IDE module, cannot be reproduced 
on via82cxxx (i.e. there is no need to load ide-generic to use IDE CD-ROMs 
with VIA IDE controllers).

Solution proposed by Marco d'Itri: kernel-image-2.6.x packages should add the 
following line to /etc/modprobe.d/kernel-image-(version):

install serverworks /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install serverworks && 
{ /sbin/modprobe ide-generic; /sbin/modprobe ide-cd; }

(although I would rather omit  /sbin/modprobe ide-cd if Marco includes his 
ide.rc file into the hotplug package)

I am using Debian Sarge and the kernel is 2.6.7-1-686 on that server. Output

I am going to close this bug for now, as it is against a
package that is no longer maintained. Please reopen and reassign it
if you observe the problem with the newer kernel images.
