Bug#425851: linux-image-2.6.21-1-686: 2.6.21 doesn't find HDD in VMware Workstation (2.6.20 did)



tags 425851 wontfix
thanks

This issue has been diagnosed [1] as a bug in the emulator and has been 
fixed in version 6 of VMWare Workstation.

A patch for the kernel is available [2], but is unlikely to be accepted 
upstream and thus also not applied in Debian. You can of course apply the 
patch locally in a custom kernel. Alternatively, you can use the emulated 
IDE controller instead of the SCSI one.

Tagging the BR wontfix instead of closing so it remains available as a 
reference for others.

Cheers,
FJP
