Fwd: Re: Bug#345067: Draft of documenting the ide-generic problem

Hmm. I sent a followup to #345067 that is currently assigned to the ctte 
and received the mail below from debian-ctte-request.

Looks like something is misconfigured.

I am not completely sure that ide-generic really is needed. I now know
 it=20 is not for my Toshiba Satellite A40 laptop (piix).

 http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=3D352753;msg=3D69 = [1]
! I guess this shows why ide.agent is needed (to load ide-disk, ide-cd,
! ...) , although my case does _not_ show why that script should need
 to=20 ! include ide-generic. Guess we need other people testing to show
 the need= =20
! for this.

At first it _seemed_ ide-generic was needed, but more careful testing=20
showed it actually is not. I have just confirmed this by renaming the=20
ide-generic driver and regenerating the initrd: the system booted just=20

So, it may be a good idea to ask people who've reported issues in the
 past= =20
to do specific tests using current kernel, udev and initrd generators
 to=20 check if ide-generic really is needed.
