Subject:   HD LED stays on after probing atapi cdrom.
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
   I managed to re-compile the kernel with atapi option and wcd0 device
enabled. When I reboot the machine, the probing went fine. It recognized
wdc1 and wcd0. But what happens is that my hardrive LED will stays on
until I reboot the machine and disable the wdc1. But before I disable
the wdc1, I can mount the cdrom, cd to /cdrom, do ls and it'll display
the content of the cd-rom. I am puzzled. I couldn't find a lot of 
discussion regarding this issue, and hopefully someone in here can 
enlighten my day.
   Thanx in advance.

p/s: I have 2.1 , my cdrom is Sony cdu76E atapi-quad speed. It is
     on 2nd controller, and jumpered Master.
p/ss: Or maybe there's something I need to change in the /etc/fstabs
      in order to mount it properly ???
