Re: cdrecord hangs my computer

Hi Linus, John, Ethan and others!

I tried everything suggested. First I compiled my kernel to use ide-cd instead of ide-scsi. No success, cdrecord did hang. Fortunately the whole machine did not hang.

Then I tried apply a patch Linus send me. So I changed settings so that HP 7200 ide burner is seen as ide-scsi device. After that cdrecord still freezes totally my machine.
I forgot to mention earlier: I tried cdrecord with older 2.4 kernel and it works fine (as ide-scsi device).

So I try to give more accurate info so You can debug this ide-scsi thing which is broken. I repeat already mentioned things so that "everything" is on one mail:

- Kernel 2.6.0-test11 with one patch on ide-scsi.c
- AMD Duron(tm) processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
- Soltek motherboard: SL-75DRV
- Another CDROM drive: LG GCR-8520B idereader
- HP7200 Ide burner:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: HP Model: CD-Writer+ 7200 Rev: 3.01
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02

And then I guess this is useful too:
00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8366/A/7 [Apollo KT266/A/333]
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8366/A/7 [Apollo KT266/A/333 AGP]
00:08.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro] (rev 15)

00:0b.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 0a)
00:0b.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! MIDI/Game Port (rev 0a)
00:11.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233A ISA Bridge
00:11.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT8233/A/C/VT8235 PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 06)
00:11.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB (rev 23)
00:11.3 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB (rev 23)

So here's everything I could find. Please let me know what other useful info I may submit. I am not guru like You are, so I need advices what to do.

With best regards,
