2.4.21 is Out
 
A lot of stuff has been changed/added in this. So go to www.kernel.org and get it.

Well 2.4.21 got me working firewire AND UDMA IDE .
The 'stock' RH kernel wasn't finding any devices on the firewire..

Only cdrdao locks the machine. Blinking keyboard lights, have to reboot back to the stock kernal to burn CDs.

Ah, compiling it now, finally the ability to use all of my boards potential, long overdue.

Except I can lock the machine burning CD's :-(

Using kdb and a serial cable I have found it's some sort of fault in the IDE driver.

It also does not occur if I don't load X, (nvidia drivers).

Some how the nvidia display kernel module is exposing a bug in the IDE driver.

You wouldn't happen to be using a RedHat based machine would you?

Except for the kernel it's RH9.

I got a serial console and kdb working, I know exactly were the system goes down, some where in the dark depths of the IDE code, only I don't know what to do, the kernal is 'tainted' by nVidia's display driver, and when it isn't running (i.e text console only), the system doesn't panic, so I don't have a non tainted crash to feed to the kernel list.

What's the deal with Redhat (eluded to above)? I have the same problems w/ blinking keyboard lights when doing CD or DVD burning.

It does burn the CD / DVD properly, then locks while fixating. The disc's are usable, but I have to reboot (pain).

I've got an ASUS nForce2 board with a Ti4200 graphics card, running the latest nVidia drivers (both graphical and nForce) -- but am using the stock RH9 installed kernel.

Any ideas on the locking up?

RH9 lockups during CD burning
 
Remove the magicdev RPM, which pops up windows when you insert a CDROM, and your lockups will likely go away.
