Why is "SAMSUNG CD-ROM SC-148F" blacklisted?

Postby Alexander E. Patrakov » Fri, 10 Dec 2004 01:10:08 GMT

The "SAMSUNG CD-ROM SC-148F" drive is listed in drive_blacklist in
ide-dma.c. However, this drive worked well with DMA enabled with earlier
kernel versions (<= where the "via82cxxx" driver did not look at
this blacklist. So the question: what was the reason for blacklisting this
(apparently working) drive? Is it still valid?

Details on my CD-ROM drive are pasted below.

4.Samsung boot from CD-ROM?


I'm a newbie to Linux and just got a bunch of bootable Linux distro CD's 
that I want to try on my Samsung Sens 810 notebook.  Problem is, I may not 
be able to boot from CD-ROM?  I checked the system Bios (Phoenix NoteBios 
4.0) and the only boot options I've got are A: (Floppy) and C: (hard drive). 
On this particular model, the CD and floppy share a drive port, so I can't 
have both in the computer at the same time, and they're not hot-swappable.

Any ideas?  Any tricks to force the system to boot from CD-ROM?
