Losing secondary IDE after a shutdown

Losing secondary IDE after a shutdown

Post by Bill Oswal » Sat, 01 Mar 1997 04:00:00

I run redhat 4.0 and win95 on a tyan tomcat II motherboard. My CD is
connected to the secondary IDE as master. If I issue a shutdown -t now
-r and let the machine boot into windows I no longer can see my CD. Win
95 shows the secondary IDE as not working. If I issue a shutdown -t now
-h then press the reset button and boot into win95 all is well. Has
anyone else seen this?

Also, I have asked this before and received several answers but no one
has answered the basic question. Can I attach my CD to my soundblasters
IDE port (third IDE). I know I can pass options to lilo (I use loadlin)
the point is, can I attach the CD to the soundblaster and install RH 4.1
for example. Was there a way for me to install 4.0 cd with the above

1. Taskbar "shutdown" button lost its options for shutdown

An other one of the KDE weirdies ...

The "shutdown / disconnect" button in my KDE 222 Mandrake (8.2 with
2.4.18 kernel) taskbar has lost its options effects ...
Options are : disconnect, shutdown, restart

Whatever the option, now, it wont shut or restart. it just disconnect
and brings me to the desktop login screen.

Any idea ?

BTW : has anyone come across this one : I have 4 desktops, each with a
specific background. When I launch Kwintv (0.8.11, compiled by ASP,
found on rpmfind), the backgrounds are not changed anymore when
switching desktop ...
