    Mandrake 9.2 may kill LG CD-ROM drives

    As reported yesterday on Slashdot, MandrakeSoft has found a serious problem when using Mandrake Linux 9.2 with some models of CD-Rom drives made by LG Electronics. Updated


    The errata page describes the following scenario: "Installing 9.2 and being told unable to install the base system and subsequent reboot reveals that CD-ROM is physically dead."

    MandrakeSoft also says that as of yet, there is no workaround for the problem.

    That is very odd isn't it...The 9.2 actually kills the drives firmware somehow, from what I have heard.
