CD mount problem in FC5


Hi.
When I installed FC5, everything worked. After I did a package update, my ide cdrom still worked but my scsi cd burner won't mount. What happened? How do I fix it? Come to think of it, my floppy drive doesn't work now either.
I installed hardware browser and everthing shows up there.
Thanks!

Mr./Mrs. saunier

I am french Canadian, I know that name. Bien venue.
You may notice my french spelling is out of whack, but I am a superior vocal french speaker. I am a little puzzled here?. The average home computer with scsi and IDE combo motherboards usually has the HDD on the scsi, and the disk drives on the IDE channel. Normally, the two removable disk drives will be connected through the same ribbon cable (IDE), and the hard drive (HDD), is on the scsi channel, (narrow cable). Did you stick your fingers in the box? I'm talking about the "Metal" box.
As for the floppy,???

Maybe, us frenchman have a common problem, RYE.

hmmmmmmmmm..........?
Set the Rye aside, the french Saulnier is spelled a little different.

This probably isn't a normal home computer. It's something I put together mostly out of spare parts. I'm thinking I might just reinstall and see if I can get through the updates with everything still working.
Thanks

Yah,

Kind of strange, before the last kernel update for Fedora 6, when I installed kmod-nvidia and X11 .drv for my graphics card, half of the main menu dissappeared in my root account. Sort of the same deal, allot of applications I could not access, Administration section, system section, gone. But with the last kernel update 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 and matching nvidia packages, everything's cool.

You can install that kernel also but I don't think it comes in a .rpm for FC5, it's a tarball, so a little more work involved.

You can also do a process of elimination to find which update causes this problem. Using the GUI software updater through main menu/system/software updater (FC6), remove all check marks and just apply one or two updates at a time, re-boot and see when this happens again.
Then just remove the bad apple, and re-install original off disk(s).
Then, in a month or so go back through the GUI software updater and highlight the package, click on details to see if it has been re-updated by keeping track of the extraversion number.
