Description From 2008-01-05 13:33:26
(I don't know which component in Bugzilla is the most appropriate for this bug.)

rsync.altlinux.org::ALTLinux/4.0/Desktop/4.0.2/iso/live.iso

At a certain stage of booting, a message (ncurses-like) appears saying that
there is no cdrom and asking to choose a module to load. I select ata_piix. Then
it continues successfully.

An unexperienced user couldn't do that.

Also, finding the module in the list is burdensome: the list is huge and not
alphabetically sorted. Perhaps, grouping into sublists according to the
categories of the modules could make it better.

My computer:

Should be "Desktop 4.0" I believe (except that it's missing currently)...
------- Comment #2 From 2008-01-27 23:43:58 -------
Probably the same problem as Bug #12033 (the ahci module is not loaded
automatically too).

Unlike Desktop-4.0.2, Server-4.0.1 correctly loads ata_piix, in Rescue and in
Installation modes.

В 4.0/branch исправления не будут вноситься уже технически (заглушена очередь
на сборку), поэтому прошу ошибки, актуальные для sisyphus/p7/t7, перевесить на
текущие ветки или сизиф.
