On Monday 21 Jul 2008 we published a security announcement regarding the
release of a Linux kernel update for SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 Service
This advisory is here:
Unfortunately this kernel update introduces a critical regression in
handling of IDE CD-ROMs on little endian processor architectures (Intel
x86, AMD64 and Intel EM64T aka x86_64, and Intel Itanium aka ia64),
causing IDE-CDROMs not to work at all and even crash the machine.
Due to this problem we have removed the kernel update for the
three affected architectures from the update servers and from
Please note that this IDE-CDROM regression is not a security problem in
itself, but since the removal of the update disables available security
fixes it is announced here.
A Novell TID is also available, TID 7001037:
We are working on publishing fixed kernel packages within this week.
