kernel 2.6.3: cdrom isn't running....also not as /dev/hdc ...RH9


Hello

I've compiled my kernel 2.6.3 on a Medion-notebook and everything runs well, excepted my cdrom-drive

it's a cd-rw-drive and it ran always well with the 2.4-kernel from redhat9. when I enter
Code:
fdisk -l
, I just see my harddrive and with
Code:
dmesg
, the cd-writer isn't shown as well, but a CD is placed in the drive. I just followed a good howto and my usb-devices, iptables, acpi run well with the 2.6.3, ....but my cd doesn't want to..
maybe, anyone has got an advise for me, what I've got to do?
I attached my config-file of my kernel below....
thanks and regards
pablo

the config-file

Does it show up in /proc/ide?

Hard to help you without knowing the
distro, too ...

Chances are that the writer was access
via ide-scsi in 2.4 kernels, but that method
is not used for 2.6 ... so the link in
/dev/cdrom
probably needs to point to
/dev/hdc rather than /dev/scd0


Cheers,
Tink

I wrote that I'm using redhat9

I activated the scsi-driver for cdrom as well.... what else have I got to activate???
dev/hdc isn't shown when i enter "dmesg" or "fdisk -l"....

No you didn't - you said

which doesn't say whether you're still
using RH or not, neither does your personal
info or your signature.

It certainly wouldn't in fdisk ...

ls -l /proc/ide
?

ok, sorry...you're right...I said that I used redhat9,....my mistake....that's the ouput of your command:
Code:
 ls -l /proc/ide
insgesamt 2
-r--r--r--    1 root     root            0 24. Feb 23:40 drivers
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            8 24. Feb 23:40 hda -> ide0/hda
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            8 24. Feb 23:40 hdc -> ide1/hdc
dr-xr-xr-x    3 root     root            0 24. Feb 23:40 ide0
dr-xr-xr-x    3 root     root            0 24. Feb 23:40 ide1
what doas that mean? That my kernel didn't load the cdrom-driver?
thanks and regards

That means that it's still an IDE-device ...

try
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom

Code:
[root@mobile_abc1_1 mnt]# mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
mount: /dev/hdc ist kein gültiges blockorientiertes Gerät
that means that /dev/hdc isn't a block-oriented device.....hmm
