I R LINUX
I'll first give a little background on the computer/install.
The system is command line only. Does not have <insert favorite GUI here> loaded on it at all.
System is solely a web server and does nothing else other than host a website.
I currently have a Yamaha 16x10x40 cdrw installed in the computer. Previously had a generic 50x cdrom installed.
I have been scouring search engines for the past week trying to find commands or solutions or anything tha relates to UDF(the format directCD uses) and SuSE 8.2 installations.
Apparantly some people said that UDF wasnt installed and you had to rebuild the kernel with the module installed into it which isnt the case, its built in with the CD ROM im assuming.
Where im currently at....
I have enabled IDE-SCSI emulation for the cdrom.
I can mount normal CDs(masters) burned CDs that are closed or open session using the Joliet iso9660 format
I have remapped the links for the cdrom mount directory to reflect the new ide-scsi emulation (sr0 instead of hda)
I have even added "modprobe ide-scsi" to the boot.local file to see if that would help.
I have also turned off DMA support for the drive(saw that worked for someone) but again no such luck for me.
I've tried forcing the mount type by going mount -t udf -o or /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom and all it does is report back an error saying incorrect file system type, bad super block or bad etc etc etc. So its not liking the format of the DirectCD Created/Formatted CD.
I even tried switching the CDROM drive with a CDRW to see if that would work which unfortunately yeilds the exact same result.
checking dmesg(i still dont know what that means) shows two errors when trying to mount the cd, 0x50 and 0x51 saying that it had errors with reading/seeking/finding the correct filesystem.
I even tried to contact tech support (after being routed to the UK from Canada) and they were hopelessly scouring through a database of support records and were being totally unhelpful for this problem(tech guy didnt even know what the bootloader screen looked like thats how bad it was).
Anyone have an idea on how to get UDF format CDs mounted?
Any help is appreciated.
