Make sure Ide-scsi emulation module is up by "lsmod"
If this module is buuilt in try "dmesg".... at some point you should find something like
ide-scsi emulation for attached device, bla..bla..bla...
sr0 (scd0) will be the name of the device when ide-scsi emulation is active.
Hope this helps
Yes, that's how I've done it in the past. Just write another line in grub.conf underneath
where your Linux booting section is, making it identical except to skip the hdx=ide-scsi
But make sure you update your /etc/fstab for the mount points (They will be IDE mount
points now.), e.g.,/mnt/hdx, and create the mount point directories.
Check the occourences of
in the scsi section of your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules are uncommented.
This will load the scsi removable and generic modules at boot.
Once you have those modules loaded scsi emulation should work.
Where is your DVD drive on your system (primary master ..... secondary slave ????)
Hope this helps
I have a similar issue with this in my Slackware 10.1 install. I decided, for now, to stick with 2.4.
I see that my cd burner is listed as /dev/sr0 according to K3b, what should I add for a line in my fstab file?
Should I be adding a line for /dev/sr0, or replacing it for the /dev/cdrom line?
Here is the line for /dev/cdrom:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
anything else I need to do? Permissions for the /mnt/whatever/ dir?
Just double checking for any "gotchas".
When I had it working I remember adding an fstab line for /dev/sg0 as well (sg0 and sr0 both represent the scsi emulated device), but I don't know if it's necessary since you're only mounting sr0 when you want to use the drive.
yeah, fstab will have to be modded for you're scsi device, so it'll have to be
/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom auto **users**,ro 0 0
Give those a shot, it worked for me the first time around, so I know it's possible. Post back here if you have any problems.
yeah, looks like you are in the same boat that I was in too . I was only able to get out of it by updating to 2.6.10 where the scsi emulation is deprecated (dvds burn at 8x in normal dma mode). I might just have to do a little reading up myself
LOL yea tell me about it. Dont really have time right now, but unless I can figure out what is wrong and how to correct it, I might have to mess around with another kernel compile. Then Im sure I will be back again with another no sound no net problem like every other time I tried 2.6.* Dang nforce2.
