Question kernel panics please help


yeah well i just installed linux .... i have a cd burner
that i want to work and the kernel arguments
at start are "hd=ide-scsi" and when trys to boot
with this i get a kernel panic ... something about
not syncing .... and it will not go any further.
but if i edit this and take out the scsi part it boots
fine ... is there any way that i could leave this in
and still bee able to boot? or anyway that one
could get around this and still burn a cd?

thank you in advance for your reply,
valleyman

Shouldn't that be hdN=ide-scsi where N is a, b, c, ,d etc?

Welcome to LinuxQuestions BTW.

cheers

Thumbs up

The simple ones are often the hardest to spot!

Not that I've ever wasted days of my time on similar problems of my own, honest

Isn't the parameter you want infact hdd=scsi, just looked at the comments in the kernel source.

cheers

I've got the same error in the boot.

That was a very fortunate post, valleyman.
