My sata cdrom shows up as a ide device when I switch to slackware...

sda: sda1 sda2 < sda5 sda6 sda7 sda8 sda9 sda10 sda11 >
sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sda

My hard drive shows... As far as the kernel driver atiixp, inteliixp, and libata....

What am I missing? I write down shit when I change distros. I am running a 2.6.15 kernel... If it worked in SuSE it will work in slackware...

Thanks,
Dave


Thanks

This is read right from the device itself. One retailer website specs shows this to be a USB device which I doubt the other shows IDE. Need some additional information on your PC hardware specifications lke make/model etc. What is not exactly working?

Probably SUSE used the old way by emulating the CD recordable drive as SCSI. Try mounting /dev/hdc.

I would also agree with Electro that SuSE might of configured the drive for SCSI emulation. With 2.6 kernels here is no need for SCSI emulation with IDE devices.

BTW in addition to SATA, USB and Firewire devices also use SCSI protocols and are assigned a SCSI device ID.

It's weird... I had a ubuntu live cd, so I stuck it in to see what the dmesg output would be. scsi-mmc something or other. I'd paste it, but I aint at my hooch. I switched to scsi emulation, it works but I still cant help to wonder why the small difference..
