RH9 &9.0 Benq CDRW 4012a IDE + IDE CDROM - Install - how to
A hardware installation issue :
Red Hat 9 (want to do this under Red Hat 8.0 as well)
HDA Hard disk
HDC IDE Benq 4012a CDRW (master secondary IDE)
HDD IDE CDROM 36x Diamond (slave secondary IDE)
RH 9 thinks the CDRW is an ide CDROM called 40x12x
Both drives read CDs ok
How do I insall the CDRW ?
I have looked at
I understand that the IDE CDRW has to emulate a SCSI device inorder to work.
But after looking atht above documetns Im still completely lost.
Would someone specify a dumbed down step by step procedure
to help me get the CDROM and CDRW to work and co-exist ?
my cdrw works fine without scsi-emulation, but xcdroast keeps on telling me to use it.
however, mine show up as:
hdb: ATAPI 40X DVD-ROM drive, 512kB Cache, UDMA(33)
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
hdc: ATAPI 52X CD-ROM CD-R/RW CD-MRW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
hdd: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2000kB Cache, UDMA(33)
in dmesg, so that might be why mine work and yours doesnt.
i think that all you need to do for scsi emulation is to enable it in your kernel configuration , and start your kernel with "hdc=ide-scsi". in lilo, you add the line append="hdc=ide-scsi" i think.
what happens if you try to write a cd when it thinks its not a cdrw drive?
I ran dmesg in a terminal session
hdc: ATAPI 48x CD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, DMA
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision 3.12
hdd: ATAPI 36x CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache DDMA(33)
cdrom: This disc doesnt have any tacks that I recognise ! <--- ****** Any idea what this means ?
udf registering file system
cdrom open failed
cdrom open failed
UDF-fs: No VRS found <----
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
modprobe: Cant Locate modile char-major-97 <----
So it knows that the CRDRW is there.
When I access Gnome System Tools/ More system tootls / CD writer
(aka GnomeToaster 1.0 Beta 8)
FIle / change recorder
There are no CD RW devices to select.
When I select burn all it will allow is the creation of a CD file image on the hard disk.
I can see that the Iniform CD-ROM driver Revision differs from yous.
What do you make of the error messsages (marked)
Both drives read CDs ok as far as I can tell.
You think that I should update /etc/lilo.conf.anaconda.conff ?
A great document !
Im using grub loader
Appended to end of kernel line (after /) hdc=ide-scsi
Re-booted the machine
In a terminal session
Can now see CDRW drive identified as as a SCSI type device
Selected the drive in preferences
Ran a trial cd burn and the thing actually works !!!!!
The hdd cd-rom works ok.
system log error messages - see previous my posting
CD record is version 2.0
when i execute cd-record -scanbus
and burn using GnomeToaster
I get a warning message :
cdrecord Warning using inofficial libscg transport code version (schily - Red Hat-scsi-linux-sg.c-1.75-RH (#)scs-=linu-sg.c 1.75 02/10/21 Copyright 1997 J. Schilling)
What is all this abont ???
I used GnomeToaster to create a multisession CD
It shows Datatracks #1 #2 #3 #4
Butnwhen I mount the CD all I can see are the files from Datatrack #1
The CD RW and my CDROM drive are both definitely multisession compatible.
Any ideas ?
This question is still plagueing me.
No matter how I try gnomeToaster will not
create a multisession CD !
Im running the current version of CDRECORD
which kernel are you using - try upgrading to 2.6.x. i think if u do that then you wont need scsi emulation, and it might fix ur other problem
