Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I got a DVD reader and a cd burner
So to access de DVD reader I just
If i take off the DVD reader, i can mount the cd burner by
So, now, i plugged the two devices.
So when i
It mounts my DVD reader: ok, no prob
It gets more complicated to mount the cd burner
First, it's no more recognised by cdrecord
neoy2k# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01a19 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2003 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord.mmap: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord.mmap: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord.mmap: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
cdrecord.mmap: Also make sure that you have loaded the sg driver and the driver for
cdrecord.mmap: SCSI hardware, eg. ide-scsi if you run IDE/ATAPI drives over
cdrecord.mmap: ide-scsi emulation. Read /usr/share/doc/cdrecord/README.ATAPI.setup!
I try to mount it
neoy2k# mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /cdrom2
mount: Aucun medium trouvé (No medium found)
It's really a stupid question but why doesn't it works?
Ok you should be able to mount the burner using /dev/hdd
but in order to use cdrecord you need to enable ide-scsi emulation, append kernel parameter "hdd=ide-scsi" to grub/lilo config file
After it's enabled you need to mount /dev/sr0 for the burner instead, because its now a scsi device.
under the image= section of your kernel
if there's already something in the append option then add a space and add hdd=ide-scsi
close it with double quotes
don't forget to run lilo again
hope this helps
Hmm... thx. But... the problem seems to come from something else.
I tried DVD master / Recorder Slave - DVD salve / Recorder master
The problem was the same.
I plugged the Recorder single, so it should have worked (it worked before)... and the problem is already the same!
Don't know from what does that problem comes!
The only thing I made before it stops working was setting up iptables...
