Cosmo & Tink. I was curious since I compiled my first kernel (2.6.7) for my new distro (slackware 10). I made an unsuccesful attempt to upgrade kernel on RH 9 a few days back and eventually I had to reinstall RH 9. Kernel compile on slackware was breeze. I dont know why so but I guess with RH 9 I had to do install mod-init-tools and modutils rpm. I must have screwed up somewhere.
Long story short, I watched the messages while booting the new kernel. I have NEC CDR and Memorex DVD +/- RW drive but the kernel spewed ATAPI CDROM for both. I havent tried to burn anything on it yet (it was already 2 AM last night...besides I was way too happy with a successful kernel compile to bother about cd burning
). I have configured scsi-support for ide-drives in kernel compile.
Anyway, I was just curious. Thanks once again.
