cdrecord 2.0


Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
./cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
./cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
./cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
bash-2.05b#


I just upgaded my kernel from 2.4.19 to 2.4.20 and it seems the new (and old) cdrecord does not want to find my devices.. any ideas?

Did you compile scsi support in your new kernel ? From those errors that would be the first thing I would check.

What happens if you perform a cdrecord -scanbus ?

Do you have append = "hdc=ide-scsi" or something along those lines in your lilo.conf file ?

Sorry, i should have been more specific.. yes, SCSI support is enabled, but i will double check what options..

my first post is the output of cdrecord -scanbus

and yes i have append= blah blah ide-scsi

i have ide-scsi support enabled in my kernel so i don't have to modprobe ide-scsi and the cdrom's work fine :\

And I assume you are root as well.

Seems like its a problem with cdrecord. Have you tried the full complete path to wherever it is installed at ? I'd probably suggest reinstalling also, cdrecord that is.

Got it..

It was my own silly fault.. I assumed that I had already setup
SCSI CD support in my kernel, but when I double checked, I did not have it setup, so I enabled it and all is well. Thanks for your help!
