Question X-CD-Roast


(OS RH7.3)

After i upgraded to RH7.3, X-roast has both my read and my burn cd-rom listed as the same drive. I tried the drop down menu and it dosn't have the other drive listed. How can I fix this. I presume I need to edit some config file but which one?

Include scsi emulation for your regular cdrom by appending appropriate entry in GRUB/LILO
append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"
you should find out real devices for your drives

**dumb look # 101** huh? I know what LILO is (linux loader) but I have NEVER jacked with it. I need a bit more detail to fix this.

Thanks

Ok, just post the contents of /etc/lilo.conf file here, we'll see what we can do.
Plus make up a layout of your drives -
How is cdrom set - primary/secondary master/slave,
how's cd-burner set - primary/secondary master/slave ?

IDE secondary master ATAPI CD Rom --- reader
IDE secondary slave Lite-on LTR-161.2B ---burner

X-Roast has the Lite-on listed as both reader and burner

Is that it? thanks a bunch.

how about trying decent front end program like eroaster? some programs will only look for drives on scsi (or scsi emulation) for reading, which is a bit dumb really IMHO, so you might need to emulate the reader drive as well as the burner (which you can see is already emulated.. yes?)

So I need to change the append to: append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

and that will emulate both drives? hdc being the reader and hdd being the writer?

So help me understand this a little, would the floppy be hda and the hard drive be hdb ?

so in lilo.conf by the append="hdd=ide-scsi" make it look exactly like
append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"
And rerun lilo
/sbin/lilo

Neo, thank you very much ! that did it. but it created one other problem, my icon short cut doesn't work right for the burner cdrom now it says:

Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

No it's a bad symlink. Your /dev/cdrom is a symlink to the actual device. Once you made it scsi, you no longer have /dev/hdc or similar. You will now have to make a new symlink to your new scsi device:
ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom

That is unless it's scd1 depending on which one is your burner and which is your actual cdrom. If it's scd1 replace scd0 with scd1 in the above line, and so on (so if it's /dev/sr0 then replace scd0 with sr0 and so on).

Cool
