burner probs


i have slack 9 installed and i need to burn some cd images. i have a sony cd burner. i run "cdrecord -scanbus" to see what my sony burner is and i get this.... "Permission Denied. Cannot open '/dev/sg0'. Cannot open SCSI driver."

so, i log into root and i get "No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

i dont know what to do, but in all other linux distros i've tried its worked perfectly... never even had to touch any of the burner settings.. thanks for helping

donīt know perhaps it will help.
i had the same problem so try to find do you have scsi (go to kde configure center-> information -> scsi) if you have it skip this part
try to find burners connection is it hdb hdd hdc .......... (red info then slack boots ) later reconfigure lilo in console write su later yours root pasword after that liloconfig reconfigure it and then you will be asked for scsi (f*** forget but there will be example just just make shore is it hda hdb ........) reboot and check for scsi in kde control center

I suggest you to use K3b for cd burning, but after install write in console as root
modprobe ide-scsi

Thats all, hope this help, sorry for English

These instructions are written for Slack v8.1 but they worked perfectly for me under Slack v9.0

That's great Fatal 3rr0r, I'm glad the link was useful. I likewise was running into some trouble initially when setting up my rig but found that page and it did the trick.

By the way as I expect you discovered by checking out the links fancypiper cited, TLDP is an awesome thing, and at least as far as I'm concerned is the "end all be all" Linux reference resource. http://www.tldp.org/ -- J.W.

Thumbs up coolness

I was having similar problems, and clicked on the above link, but I still had problems, then I remembered...I had slack install lilo on the MBR of hda.

My setup is:

hda2 slack9
hda4 rescue (just a clean slack9 install that I only us if I have a problem)
hdb7 slack8

Aside from the funky partitioning, it all works. However, Just editing the /etc/lilo.conf doesn't work on mine because the system uses the lilo installed on the MBR. I had boot into my rescue partition and run liloconfig there, because for some reason, running it from slack9 didn't work.

Anyway, thanks for the link. It helped a lot and I'm blanking a CDRW right now.
