Question DVD Burner setup on Slackware 12.1 Dell Latitude D630


Hey,

I have been using linux for quite sometime and I have never really had a problem setting up my burner, till now.

I recently purchased a Dell Latitude d630 laptop with a DVD +/- Burner


I have tried to do what I normally do and that is pass in the param's into lilo with the typical append=hda=ide-scsi

However when I reboot with the settings, it still just detects as /dev/hda rather than a scsi drive?

here is my lilo file

Quote:
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
# Append any additional kernel parameters:
append="hda=ide-scsi"
boot = /dev/sda
...

here is what comes up with dmesg
Quote:
root:~# dmesg | grep hda
Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=Linux ro root=802 hda=ide-scsi
ide_setup: hda=ide-scsi
ide0: BM-DMA at 0x6fa0-0x6fa7, BIOS settings: hda: DMA, hdb: pio
hda: TSSTcorp DVD+/-RW TS-L632H, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hda: host max PIO4 wanted PIO255(auto-tune) selected PIO4
hda: UDMA/33 mode selected

and also
Quote:
root:~# dmesg | grep scsi
Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=Linux ro root=802 hda=ide-scsi
ide_setup: hda=ide-scsi
scsi: <fdomain> Detection failed (no card)
iscsi: registered transport (qla4xxx)
scsi2 : ata_piix
scsi3 : ata_piix
scsi 2:0:0:0: Direct-Access ATA FUJITSU MHW2120B 0085 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0


any thoughts or suggestions?

btw my system config:
Quote:
root:~# uname -a
Linux Sabretooth 2.6.24.5-smp #2 SMP Wed Apr 30 13:41:38 CDT 2008 i686 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

Beginning with Linux 2.6 ide-scsi is deprecated. You should switch over to using your DVD as a straight IDE device. In lilo remove the append="hda=ide-scsi" statement and address your DVD as /dev/hda instead of 0.0.0.

oh.......should keep up to date with this stuff.....with that being said then what is there to setup with the burner?

Is there something else that needs to be done as k3b doesn't detect any burners on the system?

You need a line for the DVD in /etc/fstab. Make the change to native IDE and then see if k3b can find /dev/hda.
