Slack 9.1: IDE-SCSI not working


Hey all,

I've been trying to get SCSI emulation working for my IDE CD-RW device on Slack 9.1 with the stock 2.4.22 kernel. Right now, it gets detected as /dev/hda.
I've looked through a lot of previous posts on this matter, but still haven't found a solution to my problem.

Here's what everything looks like at the moment:

Looks like the ide-scsi module has been loaded properly at startup.

I have added the append="hda=ide-scsi" line to lilo.conf, and ran /sbin/lilo to apply the changes

Modified /etc/fstab to mount /dev/scd0 instead of /dev/hda

With all that done, it still refuses to work. /dev/hda is still being recognized as the CDRW drive rather than /dev/scd0 which is should be with scsi emulation.
Basically, because of that, I can't use cdrecord to burn anything.

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'.
As I said earlier, /dev/hda is still recognized, but /dev/scd0 is not.
Quote:

mount: /dev/scd0 is not a valid block device
# mount /dev/hda /mnt/cdrom/
mount: block device /dev/hda is write-protected, mounting read-only
Any ideas on how I can get this to work?
Thanks in advance!

Ya im getting the exact some problem with my cd-r drive. But its seeing it as /dev/hdd i also have a digital camera which is mounted /dev/sda1. Instead of trying to mount the cd-r as /dev/scd0 i tried /dev/sda. And nothing working. hmm i installed slackware with the burner because its faster than my normal cdrom drive so right now its mount as /dev/cdrom. Please Help me out with this i recently download gtoaster and i need scsi emulation inorder to use this program. Before i used xcdroaster, but i cant convert from mp3 to wav to make a audio cd. Its very confusing program to use i know other people will disagree with me but thats my option. Anyways Please give US a hand with this. I have ide-scsi loaded as well in my lsmod and i added modprobe ide-scsi to /etc/rc.d/rc.local so it will start up everytime. But still not working.. Thanx for your Help

This is a guess for the block device: - try

/dev/sr0

(sr0= sr"zero")

ie

/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user,ro 0 0

scd0 vs sr0

My system is configured with DVDreader and CDRW drives under ide-scsi...

They happend to be created as /dev/sr0 and sr1 !!!

don't know why I haven't got the scdx device!!!?????

BTW, You put your CDRW drive on primary/master bus?!!!

Re: Slack 9.1: IDE-SCSI not working

[QUOTE]Originally posted by NetRyder

[QUOTE]

That's enabling SCSI emulation on your primary master.

You need to know where your cd burner is hooked up. For example,
If it's your primary slave, it would read:
append="hdb=ide-scsi"

Secondary master would be:
append="hdc=ide-scsi"

Secondary slave would be:
append="hdd=ide-scsi"

Ok YAYAYYA i got it working. This is what i did so you know how to get it working (i never tested it yet but im pretty sure it will work) ok make sure u add append like this and change accoradinaly?? lol ok here it is:

Quote:
# LILO configuration file

# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
append="hdd=ide-scsi"
boot = /dev/hda
message = /boot/boot_message.txt
prompt
timeout = 1200
# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
change-rules
reset
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
vga = 773
Then i rebooted checked dmesg reliezed it worked cuz it said ide-scsi emulation for hdd at sr0 so then i went into my fstab and changed apporitaltly. Good Luck i hope it works for u!!1

NetRyder, I have noticed that the append line in your lilo.conf file has to be in the right place or it doesn't work. You could try putting it the same place as Matt3333 has it. That is where I've always put it to get it to work, right before the boot line.

You could also burn CD's using the drive as an ATAPI device. You just need to tell cdrecord to look for it, since it does not scan for these devices by default:

cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI:

and then to burn a disc:

cdrecord -v -eject dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 cdimage.iso

using of course whatever device address it actually turns out to be and including the options you need for the type of disc you are actually burning.

ORIGINALY FROM J.W. in another thread. Worked for me with no problem:



1. Verify this line is in /etc/lilo.conf: append="hdc=ide-scsi"

2. Verify this line is in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and is uncommented: /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi

3. As root, run: cat /proc/scsi/scsi (The CD-RW should be listed)

4. Edit /etc/fstab, adding this line: /dev/scd0 /mnt/scd0 iso9660 noauto,users 0 0

5. Run the following as root:
mkdir /mnt/scd0
cd /dev
rm cdrom
ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom
chmod 666 /dev/scd0

6. To make various CD programs available universally, run:
chmod u+s /usr/bin/cdrecord
chmod u+s /usr/bin/mkisofs

Thanks so much for all the responses, everyone!

I'm out of town right now, so I'm not able to access the internet regularly. Sorry I couldn't check your responses and respond earlier. I'll try everything that has been suggested so far and post my results the next time I get a chance to connect.

And yes, the CD-RW drive is connected as the primary master. Don't ask me why. It's a Dell laptop...Inspiron 5100, so yes...it should be /dev/hda

Alright, I gave it a shot yesterday, and it's all working now.
The problem was the position of the "append" line in the lilo.conf file. I just had to place it before the "boot" line, and run /sbin/lilo

Thanks a lot for the help and suggestions, everyone.

Hey guys, I successfully set up scsi emulation a few months ago so I could get my CD burner to work. I also set up my normal CD ROM with scsi emulation so I could make direct copies of CD's without temp ISO files. I had one problem, though. Once it was set up with scsi emulation, I could no longer play audio CD's. I tried all sorts of different players and wierd mount-ing commands, but to no avail. I had the "append" line at the end of my lilo.conf file, and it worked. (That's where the help file on justlinux.com said to put it ) I've moved the line to the spot right before the "boot" line is in lilo.conf, but I was wondering, is this how I should fix my problem? Also, is this the correct way to use scsi emulation for two devices: append = "hdd=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi" . Thanks in advance! PS. Haven't rebooted yet, don't know if it worked or not. Too lazy to reboot.

Okay, not sure what I've done... but it works! ...In Gnome-CD. I was kinda hoping to get it working with XMMS, but I guess I'll live. Kinda disappointed, though. Can anyone tell me how I might set up either my box or XMMS to recognize audio CD's? I appreciate all the help everyone gave the original poster ... Thanks! it helped me too! Now just imagine how many people you've affected with all of your other posts ...

Okay, I think I know what it might have been... links! I "ln -s"'ed /dev/scd0 to dev/cdrom. Works in Gnome-CD, still no go in XMMS, although I think it might have to be the CDplayer plugin for XMMS and the directory where it looks. I'll keep working on it, but help would be greatly appreciated.
