fdisk -l shows all my IDE devices (I have four 320 GB hard drives in an LVM), I can't see anything about SATA devices there.

I have tried booting with an old Ubuntu 5.10 Live CD I had, and it worked perfect, could mount/read CDs, etc. I ended up taking my mass of IDE drives out, installing Slack, putting them back in, but it still doesn't recognize the drive after installation.

Now it's more of a matter of "I can't get slack to recognize my SATA CD-RW", Should I repost in the main forum? I'm thinking it has something to do with the kernel, and something needing to be compiled.

Edit: My bad, fdisk -l shows SATA and IDE drives after install, it went by so fast that I didn't see them all.
Hi,

To help diagnose , you should post any requested output. What was the output for the fdisk -l. You could redirect the output to a file that could then be posted.
Code:
#uname -a >myuname.txt
#dmesg |grep hd >myhd.txt
#dmesg |grep sr >mysr.txt
#fdisk -l >myfdisk.txt
#lspci -vv >mylspci
#lsmod >mylsmod
Please post the output.

I am running Slackware 12 (minimally modified kernel) and have a similar problem, where for instance cdrecord -scanbus sees my two SATA hard disks on scsibus 0 and 1; and my DVD writer on scsibus 2.
However, k3b does not see it - and /dev has no valid entry for it. There is a possible contender, /dev/sg2, which has the owner root:cdrom - but that is not a valid block device (type 21 2).
/var/log/messages shows it being detected
kernel: scsi3 : ata_piix
kernel: scsi 2:0:0:0: CDROM etc etc
but nothing more is done with it.

Hi,

You are using the 2.4 kernel so you can pass the append="hda = ide-scsi hdb = ide-scsi" in your lilo.conf or pass at boot time.

The 2.4 uses the ide-scsi and 2.6 uses the ide-cd modules. Since you lsmod shows the 'ide-scsi' is loaded. Your cd seems to be recognized as /dev/hda and /dev/hdb.
