question about scsi emulation ,etc ...


Hi. I compiled my new kernel and it seems to work fine. However, i have a few questions. First, when I compile the kernel and am configuring it, under 'scsi support ---->' in the menuconfig, is that submenu for items related to 'real' scsi disks or scsi emulation? I have a regular cd-rw. Do I have to have scsi support or just emulation?

2nd question is>
In rc.modules the line 'modprobe ide-scsi' used to load the 'ide-scsi'
module in my 2.4.18 kernel. I no longer have that module in my new kernel as I may have built it in. Is it better to build this as a module and it so where would I find it in the menuconfig?

thanks

Under block devices, scsi emulation is ide-scsi module. So you can do whichever you'd like with that. As for scsi support, yes, you at least need scsi cdrom support, I also include:
scsi disk support (for my USB Mass Storage devices such as Memory Sticks)
and probe all luns, this was just to play it safe...



Cool

1) Yes
2) Try it and see, you can always re-compile

thanks guys ... just found the module in menuconfig and recompiled
and now it loads ide-scsi module.

Is it a good idea to do the 'append=hdc=ide-scsi' thing in lilo?
I have never had to do it before and if I can remember when I had
burnt a cd-r in the past my drive has always worked.

thanks again

Is hdc your cdburner? I have 2 cd drives. I use scsi emulation on both. One is a DVD drive, the other is my CDRW. The reason I use scsi on both is for cd copying some apps require both to be scsi devices. Since it doesn't hurt anything using scsi on my dvd drive, I do it anyway. So my hdc and hdd are both actually scd1 and scd0.



Cool

How do I find out what letter my cd-rw is? I only have a cd-rw and no other drives save for a floppy.

thanks

That'd sure be nice (referring to the edited drive

You can either plug through dmesg, or cdrecord -scanbus or blindly guess

Also, check /var/log/messages
and cat /proc/scsi/scsi

Cool
