Ok, Ive changed my fstab and lilo.conf, and I get this when I try to mount my cd rom drive (its usually marked scd0)
Quote:
[root@Prodigy]# mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom
mount: /dev/scd0 is not a valid block device
[root@Prodigy]# mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
mount: /dev/hdc is not a valid block device

Ill have a look at that site. I tohught I compiled in the CD rom support, but I could be wrong. How can I know if its IDE or SCSI? Its a Toshiba SDR-2102. I dont know if that helps or not. Im running Mandrake 9.1, so Im going to try and upgrade to the 9.2 because of all the theme and kernel issues Im having and see if that helps. Ive been told that the 2.6 kernel and the 9.1 arent that compatible.

EDIT: Thanks for that site. It has some good information on the problems Ive been having with my mouse and QM_MODULES.

Ok, I upgraded to 9.2 and compiled the 2.6.1 kernel, and it does NOTHING!!! I got to boot it and I get the lilo screen, and then black. It sits and does nothing. Anyone else having this problem?

EDIT: Im going back to the 9.1, since the 9.2 is too buggy.

9.2 worked so great awesome for me on my old laptop. When I bought my new one just before Xmas, well the first thing I did was put most of the drive on a linux partition and slapped in 9.2

Then I ran into problems, but a bit of surfing tells me that ANY distro would have given me a hard time because of this machine (Presario 2110)...but it was still hell to get it running.

Now...I also upgraded to 2.6.1 and right now I'm using the stock kernel rpm from mandrake. I tried for several days to recompile on from source and was never able to do it.
It was incredibly frustrating.

However, I have to say that 2.6.1 did give me several performance and other improvements.

Where did you get the Mdk source kernel from? I try to use those whenever possible, since they have alot of stuff built into them.

I let myself drop into this post since I encouter several simila rissue when using the 2.6.2

OK, I use the woody and I compiled the module-init-tools (for /sbin) and the 2.6.2 sources.

1./ Is that realy all I have to do?
2./ Is the kernel source config able to port my old .config?
(I copied but seems some driver are not ticked...so I did manually)

Then I understood I had to upgrade the modprobe.conf, what I did.

3./ Then I have following issue:
- no wheel available on my usb mouse anymore
- cd-writer/reader not detected (ok --> no SCSI-IDE needed anymore..I'll try)
- no dhcp available (/usr/var/dhcpclient/pid needed and not found?!)
- lsmod shows...nothing (but no QM_MODULES error ) where I used to see different modules in 2.4.23
- both eth0 and eth1 (modules compiled in kernel) are not present !
(How can I make sure that the porting of ./generate-modprobe did work well?)


This is a bit disapointing since I really already love the 2.6.2 (whoah what a blast at boot!)

Hope you can gimme hints...

Sorry to intrude!

Regards,
Ben
