Can't find my CD-Burner using K3B in SuSE 9.0


Hi...

I'm trying to configure my K3B to burn CD's.

When I go in Options and then in Devices the only cd-rom found is the normal one.
I saw something about adding support to SCSI in kernel but I don't know which stuff I need to put there... And another thing, I would like also to burn mp3 directly, cos I saw also that only ogg files are supported.

How do I do this two things ?

Thanks a lot

You need to recompile your kernel. Or maybe if you are using the stock Suse kernel just try loading the module:
Code:
modprobe ide-scsi
If this gives you an error then you need to recompile. Make sure you include:
Code:
ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL support -> ATA, IDE and ATAPI block devices -> SCSI emulation support [y] or [m]
SCSI support -> SCSI support [y] or [m]
SCSI support -> SCSI cdrom support [y] or [m]
SCSI support -> SCSI generic support [y] or [m]
Then you need to provide hdx=ide-scsi as a boot time kernel parameter in either lilo or grub .conf where hdx is your burner.

I cant get it working still

i have tried constantly to get this to work

i have suse 9.0

i went into YAST and tried to change grub in the bootloader part but nothing that i append or type in stays

i dont know how to recompile my kernal but i did go to the editor for /etc/sysconfig that has a link to the kernal and i added the code below to the ide devices under dma mode

i really dont understand the complete step by step process to make my k3b work and i would love to know. i have had suse 9.0 for 2 weeks now and i hate the GAIM and I love it because it messes up on me so bad and yet it works for aim. when i log in a million pops says cannot addt his friend and i have to close them all i have gaim .67 and i cannot upgrade to .79 because i dont see a RPM for suse and i have had problems compiling the source myself

Perhaps with a 2.6.x kernel, but I still stipulate you need SCSI emulation in your kernel to burn a cd using an IDE burner with a 2.4.* kernel.
