virtual cdrom cdemu question


I have cdemu-0.6_beta.tar.bz2. soruce.
done make successfully. done makeinstall successfully.
loaded the module w/ modprobe sucessfully. I can see it with lsmod.
have block devices 0-7 in /dev/cdemu.

However when i try to load a cue file:
cdemu 0 acuefile.cue
I get this error:
[Errno 6] No such device or address: '/dev/cdemu/0'

cdemu -s , for status gives:
Drive Loaded Comment
0: 0 NO_CD_LOADED
1: 0 NO_CD_LOADED
2: 0 NO_CD_LOADED
3: 0 NO_CD_LOADED
4: 0 NO_CD_LOADED
5: 0 NO_CD_LOADED
6: 0 NO_CD_LOADED
7: 0 NO_CD_LOADED


So why is sayinhg /dev/cdemu/0 is no such device or addr when i do have
0-7 listed in the /dev/cdemu directory..

I'm using SJDS with linux kernel 2.4.19-4GB

any help will be appreciated.

Might be easier to convert the bin/cue to an iso file, then mount that with the command:

mount -o loop -t is09660 file.iso /mnt

Check out Binchunker.

Enjoy!

amen. I don't know what a purpose would be for a "cd-emu" program when mount does the same thing. Unless you didnt't have the loopback device compiled into the kernel. If you've ever been crapped out by init you know what i mean

There are a number of fixes in the CVS release. You might try that. Also, one of the people on the dev list suggested running depmod -ae after doing the make install. I had problems with the 0.6 beta but everything works fine with the CVS and the depmod suggestion now. YMMV.
