cannot find scsi cdrom


I can not find my scsi burner in my slack10 system. I did a "mesg | less" and it doesn't have any scsi drives in it. Should I recompile the kernel? or is there something else I should do?
Cheers

What's your controller? Slack may well have the module
already compiled, you probably just need to load it.


Cheers,
Tink

been there

on the command line run cdrecord -scanbus
If your system can find your scsi cdr it will show up with that.

At / create the directory cdrw

goto the /dev directory and create a symlink to scd0
do that with ln -s scd0 cdrw

modify your /etc/fstab to have this line
/dev/cdrw /cdrw iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

then stick a cdrom in the scsi drive and
mount /cdrw
ls /cdrw
umount /cdrw

if that doesn't work lets talk.

Hi Guzzy, what you say is right but i want to say two things. One, he can create the mount point in /mnt which is usually the default
And two, the cd-rw is not being detected, so cdrecord won't detect it either.
Btw mm3000 are you using kernel 2.4.X if so, are you using the append option in lilo?

When I lsmod I recieved this
Code:
dave@linux:~$ lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
when I modprobe -l it list these
Code:
/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/drivers/scsi/sr_mod.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/drivers/scsi/sata_sx4.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/drivers/scsi/sata_sis.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/drivers/scsi/ipr.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.ko
do I have to install these modulars now to get the burner to work?

Try
modprobe advansys

:}

If that loads without errors, have a look at
/proc/scsi/scsi
and check whether your cd shows up.


Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: I can't stand the 2.6 Kernel's way of handling
the documentation that shows up in "make menuconfig" ;}

The correct option in the kernel is CONFIG_SCSI_ADVANSYS.
If you make xconfig goto SCSI SUPPORT then SCSI Low-level drivers there you have Advansys SCSI Support.

EDIT: Forgot to say, this is kernel 2.4.X (i don't remember if the menu was the same on 2.6)
