CD Burning Problem


I've been slowly learning Slackware and Linux and I've been setting up my computer for the hardware I need. I've gotten it to load the 3-d Nvidia drivers, I've managed to get the latest drivers fo a Creative Audigy loaded. Now, however, I need serious help. I've perused through this forum (and many others) looking for things to try, and none of them have really worked. I've tried searching google, freshmeat, sourceforge, coming up empty all around. I'm trying to set up my cd burner to burn and I'm not having any luck getting it even halfway there. Let me give you the specs and what I've done.

Slackware 8.1
Kernel 2.4.19
Yamaha CDRW3200E CD-RW drive
I've configured the kerel and said "yes" to the following:
* SCSI Support
* SCSI CD-ROM Support
* SCSI Generic Support
* Enable Vendor Specific Extensions
* Enhanced IDE/MFM/RLL/disc/cdrom/tape/floppy support
* Include IDE/ATAPI CDROM Support
* SCSI Emulation Support
* ISO 9600 CDROM Support
* Joliet CDROM Extentions
I said "no" for Probe All LUNs On Each SCSI Device
I've added append="hdd=ide-scsi" to lilo.conf
I've unremarked /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi in rc.modules
I've unremarked /sbin/modprobe sg in rc.modules
I've added options ide-cd ignore="hdd" in modules.conf
I've changed the CD drive's line in fstab to read /dev/scd0 /cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
If I try modprobe ide-scsi it returns Can't locate module ide-scsi
If I try modprobe sg I get the same message
If I try cdrecord -scanbus it returns the following:

Cdrecord 1.11a24 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jorg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'/ Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.

I am logged in as root.

I've done just about everything I've seen suggested and I'm still unable to get this thing to be recognised as a burner by K3b. Any suggestions?

This may sound like a daft question, but although you put hdd=ide-scsi into your lilo.conf file, did you re-run lilo to put the change into effect?

Yes. Any and every time I changed anything, I'd make sure the rest of the changes were still there then reboot.

Hmmm. Presumably you can't access the drive as a CD reader cos you can't seem to modprobe the ide-scsi. Do you think changing this line back would help? I'm not really sure, but I never needed to change it:
I've added options ide-cd ignore="hdd" in modules.conf

Make sure ide-scsi compiled as module as opposed to built-in
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECD=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI=m

Well I added that line after pulling my hair out trying to figure out what was wrong. I saw it suggested someplace and tried it. Hasn't done me any good at all though.

I tried it as a module before, same deal. Let me recompile this again and we'll see if it gets anyplace.

ALSO...

Make sure you have SCSI DISK SUPPORT; SCSI CDROM; and SCSI GENERIC SUPPORT compiled in as well.

I missed one of those, and it really screwed me up for a while. There is also an option in the IDE subsection of ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL that says:
SCSI EMULATION SUPPORT
This should also be enabled. I build everything into the kernel for SCSI support rather than Module, but mainly because I always want things working there.

Cool

Already have all that in there.

Ok, recompiled so SCSI Emulation is modular, compiled the modules, made dep, clean, modules, modules-install, bzImage, made sure lilo was set up right, rebooted.

modprobe scsi
modprobe: Can't locate modules ide-scsi

Same place as before. Any other suggestions?

So this might be real dumb, and I'm sorry but...

You are modprobing as root right?

Also, check in your /lib/modules/2.4.x directory to see if it's actually in there.

Cool

Does this exist /lib/modules/2.4.19//kernel/drivers/scsi/ide-scsi.o?

As a matter of fact, no. All it has is sg.o. Checked for hidden files as well. That would probably explain it, wouldn't it? Hmmm. Well, now what?

It comes up under /usr/src/linux-2.4.19/drivers/scsi though. I tried copying it over and rebooting, same thing it's been doing. I'm starting to think maybe this thing isn't compatible.

Nah, it is not that, try this in /usr/src/linux
edit Makefile - you'll see on the top something like
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 4
SUBLEVEL = 19
EXTRAVERSION =
Put in extraversion soemthng remarkable (kidding, but idescsi will suffice, on the other hand you can put there a poem if you wish)
so now it'll look
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 4
SUBLEVEL = 19
EXTRAVERSION = idescsi
save it, and recompile the kernel again, make damn sure that SCSI emulation is compiled as module, ide-scsi as module, ide-cdrom builtin, scsi builtin, etc
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinz-idescsi
edit lilo.conf appropriately
rerun lilo
and boot again.
So I guess, I'll talk to you in the morning, it is quite late here in NY.
Good night
P.S. /sbin/depmod -a
didn't help, did it?
