how can I get my burner working?


Hi,
I have both a CDROM and a CD-RW, which are both connected via IDE.
Unfortunatly, there is no entry for a burner in my /etc/fstab

Code:
/dev/hdb6        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hdb7        /                reiserfs    defaults         1   1
/dev/hdb5        /fat-c           vfat        defaults         1   0
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
So, how do I install my burner?

Im using Slack 9.0 with the *.20 kernel

Verify this line is in /etc/lilo.conf: append=”hdc=ide-scsi”

Verify this line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules is uncommented:
/sbin/modprobe ide-scsi

(reboot if changes were necessary)

As root, run: cat /proc/scsi/scsi (the CD-RW should be listed)

Edit /etc/fstab, add this line:
/dev/scd0 /mnt/scd0 iso9660 noauto,users 0 0

Run the following as root:
mkdir /mnt/scd0
cd /dev
rm cdrom
ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom
chmod 666 /dev/scd0

If you want your users to be able to run useful burning packages, run the following:
chmod u+s /usr/bin/cdrecord
chmod u+s /usr/bin/mkisofs
chmod u+s /usr/bin/cdparanoia

Actually, I do not use lilo; I'm booting via bootdisk.

What is the right parameter in that case?

The 'file' /dev/cdrom is actually a link to /dev/hdc (usually) and you don't want to delete it if you intend to still use your cdrom as well as your burner. So instead, create a new link (maybe /dev/cdrw) that points to /dev/hdd, assuming your burner is the slave on the second IDE channel. You will also want to add a new directory (/mnt/cdrw) as a mount point for the burner. Then add this line to your fstab:

/dev/cdrw /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0

When you want to mount the burner, just use the command:

mount /mnt/cdrw

Also, instead of going through the nightmare of scsi emulation, read /usr/doc/cdrtools-2.0/README.ATAPI then try the command:

cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus

If you can see your cdrw, then just use the -dev=ATAPI:X,X flag (corresponding to the output of scanbus) when you burn. This way you can slim down your kernel by eliminating scsi support and you don't have to pass any special parameters to the kernel when booting.

Enjoy!

The exact command depends on where your burner is physically connected to your computer. But assuming that it's the slave on the second IDE channel, it would be /dev/hdd. You can check this using the following command:

dmesg | less (the symbol in between dmesg and less is 'shift backslash')

You will have to scroll down until you see your burner listed. For now, I'll assume it's hdd. Now do the following:

Code:
command            explanation
cd /dev          this will move you to the /dev directory
ln -s hdd cdrw   this will create the link
cd /mnt          this will move you to the /dev directory
mkdir            this will creat the /mnt/cdrw directory which
                   will be the mount point for your burner
cd /etc          this will move you to the /etc directory
(now you have to edit /etc/fstab. I'll tell you how to do this in pico)
pico fstab       this will open fstab in pico
Use the arrows on your keyboard to move to the end of the line that describes your cdrom. Hit the enter key to start a new line. then type:

/dev/cdrw /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0

then hit 'ctrl-x' to exit and 'y' to save the changes.

Enjoy!

there are a few

XCDRoast is a good one, but the best featureful cdburning software, in my opinion would be K3B.

However its all very easy from the command line too.

umm, yeah, you should install cdrecord. It should be on you slackware CD. From the CD I suggest you install cdrtools, cdrdao, cdparanoia and then for a graphical CD burning program like Nero you should try K3B. Which ofcourse you can find on www.google.com

i've install cdrtools, cdrdao, cdparanoia. when i try to run xcdroast there is message :
** WARNING **: No /usr/local/bin/cdrecord installed
** WARNING **: (Invalid lib-directory? Check -l option)

if i run cdrecord -scanbus there is message :
Cdrecord 1.11a24 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg 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.

and if cdrecord dev=atapi -scanbus :

scsidev: 'atapi'
devname: 'atapi'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open 'atapi'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.

i'm running as root. is there something i missed ?

The command is case-sensitive, so must type 'ATAPI' instead of 'atapi'

cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus

Enjoy!

i've tried cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus, and here the result :

scsidev: 'ATAPI'

Warning: The related libscg interface code is in pre alpha.
Warning: There may be fatal problems.
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.

is something wrong with my cdrecord ?

Yeah, that's an old version of cdrecord. I'm using 2.0, which came with Slack 9. You'll probably have to upgrade or (gasp!) use scsi emulation. You can get the source here:

i've download cdrtools-2.00.3.tar.gz and tried to install.
first i use kpackage to install but ended with :
<e/thundersnows/cdrtools-2.00.3.tar.gz ;echo RESULT=$?
Cannot install //mnt/hda2/home/thundersnows/cdrtools-2.00.3.tar.gz: package does not end in .tgz
RESULT=3

after that i tried to extract the file and run 'make'.
it installed in /opt/schily/
i can only run cdrecord from this directory. so if i tried to run cdrecord from other directory, command can not found.

can someone help me with the installation ?
