It's a brand new Pioneer DR-UP124X5 drive which works under MSDOS
but not my Linux - even though the same kernel recognises a different
ATAPI CD-ROM on another machine. I've tried it as slave on primary IDE
and master on secondary IDE, both of which work under MSDOS but not
I ran MAKEDEV.ide from Linux 1.3.97 to create /dev/hd1a etc. but
that didn't help of course - the kernel doesn't see the drive.
I haven't been able to try Linux 1.3.x yet because make reported an
error when producing a compressed kernel which I haven't had time to
sort out - it produced an uncompressed kernel happily but I can't see
that it's much use - it's too big to fit below the 640K barrier.
Has anyone else got a Pioneer ATAPI CD-ROM drive to work ? Any
Please reply via email as my newsfeed is slow and unreliable and I'm
in a hurry to establish whether I can get the drive working so I can
return it if I can't.
