I'm attempting to mount/access/boot linux from CD. I have
the following hardware:
CPU: Compaq Presario 650 (486DX2/50)
Sound card: ProAudio Specrtum 16 (MediaVision)
CD-ROM: Media Vision CDR-H93MV Rev. 1.32 (Feb 94)
Original problem - when booting kernel use to get:
Detected scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, id 1, lun0
scsi0: resetting for second half of retries,
... and then the system hangs ...
Got past it by rebuilding kernel with methods below. The hints
were provided to me by users on the net (thanks Olav, Alex).
Built one kernel with the drive that I have inserted in
the black list of scsi.c.
The other kernel defines "NO_MULTI_LUN" in scsi.c so that
the kernel does not check for multiple logical unit unmbers.
The CD-ROM is defined in fstab as follows:
/dev/sr0 /mnt/CD iso9660 defaults,noauto,ro
Now my current problem is - mounting the CD-ROM. When I try to mount the
with the mount command.
The CD-ROM drive access light becomes active. The system waits for about
minutes. The the following message pops up. Another weird thing is that
linux is booted I cannot open the CD-ROM door - the open button has become
mount: wrong fs type, /dev/sr0 already mounted, /mnt/CD busy, or other
The kernel is built with iso9660 file type, the drive is not mounted
so I don't think it is busy. So ... it must be "other error" ...
Also used maknod to build /dev/sr0 with major number 11 minor 0.
Also download the new distribution and rebuilt new kernels with the same
Any ideas what this other error could be? And more importantly how I can
around it? Please reply by mail my news access is flakey at best.
