Golden Sound and Panasonic CD-ROM under RedHat Linux 6.0

Golden Sound and Panasonic CD-ROM under RedHat Linux 6.0

Post by Roderick B. Greenin » Wed, 02 Jun 1999 04:00:00

I can't seen to get my system to install RedHat 6.0 from CD-ROM. The
setup program does not detect my CD-ROM. I have tried all CD-ROM types
listed in the setup, but to no avail.

What I have is a 486, SX 50 with a golden sound 3-in-1 card and a
Panasonic CD-ROM attached. The golden sound card has IRQ 5, DMA 3, and
IO base address
of 310 (for CD-ROM). I have tried sbpcd=0x310,LaserMate as indicated for
soundblaster compatible cards with Panasonic CD-ROMs. This doesn't work
(nor does autoprobe). I even removed any ISA cards that could have
caused a conflict. It does work under windows 95 though, and I can
verify that the address is 0x310.

If anyone can help, I would appreciate it very much.


1. Linux from Nascent CD-ROM won't mount my panasonic cd-rom drive

        Hi, I just bought the Linux from Nascent CD-ROM and have been attempting
to install it on my 486DX2/66 machine.  I have a cardex SVGA card using a
Cirrus chipset and 1 meg of video ram.  I have 16 megs of 60-ns memory.  I also
have a local bus IDE hard drive controller (32-bit) running two 340-meg
western digital hard drives.  Oh, the video is local bus, too.  I also have
an IOMEGA floptical drive, as well as the almost expected 3.5" and 5.25"
floppies.  I also have a Soundblaster 16 sound card that is driving my CD-drive,
the setup that comes together in a multimedia pack, I forget the exact name,
but it is a fairly standard one.  It is a Panasonic cd-drive by the way.  
A panasonic 54- something I think.  When I boot and root my way into Linux,
It won't mount my cd-drive.  Since the program files are all on CD, that
means I can't install.  I followed the instructions for fixing this problemm
in the manual, i.e. "mknod /dev/sbpcd b 25 0"
                    "ln -fs /dev/sbpcd /dev/cdrom"
This looked fine, but when I rebooted, Linux still wouldn't mount my drive.
I even tried getting new root and boot images via anonymous FTP and rawrite.
No dice.  Does anyone have any ideas?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
