I've been trying to get my 7200e at work running with linux and I did find
a nice web page with a step by step instructions. It seems everything
works until I load the pg driver. The only problem is that my dev
directory didn't have a pg0 file.
When the pg module was loaded it said something about having a major number
of 97, so I created a file in the dev directory called pg0 with a major
number of 97 and a minor number of 0. That didn't work unfortunately.
I did get the source code for cdrecord 1.61 but the documentation on how to
compile it to use the pg module is pretty slim. I don't know if it now
supports it like it didn't in earlier versions or not. When I try to
get it to use the recompiled cdrecord, it says something about
operation not supported by device.
Anyone have any luck with getting the HP 7200e working under linux?
Oh I did get it to load up as a pcd and I was able to read CDs off of the
I'm using mnandrake 5.3 as my base, with kernel 2.0.36.
