Cannot install sbpcd module - cannot install linux:(

Post by David Welt » Mon, 18 Nov 1996 04:00:00

I am really in a bind here.  After an agonizing week of waiting, my new
debian CD showed up and I got to work installing.  Everything went
smoothly untill I went to install the kernel modules.  I have a 'reveal'
cd rom drive (possibly made by panasonic), that connects to the SC400
Reveal 4R sound card.  

I tried to install the sbpcd module for the kernel during the install,
but after taking 5 minutes or so to test a variety of addresses and names
(SoundBlaster, Lasersomethingorother, etc), it said that the installation
failed.  It seemed to get something at 0x230 SoundBlaster (the busy light
on the drive went on) but after spending a bit of time there, it just

I took those parameters and tried to feed them in manually doing:
append "sbpcd=0x230,SoundBlaster"
but it doesnt do anything.  I read the CDROM howto, and that was the only
advice I could glean from it.

As you may have gathered, I am really at a loss here, and would be most
grateful for any help offered.

1. install halts: "cannot create /modules/modules.cgz..."

I'm installing Mandrake 6.1 onto a Toshiba Tecra laptop.
Using FTP install with DHCP.
DHCP works fine (the PCMCIA is ok) and FTP reaches the Mandrake files
(located on another machine in my network).

During the first phase of the install (right after entering my domain name
and machine name) there is some FTP download activity and then the following
text error appears.
Any ideas?
/usr/bin/runintall2: cannot create /modules/modules.cgz: read-only file
install exited abnormally

cardmgr[14]: + ./network: /sbin/ifconfig: not found
