CDRW INSTALL

Post by Terr » Sat, 05 May 2001 13:20:00



I installed a new CDRW, I've got the CDRW to where I can mount and read
CD's on it.

When trying to run Xcdroast I get the following error message:

No Generic-SCSI-Support has been detected.  Without it no SCSI-Devices
can be
detected or used by X-CD-Roast.  Please load the sg-module (e.g. "insmod
sg")
or recompile your kernel with Generic-SCSI-Support.

sg module is loaded:
# insmod sg

You probably have an IDE CDRW. If so, you'll need to use the SCSI emulation
module called ide-scsi.
In your /etc/modules.conf, add
  pre-install sg modprobe ide-scsi
  pre-install sr_mod modprobe ide-scsi

In your /etc/lilo.conf

image=/boot/bzImage.004
        label=linux.004
        root=/dev/hda5
        read-only
        append="hdd=ide-scsi "   <---- Change this line

In your /etc/fstab, edit the cdrom line to point to the new device. Generally,
it will be something like /dev/scd0.

1. CDRW installed wrong?

The CDRW in a server I bought with RH6.2 does not recognize iso9660 format
CDs.  I have a professionally prepared redhat distribution that works on 3
other workstations.  When I try to mount it in your server I issue the
following command:
      mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
and it reports:
      mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on device /dev/cdrom,
             or too many mounted file systems.

The following file systems are mounted (as reported by mount with no args):
      /dev/hda5
      /dev/hda1
      /dev/md0

Can you suggest what I have done wrong?

Thanks,
Mike
