Mitsumi CD-Rom Bootdisk Problems

Post by Lyon Gilbe » Wed, 27 Dec 1995 04:00:00



I'm trying to install Linux using the Slackware 2.3 distribution. I
can't get it to recognize my Mitsumi CD-Rom which is connected to a SB
16. I've tried several Bootdisks, including:
bare, scsi, mitsumi and sbpcd
Anyone have any suggestions? Please e-mail me at

Check the address.  It's defaulted to 300, and at least on my system, it's
320.  so when you boot add the option mcd=320,11(or something like that...
read the bootprompt howto for all the options for lilo).  of course, those
values will change, depending on where your hardware is at..

Thanks... I'll try this sometime today.. It's only 7:06, so I'll get back
to you.. Damn, that book I bought that comes with Slackware really
sucks... luckily, once I get this thing installed, I won't have problems
as I'm familiar with Unixes.

And once you have everything installed, if you don't use LILO (like
myself) then one way to have CD-ROM mounted is to recompile the
kernel...  I hacked the mcd.c file to set the interrupt on 10 and
the I/O on 230.  There's probably another way to do it, but this
works for me. (+:

I had the same problem. Solved it through disconnecting the MIT FX001D
from the SB16 controller and using Mitsumi's proprietary CD-ROM
controller card. Maybe I should have tried address and IRQ settings
..
