Cdrom attached to snd card

Post by John David Bowd » Thu, 14 Jan 1999 04:00:00



I've got an odd little problem here...my cdrom (matsushita) isn't attached
to an hd controller.  The ribbon cable attaches directly to the sound
card.  Can I assume that the sound card is the controller, or if not, can
I use the cdrom anyway, if I've got the port (0x300 i think) and the irq?

I had similar problem: mitsumi cdrom and sound blaster (creative labs) sound
card. I started driver for ide controler from DOS first, and then I started
linux. I am not shure, but I think that I also add parameter in the line:

[autoexec.bat]
<here goes line for IDE DRIVER on sound card>
c:\loadlin.exe c:\vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 mem=32M ro vga=3 ide3=something
                                                          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Please, read documentation about loadlin ...

... hope this help ...

Yes it works - you need to add an additional parameter when selecting
the cdrom, with port & irq - if you have the red hat manual there is an
example in the appendix

        And also  in the boot promt HOWTO.  Please  excuse any drunken
typing errors but I'm  suffering from a  bad case of  end of exams.  I
think I remember that I saw details about the Matishwotsit drives when
I was trying to get my CDU33A to work under Linux. If oyu can find it,
there is currently a  disscussion on dur.general (try  news.durge.org)
about how to get these drives to work I think.

1. CDROM on Snd Card Only

Hi -

        I'm thinking of installing RH5.2, but have a question.  After
opening up the case, it seems that the CDROM drive is only attached to the
Sound Card.  Now according to RH's docs, the sound card is supported
(opti929 I believe); does this pose a problem for the CDROM?
