I am having much fun with Linux. I am no rookie with operating systems but I
am having a little problem. I am running the PAS16 SCSI CD-ROM - I think it's
a trantor drive - and Linux seems to be upset about it. I can access the setup

and anything else on the CD (Slackware) but when I select the file sets and
say "GO" it loses it's mind. Gives me errors about unrecognized CD-ROM drive.

The boot kernal I'm using is scsinet2 - which says it supports the ProAudio
Spectrum 16 and Trantor.

What gives?????? :-{  

I also checked sunSite under kernal/patches/cdrom - no luck.

It HAS to be something very simple and I will probably be appropriatly
embarrassed when I hear the answer.........

Thanks in advance


CAUTION!....You too could be a speedbump on the information superhighway!



I am trying to install the Slackware version 2.0 off of CD-ROM. When I try
to boot using the bootdisk made using \bootdsk0\scsi I get the
response below. It looks like Linux is recognizing the scsi interface and
the CD-ROM but the system just hangs ( with drive A still spinning ).

I am using the MediaVision MV-1000 PAS-16 sound card with SCSI interface to
the CDR-H93MV CD-ROM ( does anybody know who really makes the CD-ROM? )

scsi0: at 0x388 irq 10 options CAN_QUEUE=32 CMD_PER_LUN=2 release=1
       generic options AUTOPROBE_IRQ AUTOSENSE PSEUDO DMA generic release=4
scsi0: PRO AudioSpectrum - 16 SCSI
scsi: 1 hosts.
      Vendor: MEDIAVIS     Model: CDR-H93MV Rev 1.32
      Type: CD-ROM         ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Detected scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, id 1, lun 0
scsi0: resetting for second half of retries  <---- here is where it hangs!

I have seen some other posts that reference the boot command:
  linux max_scsi_luns=1 pas16=0x388,255
Will this help in my case? Thanks in advance for any help on this problem!
