NEC 2X IDE CD-ROM CDR-260 drivers?

Post by David Ha » Sat, 25 Jun 1994 05:41:22

I am trying to get a new Gateway P90 Pentium with a NEC CDR-260 CD-ROM (
IDE interface) to boot with the Yggdrasil CD-ROM.  Does anyone know of
any drivers availabe for this drive?  Any help appreciated...



1. NEC CDR-260 CD-ROM (Gateway IDE CD-ROM)

Has anyone had success with the alpha CDR-260 driver on sunsite?  I
tried patching and compiling on both 1.0.9 and 1.1.18 sources
(slackware) and while both patched and compiled, neither could accesss
the CD.  I tried a cat /dev/idecd (which I created according to the
insructions) and it gave me an I/O error.

If anyone has made this work, please mail me.  (Include kernal
version).  I'll summarize if there is interest.
