Linux & Mitsumi CD-ROM FX001 ?? How ??

Linux & Mitsumi CD-ROM FX001 ?? How ??

Post by Andreas Gloe » Sat, 05 Mar 1994 20:41:12



hi,

I have a Mitsumi Doublespeed CD-ROM FX001. While starting
Linux a message appears : mitsumi init failed ....

I just want to use the cd-rom from Linux.
Is there any possibility ?
I am using Linux lx99pl14. I found a patch name mcd.kern.diffs (or so??)
It was in a tar file name mcd_0_3.tar. I tried it out, but it does not
work.
Maybe my Mitsumi Drive will not work on Linux, or ????
Do I need any other program or files to use the cd-rom drive ???

Please send me a mail if you have some experiences with cd-rom
and especially with the mitsumi doublespeed cd-rom !!!

Thank you for any hint on how to solve my problem !

bye
        Andreas

 Hi,

 Try this:

 - Edit the mcd.h file (/usr/src/linux/include/linux/mcd.h) and replace the
   default settings (IRQ/Address) with yours.

 - Build a new kernel with Mitsumi CD-ROM AND ISO9660 filesystem support.

 - Install the new kernel and reboot.

 - To mount an ISO9660 CD: mount -t iso9660 /dev/mcd[0] /<your_dir.>

 - To play an audio CD: install "workman" AND it's XV-Libs, if you have
   installed XFree86 , else install "workbone".

 It should work with 99p14 without any patches.
 I also have a FX001D and it works for me (Slackware 1.1.1, 99p14-99p15i).

1. linux, Mitsumi CD-ROM (& SB), & the TA CD-ROM - solved!

Finally!

As I posted recently, I got the TA CD-ROM, and found that the setup kernel
recognized the CD drive, but the installed one didn't. I had trouble with
the recompile, as well.

The answer is:
    in (I think it's) /etc/include/linux/drivers/blocks, there are *two*
        makefiles. One is named Makefile, the other Makefile.orig. When
        I diffed them, I discovered Makefile.orig *had* conditions for
        compiling the Mitsumi driver, the Soundblaster driver, and one
        other driver, and Makefile *didn't*. I renamed both, and reran
        the compile. No problems, using lilo (after the usual moving &
        /etc/lilo/install) I boot off my hard drive, I can mount the
        CD ROM, etc.

I am emailing TA this, as well.
