Linux can't find SCSI CDRom unless booting off CD

Linux can't find SCSI CDRom unless booting off CD

Post by Ary Geuvdjeli » Sat, 28 Jan 1995 15:17:20

        I have a Plextor 4X on a Orchid Soundware card.
        The Soundware has a Future Domain compatible SCSI-2
Cdrom interface built into it and I'm running the drive off that.
My problem is that the only way linux will recognize the cd is
when I run the dosload program that comes with my linux cd.
But the CD is an old kkernel that doesn't have the IDE patch in it
and the CD boots off a special kernel call "doslinux".  Does
anyone know how to create that special kernel or how to get a
standard kernel to detect the CDRom drive?

Any help will be appreciated.


1. ide cdrom and cdrom writer with scsi harddisk using cdrecord can't find cd reader

I have a scsi controller with the primary harddisk (id 0) and 2 ide cdrom
drives. When using xcdroast (cdrecord) it only shows the cd recorder and not
the other ide cdrom. Loaded modules are scsi-ide and sg. The system shows
both drives found and the cd writer is assigned a scsi device, but xcdroast
does not show the reader.

2. pids + start times kept in exec calls?

3. boot finds scsi cd, install can't

4. Modem problem, help!
