Mounting CDROM with old soundcard interface

Mounting CDROM with old soundcard interface

Post by Lars Eighn » Mon, 14 Sep 1998 04:00:00

I have an ancient cd rom on an old Reveal kit soundcard.

I'd like to install it in FreeBSD.

The Redhat installation routine tells me this about the CDROM:

CR-563 (0.75) at 0x630 (Laser Mate), data buffer 8 frames
Max size 265330, Log zone size 2048, First data zone 34
Root inode number 49152, ISO9660 extensions RRIP_1991A.

I have got FreeBSD 2.2.7 to recognize the sound card
with the sb0 and options line below:

controller      matcd0  at isa? port 0x630 bio

device          scd0    at isa? port 0x230 bio

controller      snd0
device          sb0     at isa? port 0x220 irq 5 drq 1 vector sbintr
options "SBC_IRQ=5"

however, matcd0 which I was hoping to be CDROM is not found
at 0x630.

Linux seems to find this with sbpcd.c, but I don't find the equivalent
in FreeBSD.

Any help, especially in short simple words, would be appreciated.

1. mount error: mount only root can mount /dev/cdrom on cdrom

"That should do it.  I hope this was not to long an explaination, but
"I want you to have a fell for what you are doing before doing it.

"Now as to why...
"Most multitasking multiuser Operation system do not let users
"access the mount command.  Linux makes it possible for users
"to use the command, but doesn't give the privilage to automatically.
"Root has to set the priv on a per device basis.

   ... oh wow.  that was great.  thanks ...
