Thread: I think I have a big problem???

    Re:I think I have a big problem???

    Gorn made a pretty good tutorial on what to do if linux won't boot. I'd say try it, and we will troubleshoot it if you can't get it to work.

    What makes you think it notices the drive as a reader?

    because every time I go into the device section of k3b my cdrom is under reader but there is nothing in writer.

    Try running the application as root. Did you enabled SCSI emulation on your grub.conf, by adding the hdb=ide-scsi thingie?

    You won't get anywhere if you don't add it. As far as I remember, on my laptop running Gentoo, my cd drive is hdb. Basically, your primary IDE master is hda, primary IDE slave is hdb, secondary IDE master is hdc and secondary IDE slave is hdd.

    This is the beggining of my lilo.conf:

    # LILO configuration file
    # generated by 'liloconfig'
    #
    # Start LILO global section
    append="hdb=ide-scsi"
    boot = /dev/hda
    message = /boot/boot_message.txt
    prompt
    timeout = 1200

    This is how my grub.conf looks like (on my desktop):


    # root (hd0,1)
    # kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda2 noinitrd
    # boot=/dev/hda
    default=1
    timeout=10
    splashimage=(hd0,2)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    title Slackware 9 2.4.21
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi vga=791
    title Windows XP
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1

    Actually your device might be hdc or hdd. Setting to the wrong drive could have messed some stuff up. Check dmesg (by typing 'dmesg' in a terminal), and look for a line that says:

    hdx <MODEL_OF_CDROM_DEVICE>

    The "x" will be the letter you need to use for your "append". Appending to the correct CD-ROM device shouldn't kill your system. Give it another try.
