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

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

    Why did you appended ide-scsi to hda?

    hda is almost always the hard drive...

    Can you just change that line to hdb?

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

    thats what got me confused too but dmesg said it was hda ??? and my hard drive is hdc which should be hda right ??? ???

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

    Not necesarily.

    That would mean that your hard drive is a master on the secondary IDE controller, and your cd-rom is a master on the primary one. Basically, you have your computer setup the other way around that is traditionally done. I don't think it matters.

    Besides adding the line to the lilo.conf, you also need scsi support on your kernel. did you compiled that?

    yes I did have scsi support enabled as a modules I followed the guide on the gentoo site.

    Cdrecord 2.01a14 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2003 Jörg Schilling
    cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
    cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
    cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'

    Change the line on the lilo.conf, to point to hda instead and reboot. See if that helps.

    Also, make sure the following line, on /etc/modules.devfs is uncommented:

    # All SCSI devices
    probeall /dev/scsi scsi_hostadapter sd_mod sr_mod st sg


    Also, I remember having to disable IDE cdrom support on my Gentoo laptop, because it was loading that before loading the sg driver.

    Well...

    You didnt (or ive missed) said which dist. you are so Ill hit my guess....

    Did you compiled ide-scsi as a module and compiled to kernel the ability to use SCSI emulation on cdrom?

    Thanks for your help guys ;D I works now I had to install Red Hat 9 with apt4rpm (kicks ass). I had to install RH because gentoo wouldnt boot up after we has a blackout > and I didnt want to wait 24hr so I can use my computer. Besides RH seems to run faster ??? ???
