    cdrecord problems


    Hey all, I just got my hands on slackware 9 and am having some problems getting my CD burner to work. I ran cdrecord -scanbus to make sure everything was working, and got this message:

    cdrecord:
    No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

    Support for IDE and SCSI emulation is either in the kernel or a module, I checked.

    Any ideas??

    thanks

    Do you have the generic SCSI access driver (sg.o) loaded?

    Sorry, I thought you knew that (since you knew that you should run cdrecord -scanbus). Run lsmod or cat /proc/modules to check which modules are loaded.

    ok, i ran lsmod and didn's find sg.o. the only thing I found that might be of use was that ide-scsi was there. sorry about the delay in replying, i'll try not to do that in the future =]

    That's a bit strange. Generic SCSI is usually loaded by the kernel when cdrecord -scanbus is run. Try running "modprobe sg" before cdrecord and see what it says.

    Ok, I did 'modprobe sg' as root and got 'modprobe: Can't locate module sg'

    Did you compile your kernel yourself? I can't imagine that slackware ships without sg.

    Is there any way that you can verify the installation? If Slackware is RPM based, you should be able to run "rpm -V kernel" to see if the kernel and its modules are installed correctly.
