How does one get ones cd writer to work :(
I have a lite-on cd writer and I wanted to try an create a boot / install cd as the floppies I keep using keep throwing out errors. I have mounted the shrike-i386-disk1.iso and have created the iso file as it states in the redhat instructions. The problem is now, I can't get my cd writer to work.
I have put a blank cd in and and have added it to the gnome cdwriter software that is installed. I don't know tho, what the device file should be ??? and how I set it up. I think it should be ATA something as it'a and ide atapi cdrom....but I don't know how to change it....
Evertime I hit record it brings up and error in /dev/pg I think it was and mentions aload of scsi errors.....
Anyone have any clues how I can fix this ?
When you get rh9 online, try this:
After you finish your install and can actually work on rh9, its very probable that the problem was that the device in which you're cd writer was wasn't listed as a recording device on the gnome software.
First you need to know in what device is your cd-writer on: just go to hardware browser (usually under System Tools) and your drive should be under "CD-ROM drives", there you'll know what device it is on. If you install rh9, is very probable that the software you'll get is GnomeToaster and/or X-CD-roast. In any of them, go to the configuration area and make sure that the device that they're using is the device that you got from the hardware browser and that it is a "writable device" (in the case GnomeToaster).
Hope this helps.
