Slackware 9 CD-burner recognition (?) problem
I've been using Red Hat on a dual boot machine and I decided to try Slackware 9. The install was fine, except for my CD-burner. I can't get it to burn CDs. It's an LG, standard IDE cd-burner (if anyone needs the exact model number, I can dig it up.)
I have the hdc=ide-scsi in my lilo.conf and I'm using the pre-packaged scsi.i kernel that was on the ISO. I installed everything on the CD. When I run cdrecord -scanbus, this is the output I get:
root@slacker:~# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 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'.
So my questions, to anyone who could help:
1. What's /dev/pg*? I'm not familiar with pg
2. Did I select the right kernel, and if not which one should I use?
3. Slackware 9.0 supposedly installed the kernel source for 2.4.20, but for the life of me I can't find it. Does Slackware install the source in a non-standard location, or am I just an idiot who accidentally unchecked that box during install?
