    More CDwriter troubles Slackware Linux 10.2


    I installed Slackware 10.2 with the 2.4.31 kernel last night. During the boot sequence it says I have a Cd-rom and a Cd-writer. However, once it's all booted up, it only recognizes my regualr CD rom drive. The CD Writer ceases to exist.

    Would an editing of my fstab file do the trick? Or is the 2.4.31 kernel part of the problem?

    Any help would be great. Thanks in advance

    are you using scsi emulation? you will need to for a 2.4 kernel and an ide cd writer


    if you want to check what happened on boot type 'dmesg'

    if you want to search it for devices

    you can pipe it into less

    dmesg | less

    or dmesg | grep cd

    to show information about your cd drives
