Description Stanley Suan 2000-06-07 18:53:06 UTC
Using a 8X BackPack parallel port CD-ROM drive, after obtaining the 
updated install images for RH 6.0, I successfully installed RH 6.0 on a 
old corporate PC.  However, I unable to mount the CD-ROM for further use.  
I found out that RH 4.2 had the same problem, and was wondering if I could 
use the same solution for RH 6.0? or I am faced with recompiling the 
kernel to add support for the BackPack CD-ROM?  Any thought, comments, and 
help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance.

What happens if you do:

modprobe parport
modprobe paride
modprobe bpck
modprobe pcd


Comment 2 Stanley Suan 2000-06-19 01:18:09 UTC
Sorry for taking so long in reply to your question.

modprobe parport:

modprobe paride:
   Paride: Version 1.04 installed

modprobe bpck:
   bpck registered as protocol 0

modprobe pcd:
   pcd:       pcd version 1.07, major 46, nice 0.
   parport0:  Dected irg 7, use procfs to enable interrupt-driven operation.
   pcd0:      Sharing parport0 at 0x378.
   pcd0:      bpck 1.02, backpack 17235452 unit 52 at 0x378, mode 0(4-bit),

Can you then mount the CD-ROM after you've loaded these

Comment 4 Stanley Suan 2000-06-27 23:11:38 UTC
   No, even after issuing the commands at the command line, I wasn't able to 
mount the CD-ROM drive.  

   But, for now, the thread has to be put on hold, because I had to install WIN 
95, etc.. on the computer to fill in for our crashed main computer at home.  
I'm won't be able to reinstall RH 6.0 Linux for about a month... so until then, 
so long, and thanks again for the help.

OK, closing as 'deferred'; please reopen if
you have further issues (we can't reproduce this in
testing here.)
