Parallel Port CD-ROM(BackPack) is not seen by RH 6.0 after completing installation.
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:14:10 EDT
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:
Sorry for taking so long in reply to your question.
Paride: Version 1.04 installed
bpck registered as protocol 0
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),
pcd0: master: cd-rom.Fx810T!4B
Can you then mount the CD-ROM after you've loaded these
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
