ide-scsi not compiled into kernel
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:06:44 EST
I hope that this is the appropriate place to make a feature request.
I really need ide-scsi compiled into the kernel. Not for CD Burning,
this works great. But for atapi tape drives.
As an example, Arkeia does not support IDE, only SCSI, so, in order
to get my backups functioning again was to recompile the kernel with
Please... please put it back into the kernel
No reason why it shouldn't be supplied as a module - it's currently
turned off entirely. "cdrecord" complains that it has to use the
"badly designed" /dev/hd* interface, so I'd have preferred to stick
with the old ide-scsi method. "cdrecord" also thinks that it has
to be able to open /dev/hda, so it has to be hacked if I want non-root
users to be able to use it - this isn't necessary with the ide-scsi
built in current errata kernels.
