SDB:New Automatic Setup of CD/DVD Drives with SuSE Linux 8.1
Your DVD, CD-ROM, or CD-RW drive does not work properly and you want the system to reconfigure it.
The modules cdrom, ide-cd, and ide-scsi are needed for an automatic configuration.
- Start YaST2.
- Go to 'System' and start the
Editor for /etc/sysconfig.
Common Basicsthen mark
Insert the modules in the line separated with blanks as in:
reiserfs cdrom ide-cd ide-scsi
If there are already other modules available, do not remove them. Save these entries and execute the command
mk_initrd in a root shell or console.
Still in the root shell, change to the given directory with the command
cd /var/lib/hardware/unique-keys/. Then execute the command
hwscan --list, which produces an output similar to the following one:
rdCR.lZF+r4EgHp4: [...] bios BIOS rdCR.CxwsZFjVASF: [...] memory Main Memory rdCR.99a6Uj8yMKC: [...] framebuffer ATI RAGE128 R128 rdCR.TwXnbzX7Ce3: [...] monitor Monitor +6Nb.L6YUholkGT8: [...] storage Intel 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 IDE [...] 8kLt.SiYpFqfpX+4: [...] cdrom CD-ROM 50X L sPPV.oZ89vuho4Y3: [...] floppy Floppy Disk yibb.iquB8cmEOd0: [...] mouse Intelli/Wheel Mouse B3Fu.Jt1hg9mdkyE: [...] hub Hub [...] 8kLt.yiP8uiEoUl3: [...] cdrom CD-ROM 50X L rdCR.3wRL2_g4d2B: [...] storage Floppy disk controller kmLG.SzA5IydFa05: [...] bridge Intel 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 ACPI rdCR.j8NaKXDZtZ6: [...] cpu Pentium III (Katmai), 550 MHz
The file name appears at the beginning of the line and the device at the end of it. The files contain the configuration of the corresponding device. Delete all the files created for
CDROM. For example:
Now remove all pertinent icons located on the desktop. Once all files and icons have been deleted, restart your computer.
After restarting, a window with the newly detected drives opens. Check all the necessary options and confirm by pressing OK. If there are several drives, the window opens again and the same procedure must be repeated. <keyword>cdrom,DVD,drive,writer</keyword>
