How do I setup my cdburner to be /dev/scd0 (as I used to have with mandrake)? My xcdroast is complaining that my IDE cdburner (/dev/hdd) is not using scsi emulation. How do I set this up in arch?
Ok, thanks, I tried what you suggested (although I put ide-scsi into rc.conf, not ide-cd as that was not found)... but xcdroast still gives the same message.
I had a look around some other forums and it seems that ide scsi emulation is no longer needed with the newer kernels... and that I really should be using "k3b". I am installing it now and checking it out.
heh, yeah k3b is the de factor cd burning app these days...
if you want to just verify that your cdrom works, do the following. If this succeeds, then you know it's a problem with xcdroast:
as root run:
# cdrecord -dev=ATAPI -scanbus # cdrecord -dev=/dev/hdd -scanbus
one of those should succeed
if they do, k3b will definately work fine
