Linux Cd-Rom detection problem during install
Posted on 1998-09-05
When attempting to install Linux it will not detect my cd-rom. I have a mitsumi cd-rom and have used the command at dos install /dev/hdc (for a primary on my second controller) along with variation of cdrom=mcd mcd=io,irq with the io specified and the irq specified. It trys to load at 11 and 300 by default w/o the io and irq specified. Do I need to specify a specific io and irq? Will it autodetect? I went into Windows and checked the io and irq but I may be specifying them incorrectly - How can I check the io and irq of my cd rom from dos? Or does anybody know the exact parameters to get the cd-rom going? It justs hangs during the install and says the cdrom failed to initialize. Thanks!
