To make room in my computer, I got myself a SI-390A ide to parallel
interface to place my cdrom on.
paride installs perfectly
protocol epat (wich is used in the SI-390A) installs perfectly
pcd detects my cdrom perfectly
Mounting the cdrom and listing its contents also succeeds.
However, when I try to execute anything on the cdrom, view images, or
anything that isn't a plain text file, everything hangs, and always with
a different scenario:
- The first time it was like random code was being executed on a
processor. It gave a register dump and froze
- The second time a shellscript wich spawns a tcl/tk script halfway
crashed, leaving damaged libraries all over. Not only tcl/tk, but also
for example a kdm library.
- The third time the computer froze when inspecting the contents of the
cdrom using kfm (the K file manager). I suspect this is because kfm
tries to recognise file types by inspecting all the files.
Ok, about my computer.
Dual P III with 128MB memory
Debian 2.2 (potato)
Kernel 2.3.41 (with paride, epat and pcd as modules)
Parallel port set in bios on EPP
Standard ATAPI CDRom connected to a SI-390A parallel -> ide interface
'Behind' the cdrom, a Brother HL-6 is connected to the same parallel
Thanks for giving it a look.
