I am still having problems with BOTH Redhat 6.1 and Mandrake 7.0 on the same box.
sda4 is not a valid block device. Here is my dmesg file where the
parport_pc and ppa is loaded at the end (This is the Mandrake install btw). the other SCSI I have is the
emulation for the CDburner which I have not yet wrestled with...
Linux version 2.2.14-15mdk (email@example.com) (gcc version
2.95.2 19991024 (release)) #1 Tue Jan 4 22:24:20
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [SPP,PS2,EPP]
ppa: Version 2.03 (for Linux 2.2.x)
ppa: Found device at ID 6, Attempting to use EPP 32 bit
ppa: Communication established with ID 6 using EPP 32 bit
scsi1 : Iomega VPI0 (ppa) interface
scsi : 2 hosts.
Vendor: IOMEGA Model: ZIP 100 Rev: D.09
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Detected scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 6, lun 0
SCSI device sda: hdwr sector= 512 bytes. Sectors= 196608 [96 MB] [0.1 GB]
sda: Write Protect is off
sda:SCSI disk error : host 1 channel 0 id 6 lun 0 return code = 27010000
scsidisk I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 0
unable to read partition table
if I do
mount -tvfat /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip I get sda4 is not a valid block device.
I have tried 2 or 3 disks inserted at bootup and no disk at all... I did try an
experiement tho. I did the ole lpr textfile.txt on a fresh boot and low and behold my
printer fired up. I have no idea how to tell what has been compiled into
the kernel but I suspect that the parallel printer support has been in the
default Mandrake 7.
When I try rmmod lp I get it is not installed. Is this the correct procedure to remove the parallel print services? Does this
mean it must be compiled in statically? I see at boot up the lpd being
started and stopped at shutdown. But I cannot find anywhere where it is
loaded as a module and I cannot remove it either.
