I'm struggling with a particularly obstinate system:
1) Toshiba T2150 Satellite notebook (port at 0x378 is
running in standard bi-directional mode since the only
other choice is ECP).
2) Backpack CD-ROM, model 164700 (quad speed), which works
under Windoze 95 (the only other OS that'll run on this
little beast due to CPU and memory - 28 MB - limitations).
3) Debian 3.0r1, install CD ready to go (if I could read
it) since network is not yet available to the machine.
Attempting a fresh install from floppies, all goes well
until I try to recognize the CD-ROM drive. I load modules
until I have the following according to lsmod:
and then pcd will not load on matter what I've tried.
I've gone through all of the parameter possibilities I
can think of, centered about the ones that seem most
insmod pcd drive0=0x378,0,33
(33 = last two digits of the drive's serial number)
Every time, module installation fails and dmesg shows
"adapter not found", "autoprobe failed", or "no CD-ROM
drive found". Everything from no parameters, to specifying
all 6 manually, to different unit numbers, to specifying
no unit number, etc. all lead nowhere.
Any assistance or suggestions would be gratefully
appreciated. Thanks in advance.
