Mh…interesting. I´d suggest the following: If you have a laptop, just take out the CD-ROM hardware, shutdown your computer.
Then put it back in and restart your computer; this might tell OpenSuse that there is new hardware available. If nothing helps, try to repair your installation using the provided rapair system on the Distribution-DVD.
Mmm… i tried that and didn’t work for me as well (adding disk & cdrom).
When i boot to xp, dvd drive works; when i switch to SLED10sp2, the dvd is not even detected. the strange this is that i reformatted & re-installed sp2 using this very same dvd drive.
very strange indeed. i’m hoping SLED11 would solve this issue. My motheboard is an nvidia based one (k9n6pgm2, nvidia geforce mcp61p + nForce 430 chipset) with an amd processor.
Furthermore, when booting linux, the hard disk detection (hda1… to hda8) takes about 5 minutes, but it ‘stalls’ only on the hdd detection section and later it workarounds it itself after timing out and continues to boot.
if any of you know previously of this previous issue or gives me a hint on how to solve it, i’d really appreciate 'cause boot times are waaaayyy too long now and you get desperate with time having also into accout the dvd-not-detected problem.
I do not know why he can’t see the cd/dvd rom device but there is a bugzilla opened for the bug where you can’t use the dvd/cd rom device to write . I thought it’s the same bug that’s why i said it’s a temporary solution and that’s because there will be an update sent to fix it.
Hi, I have followed this thread and other similar. Have added CDRom & Drive to group permissions but KAudioCreator still gives me error messages.
Have looked in PolicyKit/policy file but need guidance please on how to apply this fix.
Also I have two SCSI CD devices, one R and one RW at /dev/sr1 and /dev/sr0 respectively. I should be able to select either using the drop down menu in KAudioCreator but all I have offered is CD-ROM. It now finds a drive with CD in but cannot run as it gives me errors. How do I get the drop down menu to offer what is installed?
Time has moved on. I just now re-read the bugzilla and it seems to me that it’s no longer necessary to apply the fix. Instead it seems that a new RPM to fix this has been included (for 11.1 users) in the Yast Online Update repository. Spo make sure you have added that: gotp Yast → Software → Software Repositiories and check that you have the
And then do a full online update: goto Yast → Software → Online Update
Let me try to be a bit clearer:
GoTo Yast → Software → Online Update. A GUI appears. On the left is a drop-down box titled “Filter”; set that to “Patches”. Underneath that, still on the left side, is another drop-down box titled “Show Patch Category”; Set that to “All Patches”. Now still in the left side, top section, scroll down until you find the patch called “Hal: collective bugfix update”. Use you mouse to highlight it. That will cause to appear on the right hand side the RPM called “Hal daemon for collecting hardware information”. Make sure there is a tick in the left on “Hal: collective bugfix update” and in the right on “Hal daemon for collecting hardware information”. Install the patch.
Try burning now. If it doesn’t work, reboot and try again
