I have two problems to overcome having set up the Caldera OpenLinux and would be very obliged if you could set me on the right track. I do not have much notion of the mechanics of computers but the following is information I picked out in the hope that it may be enough to get me an answer.
(1) I cannot get Linux to recognize my CDROM. The following is a resume of the information I have gleaned and hope that it will be sufficient for someone out there to assist.
I have two hard drives and have devoted the second one D to Linux alone.
On the BIOS SetUp Utility I see the following :
Primary IDE Master [Quantum Fireball_TM3200A1]
Primary IDE Slave [2160 MB]
Secondary IDE Master [Philips CDD3610 CD-R/RW]
Secondary IDE Slave [CD-ROM 24X/AKOx]
On my computer the normal CDROM is on the H drive and the CDROM/R-R/W is on the G drive.
From the boot script I see the following :
Kernel: Initializing block devices <<<
Ramdisk driver initialized: 16 ramdisk of 4096k size
ide ..etc. etc. and then.......
hda : Quantum Fireball etc.
hdb: Maxtor 8216od2 etc.
hdc: no response (status=OxdO),resetting drive
hdc: Philips CDD3610 CD-R/RW, ATAPI CDROM drive
ideO at O X 1fO -OX1f7,OX3f6 on irq 14
ide 1 at O X 170 - OX177,)X376 on irq15.
Kernel: Check disk partition tables
hdb: hdb1 hdb2
& finally I looked in the etc/fstab to get the following:-
/dev/hdb2 /ext2 defaults 0 1
/proc /proc proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 none swap defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy ext2 defaults, nonauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ro, noauto 0 0
I hope the above information is sufficient to get an answer.
The second problem is that I cannot connect to the modem. The internal modem is connected to COM1 - but every time I go through Minicom -c to test the connection I get the following:
" Configuration file not found using defaults Device /dev/ttyS1 is locked"
Any ideas as to what I need to do to correct the above ??
Thanks for your assistance.
