Subject: [Livid-dev] Support for Pioneer?

Hi,

I got a pioneer scsi dvd-rom (DVD-U03S) today as a present, and it works
great as a generic scsi cd-rom (of course), but how's the support for it
in the dvd area? (I haven't tried DVDs yet since I haven't got any).

Depends on your kernel version. For 2.3, you're fine. For 2.2.*
you need to grab the patch from my web site.

2.2.13: grab nov7-2.2.diff, listed Nov 9
2.2.14-pre: just grab the newest one.

Subject: [Livid-dev] dvd on SCSI pioneer (continued)

Sorry to bother you people about this, but I've tried a couple of hours,
and can't get dvd to work correctly yet.

Once again, I'm using a Pioneer drive (DVD-303 according to
/proc/scsi/scsi). The kernel I'm using is 2.3.31. I have added support for
everything mentioning CDROM in the kernel config, but I don't get any
cdrom.o file (is this needed?). I do however get the ufs and udf modules
and can load these successfully.

The problem is that I get the error message 'GetASF failed' when trying
tstdvd, etc (yes, I ran reset before). I couldn't find any help on any
websites or in the README files. :-)

You only get the cdrom.o module if you choose a modular SCSI
CD-ROM driver.
