If you have ATAPI devices, you need to have the ATAPICAM facility loaded, either by # kldload /boot/kernel/atapicam.ko or by compiling it into your kernel. If you don't have the proper permissions, access to ATAPICAM won't work. Access to cd, pass and xpt is needed (rules to be setup in /etc/devfs.conf), or simply call the command as root or via sudo. > enterprise# growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/acd0=neroultraV7.iso > :-( unable to CAMGETPASSTHRU for /dev/acd0: Inappropriate ioctl for device > > Something aint right obviously. Obviously. You need to specify an ATAPICAM device, /dev/cd0 for example. If you want to use /dev/dvd like in the example on growisofs's manpage, you need to change the symlink in /etc/devfs.conf: link cd0 dvd The symlink usually points to acd0 which isn't ATAPICAM compatible. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
