I have installed NeroLinux in my Red Hat 8 with kernel 2.4.29.
It works very well with an internal Samsung DVD-DL writer through ide-scsi emulation.
It also recognise an external USB HP CD-Writer+ 8200a as: " Device= HP CD-Writer+ 8200a , ID=0 , Adapter=usb-storage-1 , Adapter No. 2 , Status=OK ".
However when it tries to access this writer (i.e.- by choosing it as the recorder) NeroLinux freezes and it blocks my whole KDE session. I have to Ctrl-Alt-F1 to a text console to kill NeroLinux in order to get back to my KDE session. Also the HP CD-Writer becomes unaccessible to any other programme unless I either physically unplug it or reboot the system.
Please note that both cdrecord and cdrdao work perfectly well with this recorder.
This wole thing also happen if I try as root.
The manual says on pg.42 section 5.12, that if an external USB device hangs “…This is due to the USB/FireWire driver controlling your device. Updating your kernel should solve your problem…” However I found no mention of problem or USB patches with my kernel No. 2.4.29 both on google or http://kernel.org/ , so I don’t know what I could within the 2.4
I would be very grateful for some help, thanks.
