Question Panasonic CD Rom KXL-D720 

Forum: PCMCIA SCSI Host Adapter Issues

From: Steve Thomas <>

I've successfully installed RedHat 6.1 on my Toshiba Satellite 110CS and have most everything working. However, I can't get it to recognize my CD ROM which is attached to a scsi pcmcia card. The CD is on the list of devices that should work (tho not directly supported.) It is a Panasonic KXL-D720.

When I insert the card, the following message comes up:

parport0: detected irq 7; use procfs to enable interrupt-driven operation.

Is "procfs" a utility that I can use to make the fix? I can't find it anywhere in my linux set-up. Also, when I run the following commands for the card services, I get the results noted:

#cardctl config
Socket 0:
  Vcc = 5.0, Vpp1 = 0.0, Vpp2 = 0.0
  Interface type is memory and I/O
  IRQ 3 is exclusive, level mode, enabled
  Function 0:
    Config register base = 0x0200
      Option = 0x68, status = 0000, pin = 0000, copy = 0000
    I/O window 1: 0x0100 to 0x011f, 8 bit
Socket 1:
  not configured

#cardctl ident
Socket 0:
  product info: "KME", "KXLC001", "00"
  manfid: 0x0032, 0x0104
  function: 3 (parallel)
Socket 1
  no product info available

What do I need to do to get this thing working? I'm a REAL novice here and, despite reading the PCMCIA How-To, I still haven't a clue as to what to do.

Thanks for the help.

None You're misunderstanding the "not supported" bit

Sorry.  When I say the KXL-D720 is "not supported", I mean just that:
it does not work with the existing Linux drivers, period.

Well, I just re-read the list and I see that it is not on it now. But, I swear to you that it once was. I was initially working on this a couple of months ago and had to drop it for a while.

This drive was listed under the QLogic_cs driver the last I checked.
