Re: Bash Script Error - Unexpected EOF Error

That fixed that problem lol. Now I can't get the unzip to work correctly. I download the zip file fine. And if you manually unzip the file, it has all files in a root folder called BUILD, which I really don't want to have extracted, just the files/folders inside the BUILD folder. Then i start to get...

Re: Can't get CD/DVD Drive working

Since my 2nd/backup hd is taking up the only available ide controller, I can't switch to an ide controller for the 2 cd/dvd drives.

Isn't there any way to make this work?

Oh well....

Re: Can't get CD/DVD Drive working

The Connection tree is:

PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
-VIA VT6410 RAID Controller
--HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H10L SCSI CdRom Device
--SONY CD-RW CRX230EE SCSI CdRom Device

Does that help?

Re: Problems with CD Rom & DVD ROM

It might be my own stupidity, i thought there was 2 sata controller's but it could be just one. I am not 100% sure. I could open my pc again but it's really a pain in the ass to do it too often, all the cable's etc. How could i check if i have an ide controller or not? And how does the sata mode aff...

Re: How come so few users?

I am a window's convert. So far I really like linux.

No OS is perfect, takes time to learn how to do everything you want to do with it.

But as long as I can get my hardware working, 100% then i am here for the long-haul.

I really like learning, working and creating bash scripts.

Re: Problems with CD Rom & DVD ROM

To a seperate sata controller. In bios, i can switch that sata mode into 1 of 3 modes, and that mode seems to affect the availability of the cd-roms in linux. Sata, Raid or AHCI i think. I have tried all 3 mode's and it doesn't seem to work in any. I am able to manually eject, put in a cd/dvd, but t...
