Re: cdrecord

Are you offering any clues as to which
cdrecord this might be? (Where you got it,
how you installed it, "cdrecord --version"
output, ...)

Re: cdrecord

Welcome to the forums Billy!

Are you new to HP-UX? Remember that every thing is Unix is a file and as such the System needs to know the location for it.
To find out where a file is located you can always use the whereis command to fine an executable file.

Regards,

Jaime.

I'll admit that it it wasn't so clear as it
could have been, but he said, "cdrecord: No
such file or directory. Cannot open scsi
driver", not something like "sh: cdrecord:
command not found". His shell found the
"cdrecord" program, but his (unspecified)
"cdrecord" program could not figure out how
to do a "scanbus" operation.

I normally use cdrecord on VMS, where I
disable the "scanbus" capability, so I never
use it, but I did build a relatively recent
version on HP-UX, and it doesn't do much
better for me:

dy # uname -a
HP-UX dy B.11.11 U 9000/785 2012616114 unlimited-user license

dy # cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord-ProDVD-ProBD-Clone 2.01.01a48 (hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.11) Copyright (C) 199

cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open or use SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

It's not an ideal error message ("Cannot
open" _what_???).

On the other hand, while I know nothing, in
my source kit, there does seem to be a
"MKNOD.hpux" shell script, which seems to
have some useful effect. As it says in
"READMEs/README.hpux":

[...]
Note that there are no device nodes for userland SCSI on HP-UX,
you have to call the included shell script MKNOD.hpux first.
[...]

I don't have an optical-disc-writing drive in
that system, so I can't test everything, but
"-scanbus" does better.
