I am currently running SuSE 8.0 and am attempting to upgrade.
I have been using Linux since 1.2.8 and SuSE since SuSE 6.4.
I installed SuSE 8.0 clean using a SCSI CD ROM. My current
CD ROM is an IDE which uses SCSI emulation at boot time.
I found the knowledge article at:
which almost describes my problem, however the fix
(rerun hwscan --cdrom) did not solve the problem.
I start up Yast2, select "update system" and I get an error message:
No access to source media used on previous installation.
Continue with choosing new installation source?
I select Continue
Select location of source:
I select CD installation
And I get a popup:
No installation data found on medium
Could not mount the source medium
I have rerun hwscan --cdrom several times.
I did hwscan --list and deleted the files from
/var/lib/hardware that were CDROM files and reran
hwscan --cdrom. It didn't solve the problem.
I have rebooted just in case...
I boot using grub, and this is from my grub menu.lst:
# For booting Linux
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz-2.4.18 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdd=ide-scsi
I am able to mount the cd if I do: mount /cdrom.
From my fstab:
/dev/cdrom /cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
and my /dev/ directory:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Apr 10 13:34 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0
I tried ln -sf /dev/cdrom /dev/sr0 but that didn't help either.
From dmesg output:

Can anyone help me?
