cdrecord: Invalid argument. shmget failed
Did anybody try out to burn a CD using cdrecord on an alpha?
I just connected my Yamaha 4/4/16S on my AlphaStation 200 4/166 and
tried to burn a CD with this, but all I get (when trying to burn or
blank a CD-RW with normal or dummy test mode) is the message
/usr/bin/cdrecord: Invalid argument. shmget failed
Any idea, what this means? Is this a software problem or a hardware
problem. I had some trouble with the writer on my i386 system (seemed
to write, but created CD was empty, but all without a message), so I
wanted to try the writer connected to the Alpha (i.e. on a different
SCSI system), but now only this message.
BTW: Reading CDs with the yamaha works and cdrecord -scanbus also does
# cdrecord -scanbus
