udev ... I think


Just installed udev, with kernel 2.6.6 on Debian unstable system, but I get this when booting up, this comes from dmesg:
Code:

The result is that I can't open my CD-r drive, when I push the button to open the drive, nothing happens. It's a SCSI writer. Anyone know how to solve this?

what does you ftsab say? is a udf-filesystem in sr0?

"cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!" looks more like XFree than bootup.

It's an old SCSI CD-writer. I removed udf from my fstab and everything seems fine now.

I have another question, before udev I had a symlink from /dev/hda to /dev/cdrom. But with udev I can't have this anymore, I can create the symlink, but after a reboot the link is gone.
What's happening and can I fix this somehow?

well, i don't know much about udev. is it a new way for automatic management of the /dev entries? i used devfs for a time and keep using it at an old server. but it's obsolet or not maintained anymore. there you had a configfile in which one could say to do symlinks and other things about configuration. as i've told i don't know much about udev.

try the following line in your fstab - since you can't use udf-fs (it's the filesystem used on dvd's) if it's not in there.
/dev/dvd_____/dvd______iso9660,udf___ro,users,noauto,exec____0____0

replace the devices with yours. if you'll mount a medium in /dev/dvd now, first iso9660 (cdrom) and then udf (dvd) is tried.

BTW: you don't erally need the link /dev/hda -> /dev/dvd it's just for cosmetics and every program that uses this link (if there are any) can be configured to use /dev/hda directly.

udev is the replacement for devfs, devfs with kernel 2.6 has become obsolete.
I removed the word udf in my fstab all together and it's fine now.
