No cdrom/dvd in /dev


Hello,

I'm runing Slack 10 with 1 harddrive and a CD-rom/dvd combo drive. I just compiled the latest kernel (2.6.9) on it and got the nvidia and sound working etc.

However, I tried to mount a CD and it says there is no device. To cut a long story short there are no entries for harddisks in /dev/ other that hda. DMESG calls it hdc and the unit works with the old kernal version. I did enable ide-cdrom support and iso9660 file system in the kernel complie.

Obviously i took out the append ide-scsi out of the lilo.conf file. I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas. As i can't understand why there is no /dev/hdb or /dev/hdc.

The unit is being detected at boot up time, but there is nothing in /dev. Normally I would make a link /dev/cdrom to /dev/hdc (or whatever) and include the relevant line in /etc/fstab. Obviously as there is nothing in /dev this is not working. I don't have scsi cdrom support, but i understand this is not needed.

Thanks very much.

It should be due to something wrong with hotplug/udev system.
Did you enabled hotplug features while configuring the new kernel? (check your .config file @ "general setup" section)
Have your /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug and /etc/rc.d/rc.udev "rx" permissions?
What is the output of
ls /dev ?
Hope this helps
Ciao

Hello,

Hot plugging is enabled. I'm sure of that. I never had this problem on on older kernel verions, so i am presuming that udev was active.

I presume that a /dev/hd? should still be created on the 2.6.x kernel.

How do i confirm that udev is working if the permission are correct?

cheers

Try linking /dev/cdrom to /dev/sr0 (Under 2.4.x, I needed to link /dev/cdrom to /dev/scd0, but now under 2.6.x, I need to link it to /dev/sr0) HTH -- J.W.

Check by
which udev (as root)
if udev is properly installed (it should, if you did a full install of slackware), you get an output like "/sbin/udev"
I don't think such device will be named by the kernel "sr0" or "scd0" if you disabled ide-scsi emulation.
Try the command (for instance)
udevinfo -q path -n /dev/lp0
the output should be something like
/class/printer/lp0
then
udevinfo -a -p /sys/class/printer/lp0
will show a long list of infos about such device.
This, of course, means "udev" is working.
The script that creates ide devices nodes at boot is /etc/udev/scripts/ide-devfs.sh but is a bit cryptic (to me,at least).
Hope this helps

Thanks for the advice.

I know that udev is working and I have run the ide-devfs.sh script (and make script) but to no avail. I've also tried going back to scsi-ide emulation. Nothing seems to work. I know that the drive is okay because i have used it on the same install with the default kernel.

I'm really annoyed about this - it's just an ide-cdrom/dvd drive after all. Fly in the soup for my linux experience. I never considered something like this would be a problem. If I put ide-cdrom support as a module it doesn't load automatically, which tends to tell me that it's not being detected. However, at dmesg time during boot up it says that it's hdc. All very dissapointing.

Thanks

/dev/cdrom is /dev/hdb in slack 10

I've had exactly the same problem when I upgraded to slack 10. I found out tough that my dvd-rom and cd-recorder were /dev/hdb and /dev/hdc. This probably has something to do with udev wich is being used by slack 10.

Try (as root to be surtain the permissions are right) "eject /dev/hdb" if this command ejects your cd-drawer then /dev/hdb is your cd/dvd device. If it works just create a link to /dev/hdb: "ln -s /dev/hdb /dev/cdrom" (as root)

The above solved the problem for me

Thanks for responding.

I'm at work at the moment (uk time). so I can't output ls -l /dev/. However, I can tell you that there are no devices list for hd* other than hda1-9 for the first disk. And there are not devices for sr,scd or anything else. However, there is a device for fd. Which is odd considering I specified NO floppy disk support when compiling the kernel - i didn't put a floppy disk in when i assembled the PC. fd* isn't the cdrom drive in any event.

Glad to hear that i am not the only one. Do you think i should download a newer version of udev? Or even an older one?? I'll post ls -l /dev/ when i get home. The problem is that there are no devices to make a link to. So ln -s /hd* doesn't work either. Nor does running the ide-dev script.

How come dmesg calls it /hdc, but udev doesn't make a device called that in /dev???? I don't consider myself a total noob, but I can't understand what's not happening.

I don't have a disk burning suite in windoze and i don't want to ever have to boot in to 2k anyway. Know what i mean??

Good day to all out there.

Hi,
I know that this post is pretty hold but I have exactly the same problem than yours:
no more /dev/hdc (my dvd-rom), /dev/hdd (my cdrom-rw) et no more /dev/fd0 (...) just after udev was installing on my system (Debian GNU/Linux Sarge uptodate).

Do you fix it?

I found a connexe problem (I guess)
if udev is running the /proc/sys/dev file is empty
.
Despite this problem I'm really enjoy about this feature and I really want to use it

hatorisama.

I had this problem a week ago, if you search you'll find the whole thread.

If you look in /.dev you'll find hdc and hdd or whatever your missing drives are. From there I just added /.dev/hdc to fstab and it worked perfectly.

If you want more info on it search for that thread, it was only a few days ago, and you'll see how it the problem got fixed in proper detail.

Having the same problem here, i know that udev is workign as i have it set up to work (correctly i add) with my iRiver mp3 player,

however there is no /hdx other than /hda


below is the cd entry for dmesg, and ls-l of my /dev

Read this part:


"ide-scsi is deprecated for cd burning! Use ide-cd and give dev=/dev/hdX as device"

So if your CD/DVDROM drive in on hdc, just add the following to lilo:

append="hdc=ide-cd"

A example would be:

image = /boot/bzImage
root = /dev/hda1
label = 2.6.10
read-only
append="hdc=ide-cd"
