sysfs and udev lost my hdd & hdc devices


This is not another "I can't find my /dev/cdrom" problem.

EvilEntity 0.3
kernel 2.6.5
grub
ide0 has hda
ide1 has cdrom and dvd

My maching boots up. It detects /hda as harddrive during the bios and kernel boot. hdc and hdd are detected as my cdrom and dvd. However, they are not assigned a driver. Once booted, udev does not create a /dev/hdc or /dev/hdd. ide-cd is compiled into the kernel. Kernel is 2.6.5.

However, the cdrom and dvd are detected in /proc. Why would it be detected in proc but not in /sys? And since it's not in /sys, udev doesn't make a device for it!
