Kernel 18.104.22.168, Slackware 12.0
Because mplayer looks for /dev/dvd and
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2007-01-24 07:35 /dev/dvd -> /dev/hdc
whereas my the disc I want to play is in /dev/hdd (/dev/hdc is a CD-ROM drive), I do
$ rm /dev/dvd
$ ln -s /dev/hdd /dev/dvd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2007-01-24 07:35 /dev/dvd -> /dev/hdd
OK. Now I reboot the machine and, when I look at /dev/dvd, again it is linked to /dev/hdc. How can this be? Or should it be a hard link that I must do? Thanks.
