Problem with k3b identifing burner device under Mandrake 9.2


Hi y'all

I have recently installed Mandrake 9.2 and am now having a problem with K3B trying detect my CD-burner. It was previously working fine under 9.1. I think the problem may be in the way that the devices on my system are now identified.

Under 9.1 the burner was detected as /dev/scd1 by the K3B setup utility and available in the drop down list within k3b itself.

Under 9.2 the burner is detected as /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/cd (0,1,0) by the K3B setup utility. However when I enter K3B / setup /devices there is no information under the Reader or writer for the devices and if I try to burn a CD the Burner device drop down is empty.

I think the problem my be with the way that the devices are being defined as 'mount' displays the following:

none on /dev type devfs (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 on / type ext3 (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part10 on /downloads type ext3 (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part7 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part12 on /media type ext3 (rw)
none on /mnt/burner type supermount (ro,dev=/dev/scd1,fs=udf:iso9660,--,iocharset=iso8859-15)
none on /mnt/dvd type supermount (ro,dev=/dev/scd0,fs=udf:iso9660,--,iocharset=iso8859-15)
/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target1/lun0/part1 on /music type ext3 (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part11 on /opt type ext3 (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part6 on /usr type ext3 (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part8 on /usr/local type ext3 (rw)
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part9 on /var/www type ext3 (rw)

rather than the usual way as shown in 9.1 ie

/dev/hda2 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /dev type devfs (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620)
/dev/hda7 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda12 on /media type ext3 (rw)
none on /mnt/cdrom type supermount (ro,nodev,dev=/dev/scd0,fs=auto,--, iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0)
/dev/hda11 on /mnt/win_data type vfat (rw,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0)
/dev/hda1 on /mnt/win_part type vfat (rw,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0)
/dev/hda9 on /opt type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda10 on /tmp type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda6 on /usr type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda8 on /var type ext3 (rw)

The '/etc/fstab' file on 9.2 still describes the mount points and the device names in the 'normal' way ie

/dev/hda10 /downloads ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda11 /opt ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda12 /media ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 /usr ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda8 /usr/local ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda9 /var/www ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdd1 /music ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
none /mnt/burner supermount dev=/dev/scd1,fs=udf:iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-15 0 0
none /mnt/dvd supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=udf:iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-15 0 0
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd /mnt/dvd auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/cd /mnt/burner auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

The last two lines were added by the k3b setup program

Does anyone know why the device names have changed once they have been mounted and if they can be changed back to the 'old' way of naming ?


Thanks
Stv T
