retarded desktop cdrom link
I'm running redhat 7.2 w/ KDE as my wm, and am having few problems...the goofiest (maybe i'm just lame =]) is this:
i had to manually install scsi emulation to burn cds w/ my acer atapi burner by editing modules.conf and lilo.conf. fine - now i can burn cds.
however if i try to access it via point and click desktop icon i get errors..like "error mounting block device. bad fs..blah blah". so i change the properties and set it from /dev/cdrom to /dev/scd0. same crap, however i can mount it from a terminal window FINE!
and after it's mounted then the icon opens up konqueror to browse just like normal!
also if i add a new cdrom device to the desktop via right-click and set it's properties to scd0, that works (i think..can't remember). If i delete the default icon it's ok for the session...till i reboot and there it is again! AND when i cahnge the one that's automatically there, when i reboot it is reset to /dev/cdrom!!
another note - i did some looking in /dev and see that /dev/cdrom is just a link to /dev/hdc, but it won't let me change the link destination even as root! i don't know if that'd slove it anyway.
Soo..after babbling, what i want is to be able to click on the cdrom icon and it work (aka open and mount the proper device - /dev/scd0 after emulatoin).
