Creating rules for udev


Hello again I hava a question for you guys I seem to missing the device to my second cdrom drive so I tryed creating a new rule for it but I couldnt quite figure it out. How would you guys go about makeing a rule for a drive that is using scsi emulation, by the way I recently recompiled my kernel to 2.6.9 and I am haveing no problems with burning cds via
scsi emulation, So how would I do this?

http://www.reactivated.net/udevrules.php is an excellent site with information on how to write udev rules.

However, fiddling with udev is not the cure to your problem - it can't create links to devices that don't yet exist or are not being seen.

I would leave that until we can get your drive being seen in the original thread

add the
/dev/hdd /mnt/dvd auto noauto,user,rw 0 0
add that to your /etc/fstb file and now make the directory in your root tree /mnt/dvd
now creat a new link to a device on your desktop or type mount /dev/hdd
then go to the directory cd /mnt/dvd. if this is a scsi devise it would be sda or sdb sdc etc etc.

add that to your /etc/fstab file and now make the directory in your root tree /mnt/dvd
now creat a new link to a device on your desktop or type mount /dev/hdd
then go to the directory cd /mnt/dvd. if this is a scsi devise it would be sda or sdb sdc etc etc.

Drakeo, firstly, why are you replying to threads that are so old? Secondly, your post appears to have nothing to do with the question.

And this is wrong, because device doesn't change name.
