I have just recently installed Slackware 10.0 after a long stint of giving gentoo a try. I have to say I'm quite glad to be using my fav distro again. However I have ran into a small snag that I can't find an answer for anywhere....
My /dev/cdrom is missing, my cdrom is a normal ide one, nothing special, it's found in dmesg as "hdc" however /dev/hdc is missing as well.
'find /sys/|grep hdc'
also relinquishes nothing. The only drive that seems to be detected properly is my harddrive.
I'm currently running linux 2.6.7, I'm not using devfs, i'm using udev(as indicated by the /sys...) I have the cdrom module loaded.... I can't really think of any more relevant information I can give to help, but I'm hoping someone else other than me has had this problem and might know a solution
