external cdrw assigned to /dev/uba instead of /dev/sr0
 
Hi all,

I'm using Slackware 10.0 on my laptop and I'm running kernel version 2.6.9 which I compiled recently. Sysfs, hotplug, and udev are running and I had no problems with them until I had to use my usb cd writer.

In the past (kernel 2.4.x), I could burn cds with my Iomega USB cd writer by accessing /dev/sr0. Now, whenever I plug my cd writer into the usb port, /dev/uba gets created, but I am, of course, unable to burn anything, or mount discs. Here's the /var/log/messages output just after I plug the drive in:

...

The dmesg output:

I want the scsi /dev/sr0 to be created, instead of /dev/uba (or ub*). Is there some way to force hotplug to do that? I can't quite remember the kernel modules/options I compiled, but here's the output from lsmod, if it's of any help:
