Updating Media Sources (CD-ROM) in MCC


My CD-ROM was /dev/hdc, but because I tweaked my CD-ROM for it to work in K3B, my CD-ROM is now /dev/sr0. The CD-ROM works fine in general. The only problem is that when I go into my Mandrake Control Center and try to install things, it asks for the CD's. I insert my CD but it is still looking for /dev/hdc, which of course, does not exist anymore because it turned into /dev/sr0. How do I tell Mandrake Control Center this?

Thanks

problem resolved!

I just needed to manually edit the /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg file.

Actuall what you wanted was the "Software Media Manager" in the menu, but hey your fix works!
