Re: RSCSI and the 2.6 kernel?
Could you post the contents of /proc/scsi/scsi from the machine with the
burner physically attached? Unless gentoo does some really odd things I
would expect the burned to be /dev/scd0 or /dev/sr0. Of course between
kernel options and udev config, anything if possible for a device name,
but I'd like to see if it has a more typical 2.6 name.
I would like to burn from my client to my server. I used to be
able to when the server was kernel 2.4, but it's changed recently to
2.6. The client refers to the burner as /dev/hda, but the server refers
to it as /dev/hdb. There is clearly something wonky going on here. The
story below tells the tale. Any clues?
At the client machine I

It seemed like a good idea at the time
