Bug#68665: Please add devices

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.16-2000-07-14

When people select one out of a couple of non-ATA-CD-ROMs they'll
run into an error, resulting in bug reports like Bug#35435.

I've investigated this a little bit more.  A couple of device files
are missing in the base system.

These device files are expected to be present in /dev by modconf
which manages driver modules to be inserted in the kernel as well
as the link to /dev/cdrom
(done via "cd /dev && rm -f cdrom && ln -s aztcd0 cdrom")

aztcd0: brw-rw---- root/cdrom     29,0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/aztcd0
sonycd: brw-rw---- root/cdrom     15,0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/sonycd
mcd: brw-rw---- root/cdrom     23,0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/mcd
       brw-rw---- root/cdrom     20,0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/mcdx
sbpcd0: lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/sbpcd -> sbpcd0
        brw-rw---- root/cdrom     25,0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/sbpcd0
cdu535: brw-rw---- root/cdrom     24,0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/cdu535
scd0: -rw-rw---- root/cdrom        0 2000-07-05 19:44 ./dev/scd0 link to ./dev/sr0

Missing device files:


/dev/mcd should be a link to /dev/mcd0, I guess.  If this is wrong, there's
a bug in modconf, please file a proper report then.



Unix is user friendly ...  It's just picky about its friends.
