Exactly the same problem that I had when switching to 2.6.0 (some
early test version).

Can you please verify that you have a file /etc/modprobe.d/{some file
that sounds like devfs, '1devfs' at my system} which should look sth

------- snip ---------
alias /dev/discs/* /dev/discs
alias /dev/cdroms/* /dev/cdroms
alias /dev/cdrom /dev/cdroms

install /dev/cdroms /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi; /sbin/modprobe sr_mod; /sbin/modprobe ide-probe-mod; /sbin/modprobe ide-cd; /sbin/modprobe cdrom; /bin/true
------- snip ---------

I suppose there isn't one at your system. I did not have this file
when the problem occurred to me, but I copied it from a position I
unfortunately forgot to /etc/modprobe.d/1devfs, called update-modules
and everything worked then.

If the file _is_ present at your system, then it is probably just
misconfigured. Please attach it for analysis then.
