Re: udev and cdrom on 2.6.13


and thanks for the reply!

I have the ide-cd module compiled into the kernel.
So it should be always there.

Hmmmn, strange thing...

I have the same problem with my iBook G3.
It seems that the cdrom will not be available until one loads the ide-cd
module. But this module should be loaded by udev once the cdrom is
detected. A strange circular problem.

Anyway I worked around this problem adding the ide-cd module to the list of
modules that are loaded automatically at startup
(/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 in Gentoo).
