Problems with symbolic links under /dev
I'm running Patato with kernel 2.4.4 (self compiled) and XFree 4.0.2 and
the XFce desktop from unstable.
I'm having problems with my CD-Burning device.
I have compiled ide-scsi support directly into the kernel as well as
SCSI CD support, this eliminates the need for any ide-cd drivers to be
compiled into the kernel.
When I test my kernel dmesg reports the following about my CD-Burning
device located on hdc.
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: IDE-CD Model: R/RW 4x4x24 Rev: 1.2C
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Detected scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x writer cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.12
This looks right to me, one thing that I have noticed thats different is
the vendor, my CD-R is an IOmega zip CD 4x4x24.
Anyway, after I compiled and tested the kernel I attempted to create a
symbolic link from scd0 to cdrom so that I could mount cd's and play
music through my cd-burner.
Basically, everything looks like:
root@NodeFilter:/dev# ls -l cdrom hdc scd0 sr0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 May 30 19:48 cdrom -> scd0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 22, 0 Apr 15 00:54 hdc
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 11, 0 May 26 15:22 scd0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 May 26 15:22 sr0 -> scd0
Now when I use cdrecord to test my cd-burner configuration I get:
root@NodeFilter:/dev# cdrecord --scanbus
Cdrecord 1.8 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2000 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you
Can anybody point me towards insight?
