Re: [SLE] SuSE 9.1 problem - can't use/find DVD

I've just rebooted into SuSE 9.0 (and Fedora Core 2) and both devices work. It seems like the hardware detection isn't working correctly in SuSE 9.1 . Under SuSE 9.1 I get the following assignments:

DVD-RW uses /dev/hda with /dev/dvdrom as a symlink
DVD-ROM uses /dev/sr0 with /dev/dvd as the symlink

How do I go about manually configuring SuSE 9.1 to use /dev/sr0? Something with mkdev?

Hi All!

I just found a problem with SuSE 9.1 and my installation: I can't
use the DVD-ROM on my second IDE channel. The info from the various
logs and /proc is included below. I've swapped my DVD-RW on IDE0
with it, and it works fine. So, I doubt that it is the device (it
burns find, too!). It shows up in the BIOS. Note the difference for
IDE0 under /proc.


Any suggestions?

Did you check the jumpers on the drives? One should be master, the other slave, do not use cable select on these!
