i m using opensuse 11.1 64 bit and somehow my DVD RW detected as CD ROM

Known problem,
see
http://medwinz.blogsome.com/2008/12/26/workaround-for-dvd-access-on-opensuse-111/

I did the:

"Other workaround is set your user as member of "cdrom" groups. Then
create /etc/udev/rules.d/99-my.rules file with the following entry:

KERNEL=="sr*[0-9]", GROUP="cdrom", MODE="0660"



Reboot your computer and it should be ok now. The rule is to make sure
that /dev/sr0 is always owned by root:cdrom and that cdrom group has the
permission to read and write to the DVD/CD"

Or just install the HAL update we released this night, which fixes the
problem.

Ciao, Marcus

So, with the new hal update, should I go in and remove
the /etc/udev/rules.d/99-my.rules file?

Thanks
