Like the dummy I am, I ran the 2.2.15pre7 diffs against my working
2.2.14 kernel without making a backup copy of that tree someplace.
Go ahead, laugh, I'll wait...
Mostly it works, except for one huge/glareing problem. The devices have
been moved around such that the scsi-ide emulation no longer puts the
reader portion of of my ACER 2x6 cdr-rw at /dev/scd0. After much
searching, I did find it at /dev/hdb, which puzzled me no end because
thats *exactly where it is in fact!*, Drive D: in dos terms. I made a
softlink from /dev/cdrom to /dev/hdb after deleting the old one that
pointed at /dev/scd0.
Unforch, after I got that sorted out, now xcdroast can't find the
writer on /dev/sg, and cannot seem to allow another device to be tried.
There is no response to clicking on that selection bar.
So, whats the naming scheme for the cd-writer stuffs now? I do have the
scsi-ide emulation turned on, and generic-scsi too, both as compiled in
options. I also note that its not found in the dmesg listing under
scsi1 either. I have the kernel rebuilding now just for grins, but 2
previous runs didn't make me aware of an error in re this.
