Description of problem:
Udev should create/use scdX instead of srX devices.

<Anvil> notting : [last time it worked] udev was creating sr0 when
loading sr_mod 
<Anvil> notting : bug again ?
<notting> yeah

Sorry if it's a bit short but heh..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Grab an scsi or usb cdrom device.
2. Plug it. And modprobe sr_mod if it's not autoloaded.
3. ls -l /dev/cdrom

Actual Results:  /dev/cdrom points to /dev/sr0

Expected Results:  /dev/cdrom should point to /dev/scd0

Additional info:

MAKEDEV knows nothing about sr0, but easily create scd0 and friends.
For consistency, udev should forget srX devices.

well, well, I have also bugreports, which want sr? back...
Comment 2 Dams 2004-09-28 09:12:07 EDT
I dont care the one you want to use. But just be consistent. 
udev shouldnt use sr? while MAKEDEV only knows about scd?.

So, please, make a choice. /me votes for keeping scd?.

Comment 4 Dams 2004-09-28 10:02:53 EDT
(rereading my last comment). Sorry if i sounded a bit harsh. I only
want to say that whatever was chosen, both udev and makedev should use it.
Anyway, Thanks.
