Description Martin Norback 2001-12-11 17:21:38 UTC
I have a CD writer, which is used using ide-scsi emulation.
In /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info it states that this drive is device sr0, but
that's the old name for scd0 I think. So my little program which scans for
cd writers fail to locate the right device name.

Although my program now maps sr0->scd0, I still think this should be fixed.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
