Description of problem:
CD- and DVD-burners require the use of the ide-scsi driver. Unfortunately, the
ide-scsi module and ide-cdrom driver are mutually exclusive for any one device.
Therefore, the installer/kudzu, or perhaps the kernel, should:
a) Detect CD-ROM like devices with write capability;
b) Force use of the ide-scsi driver for those device;
c) Set up the appropriate links as /dev/cdrom -> sr0 instead of -> hdc, etc.
One possible way of doing this would be to completely deprecate use of both the
ide-cdrom and ide-tape devices, and use ide-scsi for *all* IDE tape- and CD-ROM
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try to use a CD-burner in a newly installed system. (cdrecord -scanbus should
detect the device. If not, it's broken.)
The installer sets up some of this stuff. I don't know that we'd want to go to
ide-scsi for *all* CDs and tapes. Maybe if the other drivers were removed from
the kernel and it always worked this way without configuration. :)
In my experience, this is set-up perfectly in Limbo2. CDrecord works directly,
and mounting works afterwards.
Still problems in Limbo2 with configuration of cd-burner?
This bug is solved long ago, I believe.
I didn't find this problem in Limbo2 or (null), running cdrecord -scanbus as
root always works, and mounting afterwards works as well.
