Description kucharsk 1999-11-29 22:18:39 UTC
When installing RedHat 6.1 from a Sony cdu33a CD-ROM drive, the bad alias:

    alias cdu31a

is installed at the top of /etc/conf.modules, upsetting depmod -a, and no
link is created to /dev/cdrom.

The line in /etc/conf.modules should instead read:

    alias cdrom cdu31a

and a link should be created with "cd /dev; ln -s cdu31a cdrom"
