Description c.m.western 2003-04-26 14:05:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
The disk numbering generated by updfstab is wrong in the presence of optical
disks, as it seems these are counted in the same way as hard disks by the kernel
but ignored by kudzu

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install optical scsi disk drive
2.Install removable USB hard-disk

Additional info:

The device that causes the problem is:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 02 Lun: 00
  Vendor: MATSHITA Model: PD-1 LF-1000     Rev: A105
  Type:   Optical Device                   ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 02 Lun: 01

  Type:   CD-ROM                           ANSI SCSI revision: 02

The following patch works for me:
