Since I started running the 2.4.0-test kernels a couple of months ago
I'm not able to use my scsi cdrom and cdwriter.
Today I installed 2.4.0-test11, still the same problem.
bayes:/dev# ls -l /dev/scd0
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 11, 0 Oct 21 04:53 /dev/scd0
bayes:/dev# mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /cdrom
mount: /dev/scd0 has wrong major or minor number
bayes:/dev# mount -V
Each time I want to access the cdrom or cdwriter I have to reboot w 2.2.17
where it works fine.
I've even tried with creating a generic block device
bayes:/dev# ls -l /dev/scg0
brw-r--r-- 1 root root 21, 0 Nov 23 23:41 /dev/scg0
byes:/dev# mount -t iso9660 /dev/scg0 /cdrom
mount: /dev/scg0 has wrong major or minor number
Apart from this the 2.4.0-test kernels have been running very stable
for me. My systems are dual PII on ASUS PL97-DS and P2B-DS
According to Documentation/devices.txt nothing has changed according
major numbers for these devices from 2.2 to 2.4.
I'm grateful for any hint.
