    SubjectRe: 2.2.4 breaks my IDE cdrom ?
    On 28 Mar, Nomad the Wanderer spewed forth:
    ::
    :: I compiled and installed 2.2.4 and now I can't see my IDE cdrom.
    :: It detects it at boot time, but when I go to mount anything:
    ::
    :: {0}:dogbert:/home/nomad>mount /cdrom
    :: mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/hda as a block device
    :: (maybe `insmod driver'?)
    ::
    :: /dev/hda is my cdrom as I'm all SCSI.
    ::
    :: {0}:dogbert:/home/nomad>cat /proc/devices
    :: Character devices:
    :: 1 mem
    :: 2 pty
    :: 3 ttyp
    :: 4 ttyS
    :: 5 cua
    :: 7 vcs
    :: 10 misc
    :: 14 OSS
    :: 21 sg
    :: 119 vmnet
    :: 128 ptm
    :: 136 pts
    ::
    :: Block devices:
    :: 2 fd
    :: 8 sd
    :: 11 sr
    ::

    Well, from your own block device listing, you have fd (floppy), sd
    (scsi), and sr (scsi).
    Mine is the same:
    Block devices:
    1 ramdisk
    2 fd
    8 sd
    11 sr

    However, my CD is on /dev/scd0. /dev/hd* are h(ard) d(isks) on and IDE
    port (which would also include IDE CD's). So, try /dev/scd* or
    /dev/sr*, starting with 0 as the first cdrom. Also, have a look at
    /usr/src/Documentation/devices.txt to find the following, and more,
    useful information:

    block SCSI CD-ROM devices
    0 = /dev/sr0 First SCSI CD-ROM
    1 = /dev/sr1 Second SCSI CD-ROM
    ...

    The prefix /dev/scd instead of /dev/sr has been used
    as well, and might make more sense.
