    Subjectquestion about values in /sys/block/???/device/type

    I'm trying to debug why my firewire harddrive is no longer handled by
    'hald', and it seems that the value in /sys/block/sdb/device/type is 14
    (0x0e) and this is not a value handled by the program. It is expecting
    0x00 for disk and 0x05 for cdrom.

    In the hald source (blockdev.c), there is a comment:

    /* These magic values are documented in the kernel source */

    and for the life of me I cannot find out where. You can't exactly grep
    for 0x0e and get anything meaningful!

    Does anyone know?

    BTW, I'm running the FC4 kernel: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4 on ia32, if that
