Subjectdevfs cdrom mount pb
My linux box was runing fine till I decide to try devfs on RH7.3 with 2.4.18-3 kernel
after some adjustments everything is nearly OK with the new /dev concepts but when I
try to mount a cdrom it says that the device is not a block device.
cat /proc/scsi/scsi gives :

Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: PLEXTOR Model: CD-R PX-W1610A Rev: 1.02
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 01 Lun: 00
Vendor: SAMSUNG Model: CD-ROM SC-152C Rev: CS05
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02

and ls -l /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/* gives
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 21, 1 jan 1 1970

why has my cdrom entry switched from a block to a character device and how to cure it ?

thanks Denis
