- Code: Select all
sudo ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/cdrom
However, when I reboot my computer, the link is gone. Next time I need to rip a disc, I have to create the link again before cdparanoia will recognize the drive. Any ideas on how to make this link persist? I can't find any settings in the configuration of the programs, so I thought the symbolic link was my best bet. I'm open to other solutions as well. I just need the disc recognized, and don't think I should have to recreate the link every time. If there's no other solution, I could change the sudoers file for permission and set the link to be created at startup with a little script. I just think there has to be an easier, and more correct way.
