allowing cdrom recognition

Postby caramba on Fri Sep 28, 2012 2:21 pm

in LMDE, cdrom are recognized as cdrom1, cdrom2, hence a number of tools (ripperX among them) fails to locate cdrom.
A solution is to modify
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules
adding a line like
SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_PATH}=="pci-0000:00:1f.1-scsi-0:0:0:0", SYMLINK+="cdrom", ENV{GENERATED}="1"
in the block corresponding to the cdrom unit you want to use.
You should disable any similar line that may pre-exist in another block, linked to a potential CD-ROM unit
If you detect any side effect, please tell me.
thanks LMDE, I found it much more exiting than MINT13 on a machine with multiple boots.
