Mounting a DVD-RW Drive
http://forum.mandriva.com/en/viewtopic. ... 5&t=135420

There was a big problem still in 2011 rc2:
Mandirva 2011 did not mount correctly all IDE/PATA opical driver, so CD/DVD/DVD-RW coundn't be used,
and so neither K3B can be used to burn your disks



Yesterday, me and Alex Burmashev searched a solution for that ugly problem, trying a last minute fix

So he pushed a new UDEV release with a patch, it should fix at least a part of problems in this area.

Code: Select all

UDEV 168-2mnb2
   
Changelog: fix for ide cdroms mounted as /dev/hda
First results seems encouraging... but we need other testing and feedback
- Can you make now all existing updates, testing again if your CD/DVD IDE/PATA optical units works?
- Can you try K3b if it sees your optical units, and if do, burning some CD and DVD isos to check it?

let we know, ASAP!


Bye, NicCo
