Recently I installed Red Hat 7.1 from the SGI XFS disc (very
nice work BTW) and when I first used the system, I had problems with
ide-cd not loading (as others have), but after running `depmod -a
` everything seemed to be solved, but then as I used the computer past
10 minutes, I noticed that if I didn't have any CDROM drives in
use/mounted during that time, I would lose my /dev/hd[ac] entries, and
the cdrom entries (those are my cdrom devices). I found that cron was
unloading unused modules every 10 minutes.
Now, if I put something like:
alias /dev/ide* /dev/ide (/dev/ide is a probeall module in
alias /dev/cdroms* /dev/ide
alias /dev/hd* /dev/ide
in my modules.conf, the ide-cd module is loaded whenever these devices
are accessed, but for some reason, the entries in /dev/cdroms keep
incrementing the cdromX number (IE the second time the module is
loaded, I have cdrom2 and cdrom3)
I can fix this by either including the above lines, and referencing
the cdroms with their original or new device names (IE /dev/hdX or
/dev/ide/* but NOT /dev/cdroms as those devices always change) OR I
can disable automatic module unloading.
I just wanted to bring this up, and ask if there was a better
