Description Krzysztof Dubowik 2007-01-30 00:15:05 UTC
Description of problem:
Sylink /dev/cdrom changes randomly after system restarts. Sometimes it points to
/dev/hdc, sometimes to /dev/hdd. My /dev/hdc is a DVDROM, /dev/hdd is a DVDRW.
Here's a fragent of dmesg output

How reproducible:
randomly, but often (link changes every 2-3 reboots)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot system
2. ls -l /dev/cdrom
Actual results:
The symlink changes from /dev/hdc to /dev/hdd and back across reboots

Expected results:
The symlink always points to /dev/hdc
