during installation with minimal live cd. I see cdrom is link to sr0 in /dev. and now after installation I can not find cdrom & sr0 in /dev. instead I find hda for my cdrom. why did it change? I google for a while, and see udev will define the device name, I look in these rules files, I can not find anything about hda, but I find sr0. can you help to to set hda to sr0 or better to cdrom

JnZn558,

You have enabled the old IDE drivers in your kernel, hence you have the old /dev/hda name.
This probably won't work for lots of reasons.

All drives are now controlled by the SCSI layer, regardless of how they are connected electrically.
Your CD drive therefore needs
Code:
<*> SCSI CDROM support
in the kernel.

The
Code:
< > ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support (DEPRECATED)
---> line must be set to off.
Choose all of your low level chipset drives from the
Code:
<*> Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers  --->

You may need to choose a PATA driver from that menu if you don't have one selected now.

Now rebuild and reinstall your kernel.
