i am trying to use some cd-burning software (any), any any of the auto-detection seems to depend on the existant of /dev/pg*, but i do not have this.

looking in /etc/modules.devfs it seems the /dev/pg is an alias to /dev/sg seen here:

Code:

# SCSI generic
probeall  /dev/sg      scsi_hostadapter sg
alias     /dev/sg*      /dev/sg
alias     /dev/scsi/*/generic   /dev/sg
alias     /dev/pg      /dev/sg
alias     /dev/pg*      /dev/sg


am i missing something in my kernel? do i have to setup a symlink manually? I have scsi cd-rom support compiled for my card directly into my kernel (not a module) and the cdrom works.

what could i be missing?

no, my cdrw is a scsi cdrom, and my /dev/scsi directory is filled with the appropriate things, namely:

/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc (a scsi harddrive with id #0)
and
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target3/lun0/cd (my scsi cd-rw)

i also have the /dev/cdromn directory setup properly with:

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 and /dev/cdroms/cdrom1 (cdrom0 is ide)

my question is why dont i have /dev/pg*?
