Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
udev (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

On my ibook the node for DVD drive is /dev/hdc. This node has wrong group - disk. It should be cdrom. Please refer the discussion that happened on #ubuntu-devel at http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2009/01/10/%23ubuntu-devel.txt. It also contains the outputs of various commands.

This bug was fixed in the package udev - 137-1

udev (137-1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - udevadm test no longer has force option.
    - udevd has --resolve-names=early|late|never option.
    - Group of IDE CD-ROM drives fixed. LP: #315997.
    - Group of DRI subsystem fixed. LP: #317430.
    - /etc/udev/rules.d not existing is not an error. LP: #315780.
    - Bug where device nodes would be replaced by symlinks on rename has been
      fixed. LP: #315979.

  * Use --resolve-names=never in the installer and initramfs, since we don't
    have a useful name service. LP: #319199.
  * Since we don't have to worry about group lookup, we may as well copy the
    default rules into the initramfs as well. This actually double-solves
    LP: #315979.
  * Make sure the root filesystem is writable before attempting to copy
    generated rules across. LP: #224870.
  * Remove /dev/MAKEDEV symlink; the FHS no longer requires it when /dev
    is automatically managed.

  * It is not permitted to call udevadm trigger or settle during an upgrade
    without depending on udev. Attempting this will fail.
  * Change /etc/init.d/udev restart to actually restart the daemon, with a
    bit of detection to print a warning if we missed events while the
    daemon was down.
  * Refreshing /dev is now /etc/init.d/udev refresh-devices
  * Restart udev daemon after upgrade. LP: #317944.
