    Hi,

    I've been running Sarge with a 2.4 kernel and just decided to go up to
    a 2.6 kernel. The first and only problem I've noticed is that
    "discover" isn't finding my cdrom devices (one a dvd player). As Gnome
    doesn't find and mount an inserted CD anymore, I'm assuming this is
    related.

    As shown with a 'dmesg', the devices are there

            hdc: OPTORITECD-RW CW5201, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
            hdd: Pioneer DVD-ROM ATAPIModel DVD-106S 010, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

    and I can manually use them as usual to read and write CD's.

    This is what discover finds (or doesn't find)

            # discover cdrom
            # discover all
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) 746 Host
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) SiS963 [MuTIOL Media IO]
            Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) 5513 [IDE]
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) Sound Controller
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) USB 1.0 Controller
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) USB 1.0 Controller
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) USB 2.0 Controller
            Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) SG86C202
            NVIDIA Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400]

    I don't care so much about discover as much as that things don't
    seem to be running as usual under Gnome. CD's are not automatically
    mounted when inserted, "cdrom0" is shown under the icon instead of the
    actual volume name, etc.

    Thanks!
