I don't know if you are having the same problem as I did, but when I first
installed 9.1, I couldn't access my cdrecorder or dvdrecorder. I used the
fixes at http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2002/10/81_ide-scsi.html and
http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2002/05/dstark_combilw.html and now both work
fine. Whrn running lsmod, before ide-scsi was not loaded, after that fix,
the drives appeared, but I couldn't mount them. The second fix took care of
that. Don't know if that will help you.

Subject: [SLE] Problems after upgrade to 9.1
I'm having several problems after upgrading from SuSE 9.0 to 9.1. Can
point me in the right direction with these issues?
1. The following error message appears when opening many applications.
"kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon directory /opt/kde3/share/icons/slick/
group not valid.". I've checked the user/group/permissions of this
directory and its the same as the other files/directories
2. CDRom access. My cdrom drive became unusable after I upgraded to 9.1.
My /dev/cdrom and /dev/cdrecorder entries were missing. I fixed the
by creating hard links to /dev/hdc (my IDE CDR), but I'm having problems
this. Can someone post a working /etc/fstab, and the output of ls
-l /dev/cdr* from a 9.1 install (not an upgrade)?
3. Keyboard bounce. Sometimes my keyboard goes crazy after I do an
ifdown/ifup to eth0. Not sure if I have a problem with DHCP or the network
device itself. Any tips on what causes this?
4. Long delay during "coldplug" initialization. Since I have a laptop
the hardware won't change), do I need to have this service enabled?
5. Many "rpmnew" files found at boot-up. Most of these files I've never
changed. Should I overwrite the old, or delete the .rpmnew file?
