Problems with udev

I have three things I have problems with. All which I can trace back to udev.

1. cdburning. K3b which I use works great with  udev-058-4
with the last udev-062-1 it give me the following and halts.

k3b: (K3bExternalBinManager) Cdrecord 2.1 features: gracetime, overburn, cdtext, clone, tao, cuefile, xamix, plain-atapi, hacked-atapi
k3b: (K3bExternalBinManager) 2 1 -1  seems to be cdrecord version >= 1.11a02, using burnfree instead of burnproof
k3b: (K3bExternalBinManager) seems to be cdrecord version >= 1.11a31, support for Just Link via burnfree driveroption
k3b: (K3bDevice::HalConnection) initializing HAL >= 0.5
k3b: (K3bDevice::HalConnection) unable to connect to DBUS.
k3b: /dev/hdd resolved to /dev/hdd
k3b: /dev/hdd is block device (64)
k3b: /dev/hdd seems to be cdrom
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: init()
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: CD Mastering
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: CD Track At Once
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: CD-RW Media Write Support
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: DVD Read
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: DVD+R
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: DVD+RW
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: DVD+R Double Layer
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: DVD-R/-RW Write
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd feature: Rigid Restricted Overwrite
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: dataLen: 60
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: checking for TAO
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: checking for SAO
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: checking for SAO_R96P
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: checking for SAO_R96R
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: checking for RAW_R16
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: checking for RAW_R96P
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd: checking for RAW_R96R
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd:  Number of supported write speeds via GET PERFORMANCE: 2
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd : 5540 KB/s
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) /dev/hdd : 2770 KB/s
k3b: (K3bDevice::DeviceManager) setting current write speed of device /dev/hdd to 5540
k3b: /dev/hdc resolved to /dev/hdc

You may think why don't he just use that version then. Not so easy. Cause I also will play WoW, which don't work with udev-058-4, ognly create a dead prosess. But cedega works with udev-062-1.

Now I also have some flash based cards which I want to mount. The problem if I get any of the above to work I cant mount the usb/flash unit..

/etc/fstab

Re: Problems with udev

Ok now for an update. I have found out that I kan both use cedega and K3b with the last udev release. I just have to  choose which I program I want to use, and I can only use it one time. After that I only get dead prosesses and have to reboot if I want to use it again.

Re: Problems with udev

Latest k3b basically uses hal for assigning optical drives. Having hal running it works fine here:

k3b: (K3bDevice::HalConnection) initializing HAL >= 0.5

Actually I get some nonsensical errors like:

k3b: (K3bDevice::DeviceManager) scanning fstab: tmpfs
k3b: Could not resolve tmpfs
k3b: (K3bDevice::Device) Error: could not open device tmpfsfor reading
k3b: could not open device tmpfs (No such file or directory)
k3b: Could not resolve tmpfs
k3b: tmpfs resolved to tmpfs

... but after all that it does work fine.
Hope it helped.

Worked fine at first, but then I got this:

k3b: (K3bExternalBinManager) 2 1 -1  seems to be cdrecord version >= 1.11a02, using burnfree instead of burnproof

k3b: /dev/hdc resolved to /dev/hdc

Re: Problems with udev

Maybe its something hardware related: Is you burner (/dev/hdd) slave to another IDE/Atapi device?
Burners actually like being masters, either in Linux or Windblows...

Re: Problems with udev

Its slave to an dvd-rom. But I will change and try. The thing is that it hasn't been a problem before..

Re: Problems with udev

You'd better swap the drives, and use old, good 40-wire IDE ribbon and not 80-wire UDMA stuff.

I disagree...there's absolutely no reason to use one of the old 40-wire IDE cables.  The 80-wire (40-pin) cable is the exact same thing connectivity wise, only with extra ground wires placed in between the signal wires to provide some protection against cross-talk, thus allowing more accurate data transmission.

Re: Problems with udev

udev 064 was released yesterday, so upgrading to it might solve some issues... not sure when it might hit the Arch repo, though.

Then how come the 80-wire ones being directional and the master/slave plugs being explicit, while none of the above applies for 40-wire ribbons?

scarecrow...take a look here: Ultra DMA (80-Conductor) IDE/ATA Cables

I've moved back to devfs, and what do you know everything works tongue
I will have to try again with udev when it has aged a bit..

Re: Problems with udev

You might not be aware, but this month, devfs support will be removed from the kernel.  You'll need to stick with the older kernel unless you can figure out how to make udev work. :?
