Graveman doesn't automatically detect my cd/dvd writer.
So i tried to add it manually ( /dev/cdroms/cdrom0) , but graveman still can't find anything. The only error message i get in the console is : "umount: /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target1/lun0/cd is not mounted (according to mtab)"
my mtab file:
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 / ext3 rw 0 0
none /proc proc rw 0 0
none /sys sysfs rw 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt/fat vfat rw,umask=000 0 0
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /boot ext2 rw 0 0
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0
Thanks in advance for the help provided
Well, i have now migrated to udev, but this has not quite solved my problem. Anyways thanks for pointing out that i was still using devfs - i am not an expierenced linux user yet...
Any other possible solutions ?
This is the output "cdrecord -scanbus" gives when executed:
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: Warning: Running on Linux-2.6.12-ARCH
cdrecord: There are unsettled issues with Linux-2.5 and newer.

cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

I hope this helps to find out what's wrong with my setup.
Try adding yourself to the "optical" group with 'gpasswd -a username optical' (where username is your username). Note that this command has to be run as root.
Log out and log back in and you should be able to use 'cdrecord -scanbus' and get something.
The group "optical" doesn't exist, and even if i as root execute 'cdrecord -scanbus' i don't get anything else than what i've already copy/pasted into this thread.
It's impossible to figure out what's wrong. i have no trouble whatsoever mounting and accessing a disc, but i am unable to rip an audio cd with ripperX or burn a disc with graveman / Gcombust....
Damn this is irritating.
Thanks for your support anyways, Shadowhand.
cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus
As of now i am using the "testing" repository and my drive is now correctly detected by graveman. Now i just got to recompile the nvidia drivers and figure out what's wrong with udev and my fat32 harddrive :?
Thank you very much for your time, fellow arch users
