any thoughts anybody?
As the subject notes my cdrom and sr0 devices are not installed with
the 2.6.8-1.541 kernel. Reverting back to the 2.6.8-1.535 kernel
brings the devices back. This is on a firewire based cdrom (Sony
The dmesg logs for the two kernel versions are here:
and while the symptom comes and goes with the version of kernel I
use, I'm not sure which other packages, if any, may actually be
responsible for this (any handy hints?)
After booting, I can modprobe "sr_mod" to get /dev/sr0.
I've put the output from lsmod here:

Received the following error during this morning's updates:
Cannot install the dev package: mounted devfs detected.
error: %pre(dev-3.11-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping dev-3.11-1
It seems bugzilla doesn't list a "dev" package option to file bugs
against. Does anyone know if the "dev86" listed in the bugzilla
menu would be the appropriate place?

Summary : The most commonly-used entries in the /dev directory.
The Red Hat Linux operating system uses file system entries to represent
devices (CD-ROMs, floppy drives, etc.) attached to the machine. All of
these entries are in the /dev tree (although they don't have to be).
This package contains the most commonly used /dev entries.
The dev package is a basic part of your Red Hat Linux system and it
to be installed.

I tried posing this question on the fedora-list, but got no
responses. I'm hoping someone on fedora-test-list will have an answer,
or point me to something in the development tree that fixes my
Under earlier distributions, I've always been able to
replace the Xaw shared libs with the equivalent Xaw3d libs. This
is a quick way of prettying up some older X applications (xterm, xcalc,
xfig, etc.) For some reason, this doesn't seem to work under FC2.
Normally, I'd just do this:
mv libXaw.so.7.0 /some/where/safe/
cp -f libXaw3d.so.7.0 libXaw.so.7.0
and, voila!, xterm gets a 3-d scroll bar.
Under FC2 though, xterm complains that it can't find libXaw.so.7.
It turns out that ldconfig is indeed failing to create the symbolic
link from libXaw.so.7 to libXaw.so.7.0. Creating the link by hand
doesn't solve the problem, though. Typing 'ldd /usr/bin/xterm' still shows
libXaw.so.7 as missing.
At first I thought it might be a problem with prelinking,
so I did a 'prelink -u /usr/bin/xterm'. That didn't seem to make
Has anybody successfully replaced Xaw with Xaw3d in this
manner under FC2?

It should be fixed in FC3 test2.
