Thread: IDE Master / Slave

  1. #1

    IDE Master / Slave

    Is there any way that i can interrogate the OS (RedHat 7.2) to discover which device the OS is seeing as the master and slave device on an IDE channel?

    For some reason my system (after a re-install) is seeing my master CD device as CDROM1 and my slave device as CDROM. This is obviously the worong way round and i need to sort it out.

    look at /etc/fstab to see the mount points
    otherwise, /dev/cdom and /dev/cdrom1 are symlinks to /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd.
    You can delete them and remake with ln -s hdc cdrom
