all programms want /dev/cdrom to use the dvd-rom, but on gentoox is it /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 ???

i want to test some mutimedia programms like freevo (http://xbox-linux.sourceforge.net/docs/multimedia.html) but all programms search in /dev/cdrom for the dvd-rom

Strange, on my gentoox its /dev/cdrom... try this

ln -sf /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /dev/cdrom

This will link it to /dev/cdrom and all should be well in the universe.
