question about values in /sys/block/???/device/type

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



I'm trying to debug why my firewire harddrive is no longer handled by
'hald', and it seems that the value in /sys/block/sdb/device/type is 14
(0x0e) and this is not a value handled by the program.  It is expecting
0x00 for disk and 0x05 for cdrom. 

In the hald source (blockdev.c), there is a comment:

    /* These magic values are documented in the kernel source */

and for the life of me I cannot find out where.  You can't exactly grep
for 0x0e and get anything meaningful! 

Does anyone know?

BTW, I'm running the FC4 kernel: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4 on ia32, if that
