Mechanism for assigning SCSI device names
I am working on an embedded Linux system and want to get a clue what I have done wrong. :rolleyes:
I have a box with an internal and an external harddrive.
Both drives are formatted with ext3 and the internal drive is sda (i.e. sda1, ..., sda4) and the external drive is sdb (i.e. sdb1, sdb2).
The Linux version in this box is 2.6. and removing the external Hard drive and inserting it again always gives sdb. The same way behaves a Feodara Red Hat PC (also 2.6.).
Adding new features, I managed to break this. With my software, when I remove the external hard drive, being sdb, I am getting sdc when I insert it again.
I thought, this is because the external hard drive may have not been unmounted before pulled out but unmounting it manually on the command line doesn't help either.
