    device files

    Can someone help me out and list(ls -l) the following files? I'm assuming you are using redhat

    1. /mnt/cdrom
    2. /dev/hdc
    3. /dev/cdrom

    Thank you.

    You break your symlinks in /dev?

    It doesn't matter what /mnt/cdrom is (as long as it's a directory), since it's just used for mounting on. /dev/cdrom should naturally be a symlink to whatever is your cdrom (which I'm guessing is hdc is your case). /dev/hdc should be a block device 22, 0 with appropriate perms. On my RedHat systems I simply use, which changes the owner to whoever is logged in at the physical console, at which time it has mode 600. When noone's logged in (at the physcial console), it's owned by root:disk and has mode 660.
