I am running F19 beta, but I don't see the symlinks I'm expecting in /dev: There's a /dev/cdrom, but no /dev/dvd, /dev/dvdrw, etc. The real device nodes (/dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1) are there. Commands will work on the real device nodes, but having the symlinks is kind of handy. Is udev/systemd just not creating those links anymore?

Note: I also don't have a 70-persistent-cd.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d.

The old udev functionality seems to have been superseded by systemd. I've filed a bug:

I think it's a udev thing. I'm not certain though. I just turned to using the real devices nodes. You could file a bug at and the maintainers should be able to clarify.
