Re: FC4 -> FC6 dvd writer not detected: SOLVED!

After I upgraded to FC6 my DVD writer was no longer detected, I suspect because I had to comment out a line in /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules to get my machine to boot. What can I do to get the DVD detected and the device made for it, after the machine is booted. Because I had to comment out the following line in 50-udev.rules:

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="?*", ENV{MODALIAS}=="?*", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe $env{MODALIAS}"

I had to put: "/sbin/modprobe snd-emu10k1" in /etc/rc.local for my sound card driver to be loaded. I assume I need another modprobe command for my DVD, I just don't know what it is...

It turns out that FC5 and FC6 must have a gorked up S3 Savage4 video driver. In the debugging output, I noticed the savage4_smbus was shown just prior to the crash on boot. I renamed the driver (i2c-savage4.ko) to i2c-savage4.ko.orig and the machine booted just fine. The Xinerama feature with multiple screens seems to work just fine without the driver so I don't know what the driver actually did for me.
