Description Ronald F. Guilmette 2012-10-05 20:10:12 UTC
The ata(4) man page should be updated to take account of Blu-Ray drives.

Specifically, the line just above the line that says:

	device atapicd

should probably mention Blu-Ray drives, and also, in the FILES section, the
following line should be updated to mention both DVD and Blu-Ray:

     /dev/acd*               ATAPI CD-ROM device nodes

Other references to CDROM/DVD should also be updated.


See above.

(I don't know for sure, but I suspect that the existing ata driver will most
probably read Blu-Rays just fine.  However if not, then THAT fact should
most certainly be documented in the ata(4) man page.)
