    problem with fstab


    I'm having a problem with a program that requires a dvd rom.
    I keep getting an error:

    libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
    libdvdread: Can't stat /dev/dvd
    No such file or directory
    libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd
    Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/dvd (No such file or directory)

    I have a DVD burner but fstab is mounting it as a cdrom.


    # /etc/fstab: static file system information
    #
    # <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nodev,nosuid 0 0
    UUID=34acbe3d-82b3-4463-be2f-3d0c591edbb1 /boot ext2 defaults 0 1
    UUID=95c7bd88-1093-4ebd-a376-2c3066673d69 swap swap defaults 0 0
    UUID=9b4db772-bb3c-4016-b65e-4c9dc41b56dc / ext4 defaults 0 1
    UUID=f2a6fba1-0fd4-4ba8-8516-37eb59334236 /home ext4 defaults,user_xattr 0 1
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom user,ro,defaults,auto,noauto 0 0

    Can I edit this to make it a DVD.

    You can edit it to be whatever you want, however the device node must exist. I think it should actually be pointed at
    Code:
    /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
    and not
    Code:
    /dev/cdrom
    or
    libdvdread: Can't stat /dev/dvd
    No such file or directory
    libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd
    Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/dvd (No such file or directory)

    Ok I have fstab right now but I don't have dvd in the /dev directory. And that is what the program is looking for.

    Do you have cdrom or sr0?

    Here's the dvd player line out of my fstab file if it helps you any:

    Code:
    #/dev/sr0         /media/dvd    auto     ro,user,noauto,unhide             0     0
    You'll need to uncomment it if you want to use it. I have it commented out because I'm running KDE4 at the moment and it doesn't need such a line.
